The EU has prolonged the Brexit transition period until October 31, 2020. The UK is still not entirely sure what it will do in this time frame, but Prime Minister Theresa May’s government said they would “welcome” President Trump to make his remarks about a potential bilateral trade deal between Europe and America during that time.
The “browns roster projection 2021” is a post that was made by the Browns on their official website. They say they would welcome Josh Gordon back with open arms.
Odell Beckham Jr.’s time with the Cleveland Browns has come to an end. The dissatisfied wide receiver was formally released by the Browns on November 5, putting him on the waiver wire in search of a new club. Teams interested in claiming him have until November 8 to do so. The three-time Pro Bowler and former Rookie of the Year is expected to be pursued by a number of clubs.
When it came to Beckham Jr. leaving Cleveland early, the writing had been on the wall for a while. He and Baker Mayfield, the quarterback, were never able to communicate well. However, at the end of the day, this does not make the issue any less perplexing.
The Browns’ experience with Odell Beckham Jr. was perplexing.
Andrew Berry, the Browns’ EVP of Football Operations and General Manager, made it official by announcing that WR Odell Beckham Jr. would be released.

The Browns had high hopes when they acquired Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants in 2019. Despite playing with an aging Eli Manning, OBJ has proven himself as a true WR1-type prospect in New York. The odds were in his favor if he teamed up with a younger quarterback like Baker Mayfield.
While OBJ’s first season with the Browns was successful (74 receptions for 1,035 yards), the next 13 games were a total catastrophe. Beckham Jr. caught 40 catches for 551 yards across two seasons in 2020 and 2021.
Mayfield started quietly sowing the seeds to push his way out after it became clear that he and the Browns were unwilling to alter and adapt their methods to get Beckham Jr. the ball. He sought a trade just before the deadline this year, and his father then posted a video highlighting his son’s lack of targets.
Before the deadline, the Browns were unable to complete a deal. They did, however, fulfill OBJ’s desire for a new beginning by releasing him. It had been an unusual experience. The response of some of OBJ’s colleagues prior to his dismissal, though, was even odd.
Odell Beckham Jr. received an unexpected message from Joel Bitonio.

Browns guard Joel Bitonio sent an unexpected message of understanding the day before OBJ was released.
“When he’s on the field, we believe he’s a tremendous player, but we don’t know what his situation is.” “I’m sure we know as much as you do,” Bitonio added. “However, if he wants to rejoin the squad, I’m sure we’d welcome him back with open arms.”
When asked about his wide receiver’s desire to leave Cleveland, even Mayfield, who seems to be the source of OBJ’s unhappiness, was cool and collected.
When asked whether the news bothered him, Mayfield replied, “Hurt?” “Nah. Surprised? Yes.”
The Browns have made it obvious that they want to move on.
Joel Bitonio of the #Browns on @obj: “When he’s on the field, we believe he’s a fantastic player, but we don’t know what his position is. We probably know just as much as you do… But if he wants to rejoin the squad, I’m sure we’d welcome him back with open arms.”

Beckham Jr. was formerly regarded as a key member of the Browns’ team. He’s now looking for a new club on the waiver wire.
Players in the Browns organization were clearly taken aback by the news. They gave words of empathy instead of lashing up at OBJ for the manner he pushed his way out. In the midst of a disappointing season, it’s a pretty mature thing for a club to do.
It wouldn’t have surprised me if Bitonio, Mayfield, or another Browns player went out of their way to criticize OBJ (someone did anonymously).
With everything out of the way, the Browns are ready to move on and ahead. In the passing game, Jarvis Landy will most likely take up the slack, while younger receivers Donovan Peoples-Jones and Anthony Schwartz will also have to step up.
