Cris Carter says we’ll see the best Odell Beckham Jr. ‘we’ve ever seen’ with Browns
Hall of Famer Cris Carter believes that Odell Beckham will be even better with the Cleveland Browns for one reason in particular as he said on Fox Sports’ First Things First.
"Jarvis knows Odell. Them getting back to grinding, working out together, talking with Baker, falling back in love with the process of building yourself into a player. I believe we're going to see the best Odell that we've ever seen."

It would not be surprising to see Odell Beckham have an even better season in 2019. He often drew a lot of double coverage from opposing defenses due to his playmaking ability when he played for the New York Giants.
Now, he’ll be reunited with former LSU teammate Jarvis Landry in Cleveland. They were a dynamic duo back in their college days, and they know how to communicate with each other. That makes this duo probably the most dangerous in the NFL going into the 2019 season.
With Landry, Odell Beckham won’t receive nearly the number of double coverages on him as he did the past. Beckham is coming off a season where he caught 77 passes for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns. His numbers should only get better with second-year quarterback Baker Mayfield at the helm.
Landry was Mayfield’s favorite target last season with 81 catches, 976 yards, and four touchdowns.
Odell Beckham Jr is now on a team where the organization wants him. He gets to work with an ascending quarterback and work with his LSU teammate in the NFL. Throw in the fact that the Browns will be favorite to win the AFC North in 2019 should make Beckham even more motivated for greatness.
Beyond the receivers and quarterback, the Browns have David Njoku, Nick Chubb, and Kareem Hunt. The talent on both the offense and defense is incredible. With Beckham on board, the Browns’ future looks even brighter than ever.
