4. OBJ catches everything
There have been a lot of ups and downs and a lot of highs and lows so far in the Cleveland Browns training camp. Some players are had their share of good days mixed with bad days — as well as some days in between. But there’s one guy who has been consistent since the team met in Berea, that’s wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Ever since the team stepped on the field in 2020, Beckham has been simply catching everything. He’s been making circus catchers over his head, one-handed grabs like the OBJ of old, and burning past defensive backs with. On Saturday, he was at it again and it was hard to find anyone covering the team not being willing to praise him.
Beckham joined the Browns last season after being traded away by the New York Giants for safety Jabrill Peppers, as well as a first and third-round pick. The big haul given up by Cleveland put even more pressure on Beckham that he was used to dealing with despite being in New York.
He also had to deal with a litany of injuries that require surgery in the offseason. Beckham was vocal about his frustration with how he played last year and he didn’t feel like he got fair treatment either. He has since vowed to prove any doubters wrong about him.
So far, he’s doing all he can to make good on those words. We need to see it in the regular season still, but training camp OBJ has been phenomenal.
