Expectations are high once again for Odell Beckham Jr. and the Cleveland Browns.
It goes without saying, but Odell Beckham Jr. is coming off a major disappointing season in his first year with the Cleveland Browns. Once he was trade by the New York Giants to Cleveland, experts out there picked Cleveland to not only make the playoffs, but push for a Super Bowl run too.
Things couldn’t have gone worse, though, as the Browns sputtered to a 6-10 record and lost their last three games of the season. Things were so bad, reports surfaced Beckham and multiple other Browns players were hoping to get traded.
While he’s still in Cleveland, Beckham’s haters continue to troll him left and right. The only way he’ll be able to shut everyone up and prove once again he’s one of the top receivers in the game is by having an All-Pro campaign in 2020.
Odell Beckham Jr needs to bounce back in a big way for the Browns this season
Beckham has been working overtime this offseason to get himself ready for 2020. This includes working out with new New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton.
Last season, Beckham posted 74 receptions for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns. While those numbers might be impressive for some wideouts in the league, it wasn’t good enough for someone of Beckham’s caliber. The receptions, yards and touchdowns were all career lows for him in a season, not including 2017 when he missed the majority of the year due to a fractured ankle.
If the Browns have any shot of postseason football this winter, the team will need Baker Mayfield and Beckham to be on the same page from start to finish. Should that be the case, look for the Browns to be an exciting team once again, and for Beckham to prove all of his doubters wrong.
