The Facts: In the eyes of Beckham, optimism reigns as the Kevin Stefanski era begins in Cleveland. With talented teammate and close friend Jarvis Landry and he leading the Browns receiving corps, Beckham has seen what the Vikings' receiving tandem of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen did with Stefanski navigating the offense and finds promise in what the future may bring. "These are people who I've watched closely on their film," Beckham said of the Minnesota wideouts, "and just seeing the things that he did and meeting him and seeing where his mind's at for Jarvis and myself of how this will all work out, I have a good feeling about it, you know?"
Diehards Line: While Landry had another Pro Bowl campaign in 2019 with 83 receptions, 1,174 yards and six touchdowns, Beckham's much-publicized productivity was among the lowest it had been in his sterling six-season career during a full season. He had 74 grabs, 1,035 yards and four touchdowns. A good season, but not the excellence OBJ has become accustomed to produce. Beckham's planning on that changing with Stefanski as he and Landry look to replicate -- or perhaps better -- the production of the Diggs-Thielen combo. "I think that's the plan," Beckham said of matching the Thielen-Diggs role, "and I'm hoping that that's the game plan."
