Despite his hefty salary, the NFL's reduced salary cap and the fact that the Browns made it to the divisional round of the playoffs without him, Odell Beckham Jr. will remain in Cleveland for the 2021 season.
Not only will Beckham (who is slated to make $14.5 million next year) be back, the Browns have no plans to part with Jarvis Landry, who is on the books to make $12.5 million next season. Cleveland would like to re-sign Rashard Higgins, who is set to enter free agency on March 17. Higgins' market value is at nearly $25 million over four years, according to Spotrac.
"I think he's a dynamic player who can be incredibly productive in this system, so we're looking forward to getting him back healthy," Browns general manager Andrew Berry recently said of Beckham, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. Berry added that Beckham is "doing great" as he continues to rehab from his torn ACL injury. The three-time Pro Bowler caught 23 of 43 targets for 319 yards and three touchdowns in seven games last season before sustaining his season-ending injury. In 2019 (his first season in Cleveland), Beckham caught 74 of 133 targets for 1,035 yards and three touchdowns.
