CLEVELAND — The Browns say the newest trade rumors about star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. are false.

Paul DePodesta, the team's chief strategy officer, dismissed a report that the team has had trade talks with the Minnesota Vikings about Beckham.

DePodesta said the team is trying to put a championship core of players together and are not looking to deal a player of Beckham's caliber.

The flashy 27-year-old Beckham struggled with injuries last season after arriving in a trade from the New York Giants.

DePodesta said he has no reason to believe Beckham isn't happy in Cleveland.
