While it appeared Odell Beckham Jr. was drawing interest this week from a handful of teams, at least one player discouraged him from going to a division rival.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson, an LSU alum like Beckham, revealed Thursday he advised the star player to avoid the Green Bay Packers.

The Browns agreed to grant Beckham’s release, but he hit waivers and had to clear the process before he could choose which team he wanted to sign with.

In two-plus seasons with the Browns, Beckham played in 29 games and caught 114 passes for 1,586 yards and seven touchdowns. He played only 13 games over the last two seasons because of injuries.

This season, Beckham has played through a shoulder injury. He had been targeted the most of any Browns receiver but only had 17 catches for 232 yards to show for it.
