2. OBJ and Landry were great together
One of the biggest moves this offseason came when the Browns traded for wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. The former New York Giants receiver comes to Cleveland and instantly makes their offense more dangerous.
OBJ is a dynamic receiver capable of changing the game in a single play and he joins a receiving corps that was already pretty talented. While that’s a good thing, there usually is a bit of a question as to how the ball will be spread around — and in Cleveland that concern was raised as both Beckham and Jarvis Landry are used to receiving the majority of the targets on offense.

Sure, the two are great friends and were together in LSU before turning pro but this is the first time they will play together after reaching star status in the NFL. Despite the loss, the early returns for these two look promising.
Despite playing a tough — and underrated — defense, each wideout made their share of plays. Beckham finished with 71 yards receiving and Landry had 67 — while averaging 16.8 yards per catch as he was able to get deep which has been a knock on him in the past.
The production was good especially when you factor in the poor play of the offensive line as well as the fact that neither were on the field in the preseason. In fact, OBJ said he still wasn’t 100 percent as he’s been dealing with a hip injury. Look for both to continue to play well together and get even better as they move past this frustrating game.
