New England Patriots are a golden standard in the NFL in terms of winning and Cleveland Browns’ new acquisition Odell Beckham Jr. knows that. This is why he made it his goal to bring the Browns multiple championships and make them the new Patriots.
“I plan on being there for the next five years and trying to bring as many championships there as possible, turning [the Browns] into the new Patriots.” – Beckham recently told the GQ magazine.
Beckham also shared his thoughts on Cleveland’s quarterback Baker Mayfield, saying that he has the potential to be the best QB in the league.
“I would say he’s next, but I feel like he’s now” – he added. “He’s Brett Favre—he’s going to be a Hall of Famer.”
Odell Beckham Jr. landed in Cleveland from New York Giants in a blockbuster trade that saw Jabrill Peppers, first round pick (17th overall) and third-round pick (95th overall) heading in the opposite way. Beckham ended the 2018 season with 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games he played.
While Cleveland Browns are far from being New Patriots, there is definitely a reason for their fans to be optimistic about the future. Besides Beckham and Mayfield, Browns have several other talented and young players, including defensive end Myles Garrett, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and cornerback Denzel Ward. This group is expected to lead Cleveland to the franchise’s first playoff appearance since 2002 and end the NFL longest playoff drought.
