Odell Beckham Jr.’s roller coaster offseason continues with a core surgery. The surgery was apparently to repair a muscle in his core. He is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for the 2020 regular season.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the surgery took place on Tuesday.

Beckham is also in a bit of legal trouble following LSU’s National Championship win over Clemson. He was spotted handing out money to LSU players, which is against NCAA rules. He also had a warrant out for his arrest in New Orleans for simple battery. It has since been rescinded. This warrant came after he hit a security guard at the Superdome on the backside. An Instagram video documented the incident.
On the field, his year did not go very well either. The Cleveland Browns were touted as Super Bowl-hopefuls, only to go 6-10 and miss the playoffs. Rumors swirled that Beckham even told opposing teams to, “come get him.”
Odell Beckham played in all 16 games in 2019. He collected 74 receptions on 133 targets, for 1035 yards and only four touchdowns. The yardage total was exactly the same as his rookie campaign, but he caught 12 touchdowns in his first season.
The Browns have hired a new coach, Kevin Stefanski after ex-coach Freddie Kitchens was not deemed acceptable for a second season. The NFL will have to wait and see in 2020 if that was the move necessary to get Cleveland back into the playoffs.
