Cleveland Browns News: Odell Beckham will be a problem in 2020

OBJ vows to misbehave in 2020 but that’s not bad for the Cleveland Browns
Odell BeckhamJr. said it wasn’t a threat, but a promise. The Cleveland Browns receiver is vowing that 2020 is going to be a big year for him as he comes in with a chip on his shoulder.
Earlier this offseason he said he was done being humble and was ready to show that he still had some juice in the tank. For the Browns, that’s great news considering his “down year” still consisted of him catching 74 passes for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns. And he was injured for much of the year while putting up those numbers.
Now, he says things will be different and the exact words OBJ used in describing his mindset were “worst behavior.” However, that clearly means he will be a problem for opponents, which is a great thing for the Browns.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

Odell Beckham Jr. promises strong year for Cleveland Browns in 2020
Our own Clay Goodwin dug into OBJ’s words, which came on his Instagram story. In addition to Beckham promising his “worst behavior,” we also got a great look at him in his new Browns uniform — which we have to admit look sick especially when compared to their old threads.
Odell Beckham handed insulting ranking NFL Spin Zone top 100
One of the reasons OBJ is ready to change his mindset is the way he’s been perceived. For proof of that, check out his ranking in the latest NFL Spin Zone top-100, which has him barely ahead of two players who sat out all of 2019.
Quote of the Day: Nick Chubb on the trust Kevin Stefanski has already established with players — Anthony Poisal, ClevelandBrowns.com
"“We all trust in him. One of the things that stuck out to us when he came here, he said, ‘You have to embrace the suck.’ That is what we have been doing. Nobody wants to wear a mask all day, nobody wants to take all this time just to go out on the field and play football, but it is where we are. You control what you can control, and that is what we have to do for now. I think him being confident and telling us to embrace it has really led us all to see that this is the new normal for us and we have to get used to it.”"
There’s always going to be the doubters out there who hate to hear this but Kevin Stefanski is winning the offseason. He holds himself well in press conferences and the players are all buying in. Sure, we have to see it done in the regular season but this is where it all starts. It’s also all we have to go on with him as a head coach — and thankfully it’s all been positive.
