Odell Beckham Jr.’s hand strength is well-documented. But the Cleveland Browns star reminded us all in his warmups that he’s an incredible all-around physical specimen.
Video from Empower Field in Denver for today’s game against the Broncos shows Beckham launching the ball nearly 70 yards deep to teammate Jarvis Landry.
To put into perspective jut how deep that is, that’s only one-yard shy of the mark Joe Flacco had at the 2008 College Football All-Star Challenge. Future NFL quarterbacks Chad Henne and Matt Ryan both threw in the 60-69 yard range.
Maybe it’s the thin air and strong winds in Denver that contributed to the deep distance, but it’s still an incredible feat.

As good as Beckham’s arm strength is, Cleveland is going to need Beckham to use those incredible hands more today.
The Browns are 2-5 on the season and several games back in the wildcard race. Beckham, to this point, has only found the endzone once and is on pace for the fewest of his career in a full season.
