New York Jets and Odell Beckham Jr.: The wrong man at the wrong time

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is the wrong man at the wrong time for the New York Jets.

Wednesday’s conference call (quarantine edition) featured much of the same. Joe Douglas hopped on the call—from home with his kids running around—to preach the same message.

Value is important.

The market dictates final terms.

Depth is key.

Talent evaluation is king.

Competition is crucial.

While every point is meaningful when looking to kickstart a football program, the New York Jets general manager reaffirmed his top goal.

“The plan is the same: to create the best culture in sports and that involves bringing in the right people,” Douglas said.

If Douglas truly believes what he preaches, Odell Beckham Jr. is the wrong man at the wrong time for this organization.
