Kevin Stefanski: Odell Beckham Jr. is progressing very well

The Browns won a playoff game for the first time since 1994 last season, and they were able to do it without one of their most talented offensive players.

Odell Beckham Jr. tore his ACL midway through the season, but is expected back for a third year with the Browns in 2021. During his Tuesday press conference, head coach Kevin Stefanski said Beckham is on track with his rehab.

“He’s progressing very well,” Stefanski said. “He’s trending in the right direction.”

Cleveland’s offense continuing to improve in Beckham’s absence became a storyline throughout last season. He had only 23 catches for 319 yards with three touchdowns before going down for the rest of the season.

But it stands to reason that if Beckham can return to the form he displayed in the early part of his career, he can be a significant weapon for the Cleveland’s offense in 2021.

  1. I like OBJ. Just hope he keeps his head down (except when he runs practices routes in games), practices and works hard, and stays relatively healthy, considering no one stays totally healthy while playing an NFL season.

  2. Every offseasons it’s the same story with this guy. How he talked the browns into running it back again with his 15 mil cap hit is nuts. Odell is the equivalent to the NBA player that keeps making all star games long after they have been great. Obj has been avg and hurt for 4 years now. That’s for ever in football terms. The guy plays scared and small. His main asset is speed and hes turning 29, coming off a torn up knee and 4 avg years, on a run heavy team. He isn’t worth 15 mil, not to the browns, not to anyone. Guy needs to work on catching with 2 hands, drop % is awful too.

  3. This is a huge season for him. He’s averaged 4 TDs a season since 2016 and that’s a LONG time ago in NFL years. One more “meh” kind of year and the Browns will be moving on and interest from other teams will no longer be high.

  4. I don’t have a problem with OBJ as long as he stays out of Mayfields head, but I’m afraid this won’t be possible !!!
