Former LSU football wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr made it clear on Sunday that he has a lofty goal he wants to reach with the Cleveland Browns.

OBJ spoke to reporters on Sunday and he mentioned his desire to win a championship.

Of course, that’s something every team hopes to accomplish.

Beckham, however, believes there’s something special about the Browns entering the 2021 season.

Odell Beckham Jr sees something special in Cleveland

“There’s just something that feels special about this team,” said Beckham on Sunday (via Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot).

“I think there’s something special going on, something special with this city…Cleveland needs a championship,” added Beckham. “I think that’s the goal, that’s the mentality in the building and that’s what I want to be a part of.”

Beckham, who was traded by the New York Giants to the Browns before the 2019 season, played in only seven games last season.

The former Tigers standout tore his ACL in a week seven matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, forcing him to miss the final nine games of the season (Beckham also missed the Browns’ wild-card playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers).

Beckham caught 23 passes for 319 yards and three touchdowns in 2020.

For now, it’s unclear whether or not Beckham will be ready to go in week one.

“It’s whenever I’m ready to get out on the field, that’s when it will be,” said Beckham on Sunday. “Whenever the team, the docs, my team, everything gets cleared, we’ll be ready to go. So whenever that is, Week 1, Week 17, I don’t know. It’s just whenever we’re ready, we’ll be ready.”

While Beckham won’t commit to when he’ll be ready to hit the field, he at least gave Cleveland fans some encouraging news while discussing his recovery.

“Everything is feeling great. For being at the eight-and-a-half, nine-month mark, I’m doing very well in all our progressions,” said Beckham. “I can’t wait to be back and be able to do more football stuff.
