Odell Beckham Can Bring Relevance to the Cleveland Browns with Jarvis Landry Reunion


It’s no secret. I despise the Cleveland Browns organization. Not because I’m a rival fan, but because they have consistently been an embarrassment to the NFL, and could care less about changing that. However, in recent weeks, they have moved up a couple notches from incompetent, to palatable (slightly) with moves that can possibly change the culture for the organization — including potentially adding New York Giants wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr.

It started with the addition of an actual proven starting quarterback. For years, the brain trust in Cleveland has yet to figure out which quarterback to draft, and instead of finding a solid veteran, they’ve continue to go down the path of irrelevance because of it. However, with the addition of former Buffalo Bills starting quarterback, Tyrod Taylor, they now have an immediate leader who can elevate their offense and win games from the position.

In addition to Taylor, they have paired Josh Gordon with a dynamic playmaker in former Miami Dolphins receiver, Jarvis Landry. This past season, Landry posted numbers of 112 receptions, 987 yards, and 9 touchdowns. While Gordon only played a handful of games in 2017, his skills need no further explanation as his body of work speaks for itself.

Not to mention the fact the Browns were able to keep both Top 5 picks, which could be used to further bolster their offense by drafting Sam Darnold (No. 1 overall), and Penn State running back, Saquon Barkley (No. 4).

Now, with Landry in the mix, and the allegedly having issues with Beckham, he is now lobbying for his former LSU teammate to join him in Cleveland and recreate the magic they had together as college buddies.

That would give Taylor three number one options to throw to, effectively daring defenses to pick their proverbial poison. Not to mention, the Browns have Carlos Hyde, and the possible addition of Barkley would make this offense Top 10 worthy.

However, there’s no need for Browns fans to get excited just yet. While they’ve made significant strides, the NFL Draft is not here yet, so there is still time for them to screw things up. Subsequently, if they are able to build upon their offseason moves and make the right draft picks — and somehow land Beckham — the Browns will be on their way to the playoffs for the first time in forever.
