Odell Beckham: From Giants despair to Browns as ‘new Patriots’
Odell Beckham Jr. has big plans for the Browns.
Speaking with GQ ahead of Monday night’s Met Gala, the lightning-rod receiver spoke about his offseason trade from the Giants, stating he felt “something in my gut … I just wasn’t very happy,” around December.
“It just became not the right fit,” Beckham, 26, said, believing he also would have been dealt last year. The Giants shipped him to Cleveland in March a season after inking a five-year, $90 million contract.
Now reunited with former LSU teammate and longtime friend Jarvis Landry, whom Beckham said he would “take a bullet” for, the receiver is looking forward to the Browns going to the next level, thanks in part to quarterback Baker Mayfield.
“I would say he’s next, but I feel like he’s now,” Beckham said of last year’s first overall pick. “He’s Brett Favre — he’s going to be a Hall of Famer.”
While Beckham also envisions himself in Cleveland until further notice, he’s hopeful his stay includes a few championship parades, a la the New England.
“I plan on being there for the next five years and trying to bring as many championships there as possible,” Beckham said, adding he wants to turn, “[The Browns] into the new Patriots.”
It appears Beckham is already looking to Tom Brady for notes, as the duo posed for a photo together Monday night at the Met, along with Patriots receiver Julian Edelman and Beckham’s former teammate running back Saquon Barkley.
“The talk different in this circle …. ?TALK #Met #KILTthat,” Beckham captioned the snap on Instagram.
