Baker Mayfield: Odell Beckham does things I’ve never seen before

Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham paid quarterback Baker Mayfield a compliment in June when he said he has to adjust to the quarterback’s arm strength because it “is completely different” than anyone he’s played with in the past.

Mayfield has had to do some adjusting as well. Mayfield has learned that Beckham can make plays with defenders “draped all over him” and those plays lead to Mayfield returning the compliment in the wide receiver’s direction.

“He can do things I’ve never seen before,” Mayfield said, via Albert Breer of SI.com. “The pure talent is unreal. As we grow chemistry together, it can be pretty special. He makes my job easy. I’m happy to be able to be at camp with him and get better every day.”

Mayfield said that he believes he is a “much better” quarterback than he was at the end of last season and Beckham’s arrival is one of the reasons why people expect the Browns to be a much better team in 2019 than they’ve been in some time. If they pull that off, the mutual admiration society will only get bigger.

  1. Knowing the egos of their two receivers, Jarvis won’t be to thrilled to hear that.
    Small prediction: Before seasons end, this team (offense) will implode and Mayfield will be apologizing for half of the statements that come out of his mouth.

    “Mayfield will be apologizing…” I don’t see him reflecting on anything for at least a few more years.

  4. I find OBJ unlikable.
    As talented as he is I hope he doesn’t do nearly as well as is hoped.

  5. Seems like everyone has forgotten about Jarvis Landry. That’s a scary thought.

  6. You mean like head-butt a kicking net and have a meltdown on the sidelines?

  7. So you’re saying Baker boy you never saw Jarvis Landry do them? I have (when he was in Miami that is…). but I will say this…I’ve never seen a football player wear a dress!
