Browns News: Odell Beckham Jr. Looks Back to Full Strength in Workout Video
While a lot of players are looking forward to the 2021 NFL season, one player who may be anticipating it more than others is Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. The three-time Pro Bowl selection tore his ACL last season. Fast forward to nearly eight months later and Beckham's recovery is going exceptionally well.
Bleacher Report uploaded a recent video of Beckham working out onto its "Gridiron" Twitter page. The video shows Beckham Jr. running at full speed on a treadmill, looking like he's back to full strength.
Odell Beckham Injury Update
Considering how the Browns would love to capitalize on last season's Divisional Playoffs appearance, a healthy Beckham Jr. helps to continue that success. After all, he's a special talent when healthy. Whenever he's played at least 12 games in a season, he's gone on to record at least 1,000 receiving yards — something he's done five times in his seven-year career.
Assuming Beckham Jr. is fully healthy once the 2021 NFL season begins, he's going to look to continue the chemistry that he's been developing with Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. The wideout has tallied 97 receptions for 1,354 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns in 23 games since arriving in Cleveland. Mayfield also had a 91.1 passer rating when targeting Beckham in 2020.
The Browns are projected to be a top-10 team around the league next season. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing their odds to win Super Bowl 56 at +1600 (7th). A healthy Beckham Jr. would go a long way in maintaining those odds or, better yet, improving them.
