Talk about coming out of left field, a report from a radio host in New York this morning has stirred up the Vikings fanbase for what could be! According to @MarcMalusis from WFAN in NYC, The Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns are currently in the midst of discussions that could send Odell Beckham Jr to Minnesota for a 2nd and 5th round pick via trade.
That's it, there's no more information on this report to help substantiate it or shoot it down but he went with it on the air on one of the biggest local market radio shows in the country today. That said, it wouldn't be wise for him to simply make something like this up and go with it.
On the other hand, Paul Allen did a little recon work and was told by his source that this is simply #FakeNews.
Still, this is a crazy time of year each year leading up to the draft. Good people tell fibs, put out #FakeNews and throw good friends off the scent if only to gain a slight advantage come draft night next week. At the very least, there is smoke here surrounding this rumor...what we don't know is if there's a fire or if we're simply following the diversion of a purple & gold colored smoke bomb?
