While nothing guarantees that Odell Beckam Jr will remain quiet, the Cleveland Browns stand confident knowing that their outspoken star receiver won’t bolt from training. Beckham recently criticized the NFL’s decision to continue with the 2020 season, despite the pandemic affecting more people across the country.
According to Cleveland general manager Andrew berry, Beckham, who joined the browns from the New York Giants last year, has been very much committed since reporting to the team. Berry said on zoom that Beckham is focusing on working hard. He has been engaging actively in the group, and he is looking forward to having a great year.

During his interview with the Wall Street journalist last month, Beckham expressed concerns about playing this season with an increase in the number of infections of the pandemic. Beckham condemned the owners for not being mindful of players’ well-being. He felt like the season should not happen, and he was well prepared for it not to happen. He said that he would not mind the event not happening.
The interview took place before the league, and the NFL players association agreed on safety measures so teams could open their facilities. Beckham reported in time, took a test for the disease, which came out negative three times. He has also participated in the browns teams’ activities.
According to Berry, he feels that everything the three times pro-bowler says gets magnified. He noted that Beckham needs to know that too. Berry further stated that having a player of Odell stature generates a lot of attention. He added that Odell’s words should be well calculated and consistent. With that said, there are plenty of dialogs and conversations going on with Odell, not only just through the summer, but as he returned to Cleveland.
Beckham return being a positive thing, there is a general good feeling of everything about the league and the PA has agreed upon.
In the last season, Beckham did not perform as expected. That’s attributable to the core muscle injury that limited his explosiveness. He only took a few saps at full speed in practices leading up to the games. He went on surgery in January to repair the injury he sustained in training camp after he had skipped voluntary workouts in the team.
In the last eleven games played, Beckham finished with seventy-four receptions for one thousand and thirty-five receiving yards and four touchdowns. That was the fewest in the previous six seasons that he participated in.
Berry media came just after the team announced that Andrew billing is opting out due to the world’s pandemic. There were no specific reasons provided by the team on billings decisions. Billings, who signed as a free agent, is the third player to opt-out of the match.
According to Berry, the decision by the players to opt-out is a purely personal decision, and he is looking forward to having them in the next season.
