Odell Beckham Jr. was unsurprisingly among the most notable absences on Wednesday at Cleveland Browns’ OTAs, meaning the wide receiver has attended only one of the first five such voluntary sessions, which occurred last Tuesday.
There are five OTAs remaining on the Browns’ 10-session schedule, reports Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, with that portion of the Browns’ offseason program ending next week.
Along with skipping out on a majority of the OTAs thus far, Beckham also declined to attend a three-day minicamp the NFL allows new coaches, which is the case this offseason with the Browns and Freddie Kitchens.
The Browns of course have little recourse concerning Beckham’s ongoing absences given the voluntary nature of Organized Team Activities. Browns management and staff — not to mention Baker Mayfield — continue to toe the company line regarding Beckham by stating regret over his no-shows but at the same time downplaying the situation as it stands.
