In a recent interview, Beckham said that he’s excited to be back after rehabbing for nearly a year. The main word he’d use to describe how his rehab has been going is “great.”
“Everything’s feeling great,’’ Beckham said, via Cleveland.com. “For being at the 8.5-, nine-month mark. I’m doing very well in all the progressions. We’ve had a great team around and guys who kept everything, we’re just running a certain race. So everything’s going well. I can’t wait to be back and be able to do more football stuff. When I rehabbed this offseason, you have to do physical therapy for so long of it and it just starts to lay down on you. But just excited to be back, excited to see all the boys, I get to see Jarvis (Landry) and I’m just excited to be back.’’
The Browns went 11-5 this past season, winning six of their last eight games to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2002. They then beat the rival Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wildcard Round, before losing in the Divisional Round to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Unfortunately, Odell Beckham Jr. didn’t get a chance to be a part of that seemingly magical run. He suffered a torn ACL in Week 7 and finished the season on injured reserve.
Beckham would finish the season with 23 receptions for 319 yards and three touchdowns.
Heading into the 2021 season, the Browns have playoff aspirations and are considered by many to be Super Bowl contenders. If Beckham is back to 100-percent, and plays like he has when he’s at his best, the Browns might just meet those expectations.
Will OBJ and the Browns make the playoffs this coming season? Can they reach the AFC Championship Game or even the Super Bowl?
