Michael Silver reports Browns coach Kevin Stefanski told players that Odell Beckham "is essentially not on the team right now."
Silver added that Stefanski informed players the team told Beckham to stay home which explains why he wasn't at practice today. All signs point to the disgruntled receiver being done in Cleveland. Rumors swirled around possible trades for the former star but nothing materialized ahead of Tuesday's deadline. The Saints were reportedly interested in him but didn't want to take on much of his salary. If he is cut by Cleveland, Beckham will land on waivers where teams can claim him and his lofty cap hit this year. If he clears waivers, the Browns will eat the remainder of his dead cap hit and Beckham will become a free agent. Beckham's situation remains in flux but fantasy managers can plan on being without him for Week 9.
