Shohei Ohtani has taken the major leagues by storm with dominant hitting and pitching for the Angles. Do the Browns have players who could play both ways?
One of the most dominant batters in Major League Baseball right now is Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels. He’s an All-Star who has over 30 home runs this season while also boasting a record of 4-1 as a starting pitcher.
This is an incredibly rare thing to see as players in most sports typically focus on one side of the ball when in the pros — but they might have played all over while coming up.
With that being the case, it begs the question about which players for the Cleveland Browns could follow Ohtani’s lead and play both ways.
3. Odell Beckham, WR to Kicker
So this one might not be exactly fair since it’s not offense and defense but Odell Beckham, Jr. could very easily take up some kicking for the Browns if they needed him to. The guy is incredibly talented as a wideout but his ability to put the ball in the air with his leg is also pretty impressive.
OBJ grew up loving soccer and has said that David Beckham was a childhood idol (how could he not be with the same name and all). There was even an opportunity for him to join the U.S. men’s soccer team while he was a teenager.
While it seems he made the right choice since he became one of the best wideouts in the NFL, the fact remains that Beckham could easily make a move to kicking with his soccer background if the Browns ever needed him to. But for now, he will stick to entertaining fans with trick kicks during practice.
