Browns notebook: Odell Beckham Jr. says he’s ‘more motivated than ever’ after playing through injury, having surgery – Nate Ulrich, Akron Beacon Journal
"“I think myself as well had a slice of humble pie this year, because I was hurt all year. I couldn’t really say I was hurt. I didn’t want to make it seem like I’m having an excuse, but I really couldn’t do what I wanted. I just couldn’t move the way that I wanted to, so I think that’s why I’m more motivated now than ever."
Despite dealing with a core muscle injury for nearly the entire season, Beckham still managed to have more than 1,000 receiving yards in what many consider a down year. Now that he will have the injury fixed and will have built up chemistry with Baker Mayfield, there is reason to believe Beckham can have a major turnaround in 2020.
