Browns chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta dismissed a report the team is trying to trade star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., whose future _ whether in New York or Cleveland or anywhere _ always seems in question. DePodesta said on a conference call Thursday, April 16, 2020, from his home in California that the team is not working on a deal involving Beckham, who was injured during his first season with the Browns after arriving in a blockbuster trade last March.
