Von Miller says Browns’ Odell Beckham Jr. is ‘new LeBron’ of Cleveland

The Cleveland Browns made a major splash this NFL offseason upon acquiring All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. via trade with the New York Giants. As a result of acquiring Beckham, the Browns immediately became the talk of the town around the league while many players in the NFL have taken notice of Cleveland’s sudden upswing.

Denver Broncos pass rusher Von Miller is one of these players while the former Super Bowl MVP even compared Beckham to current Los Angeles Lakers forward and former Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James.

“He was hurt, he was hurt initially,” Miller recently told James Palmer of NFL.com. “He loved New York, he loved his teammates, he loved the team. Whenever you get hit with something like that, you’re going to be hurt, you’re going to feel some type of disappointment. Immediately after that he was excited for his new opportunity. I think you saw all his teammates on Twitter and Instagram, they love him as well, they’re excited to have him. The whole city of Cleveland is excited to have him, he’s the new LeBron there, so he’s excited about that and he’s going to be ready to go.”
Of course, the Browns began rebuilding in a major way last offseason en route to acquiring another veteran wideout in former Miami Dolphins pass catcher Jarvis Landry. Not only that, but the Browns infamously selected former Oklahoma Sooner quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
