The Cleveland Browns kicked off their 2021 training camp with plenty of excitement surrounding the team. Their re-tooled defense and talented offense have them positioned as serious Super Bowl contenders. There's also high hopes for this squad's potential with Odell Beckham Jr. returning from his Week 7 ACL tear as well.

It turns out another reason to be optimistic has emerged from training camp.

Reports out of camp have pegged Donovan Peoples-Jones as a potential breakout player to watch this upcoming season. He's showing serious playmaking flashes in practice, including a 70-yard TD hookup with quarterback Baker Mayfield on Wednesday.

Peoples-Jones showcased his big-play potential in 2020. He turned his meager 14 receptions into 304 yards (21.7 yards per reception), touting a season long of 75 yards and 2 TDs. He also racked up 379 kickoff return yards on 18 attempts. And of course, he made one of the best plays of the season for Cleveland, hauling in a beautiful game-winning grab against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.

The former sixth-round pick out of Michigan could take a huge step in his second year if his camp performance carries over to the regular season. With a talented trio of Beckham, Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins around him, there should be plenty of open looks for People-Jones to capitalize on. And it'll be interesting to see whether or not he can push Higgins for that WR3 role this season.

The Browns currently own the eighth-best odds to win the Super Bowl at +1600, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
