Odell Beckham “excited to be part of the excitement” with Browns

Wide receiver Odell Beckham touched on a wide variety of topics in a recent interview with GQ, but his meeting with reporters at his youth football camp on Tuesday was focused on what 2019 will hold for the Browns.

Beckham’s arrival after last year’s 7-8-1 record has spurred a lot of hope in Cleveland about what the team can do come the fall. There are also those that think the Browns may not be ready to take that next step in Freddie Kitchens’s first year as a head coach, but people are paying close attention either way.

Beckham downplayed buying into expectations, but said he thinks the team is on the rise and that it’s exciting to be part of a group drawing so much attention.

“Expectations are just expectations, but I’m excited to be part of the excitement,” Beckham said, via WKYC. “I’ve watched from afar the struggles, where they didn’t win a game the one year, won one game and went to 7-9. It’s just been on the come-up. It’s just that time and I just want to be able to give absolutely everything I have and see where we land with that.”

Beckham acknowledged that the goal of every team is to win the Super Bowl, but said that he wants the Browns to “take it day by day, week by week” once they start making their way through his first season with his new team.

  1. “I’m excited. You can call me quite excitable with all of the exciting excitement,” OBJ said excitedly.

  2. scoops1, I agree. I’m not a fan, but this would either be a great preview of an exciting season, or an enormous train wreck. OBJ just makes both outcomes very possible.

  3. OBJ actually has the right attitude. With or without him, Browns should be vastly improved and exciting to watch.

  4. Just don’t get too excited about the Browns not named Odell because he’ll not be excited by that which will ultimately lead to the wrong sort of excitement as seen with the Giants–who are oddly a less exciting team without him yet still excited he is gone.

  5. It’s just that time and I just want to be able to give absolutely everything I have and see where we land with that.”

    Everything he has is part time player.

    I predict anothe trip to Miami on the off day before a playoff blowout.

    I’ll take them seriously if they win a game at Pittsburgh and/or Baltimore.

    In 2018 the Brown went 1-1 vs the Ravens (W 12-9 L 26-24) and 0-1-1 vs the Steelers (L 33-18 and T 21-21).

  7. I really don’t understand people. The Browns are a previous professional football dynasty who have been down a long time. They now have a front office and players bringing, yes I said it, excitement back to the North Coast. Why such haters? Why do people have to kick them when they are trying to get back up? Are the rest of the team’s fans worried? If not you should be…..

    whoopie doo, just give them the lombardi already in that case.

  9. As with other disgruntled stars who have changed teams this offseason ( Brown, Bell, etc.), everything changes once the player or team struggles. Adversity brings out the true character of a man.

  10. Broadway Becks already misses his NYC red carpet lifestyle. This dude will bolt the first chance he gets.

  11. Cleveland to the rest of football fandom: “We are nourished by your hatred!” Feed us!

  12. As a Browns fan this is fun! Normally we have an offseason of Motorcycle accidents, star players getting spiked on their feet, Drug suspensions, fake ID’s in Vegas etc.. This year we get players being confident, and salty jealous fans of other teams..

    It’s refreshing..

    The Browns will be better than the Giants.

    They better be or the Browns are having a MISERABLE year. LOL. What I find funny is he does these interviews in magazines like GQ bashes the team he used to play for then when he gets asked about it by reporters. “I’ve moved on.” Well dude if you’ve moved on why do the interviews. I dunno maybe its because they paid you a bunch of money. If you can talk to GQ about it you should be able to talk to your local reporters about it.

    The Browns were better last year… whats your point?

  15. The Browns dynasty years are upon us. All hail the Browns. Without question the best team in the National Football League.

    No, it’s not too early to start talking about 18-0.

    Can’t wait to see these mouths fall flat on their faces.

    You’ll be waiting along time for that one…..LOL

  17. Oh he’s excited alright…until they start losing or when Jarvis Landry gets more looks from Mayfield because OBJ is double covered every play….take your pick.

  18. 5-11, The implosion will begin after a sideline spat between mayfield & OBJ in game 6. It will be reported the tension has been palpable since training camp. Also Mayfield is going to find out how year 2, especially for a QB is much more difficult than year 1.
