Jarvis Landry motivated by Odell Beckham’s ‘process’ during the offseason
Jarvis Landry has found some inspiration in Cleveland Browns teammate Odell Beckham Jr.
Landry, who battled through a hip injury for most of the 2019 season, underwent surgery last February 2020 and has been working out and rehabilitating away from the Browns in Florida. Despite being far from the team though, Jarvis has kept in touch with OBJ as they help each other out even with the coronavirus pandemic keeping everyone physically apart.
“Seeing his [Odell Beckham Jr.] process has been motivating me from afar,” Jarvis Landry told Jake Trotter of ESPN. “The player he is, his work ethic, motivates me. And going back and forth with our videos about just where we are in our rehab process is something that has been encouraging us to get even better than we were before.”
Beckham is almost on the same boat as Landry, as he also underwent an offseason core surgery to correct the hip and groin injuries that bugged him all throughout last season with the Browns. OBJ has been progressing well in his rehab and even said that he’ll be better than ever this 2020.
Just like his teammate, Landry is also showing some promise on his recovery. He initially considered playing through another year without any surgeries done, but after struggling and not being in his best shape throughout the 2019 campaign, he decided that surgery was for the best.
“I was going to try and put off and play the tough guy for one more year. But just understanding where I was, the things it was not allowing me to do, I did not want to be part of the reason for the team not having success,” the 27-year-old Browns wideout added.
Landry is said to be targeting to be back in shape come August, and he is expected to join Beckham in the field once the 2020 season begins.
