Odell Beckham Jr. "trying to kill it" this season - ProFootballTalk
Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has returned to dying his hair blond. It’s symbolic, Beckham explained, as he tries to rebound from an off season.
“This is how I feel,‘’ Beckham said during a discussion entitled ‘The Bigger Picture’ with good friends Cam Newton, Victor Cruz and Todd Gurley, via Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com. “I’m tired of playing your game. This year, I’m trying to kill. That’s it.”
Beckham topped the 1,000-yard mark, with 1,035 yards, but he scored only four touchdowns last season. He did not make the Pro Bowl for the third consecutive season.
“Each year I still have 1,000 yards and they want to talk about ‘you’re not the same player,” Beckham said. “I understand the game now. And that’s why you see the blond back. There’s nothing you can tell me.”
The Browns will have to figure out how to spread the ball around and yet keep their playmakers happy at the same time. They also have Nick Chubb, who rushed for 1,494 yards last season, Jarvis Landry, who caught 83 passes for 1,174 yards, and Kareem Hunt, who led the league in rushing in 2017 as a rookie with the Chiefs.
“I want an opportunity to catch the ball,” Beckham said. “I want the same opportunities that all of these other receivers have in the league when they’re getting 2,000 targets, ending up with 150 catches, I want to be in a position where I can succeed because football is not the same as basketball. Football is so much more of a team sport.”
Al I hear is me, me ,me, me ,me
All I hear is me, me ,me, me ,me
Stoo crying when the ball doesn’t come your way.
With Landry, Hooper, Bryant, Higgins, Chubb, and Hunt…should be discussing how many points the offense will be putting up per week and how many wins over .500 this season.
The trade with Cleveland is a rare case where the Giants got the better end of the deal.
Hey Odell welcome to Cleveland. You should have stayed in New York where your brand would have been more valuable.
1000 yards isn’t a great feet anymore in this pass heavy nfl. Especially for the money this clown makes it’s a poor return on investment. This will be his last year in Cleveland.
Last time I checked their is only one ball in play per play.
So good luck getting the ball tossed to you every play.
Not gonna happen
It’s clear Eli made OBJ. He was average before and after Eli.
“trying to kill it” this season
So he wasn’t trying before?
It’s really hard to pull for guys like this.
True fans support the colors and the city, but guys like this make it tough. It is really hard to like him.
