OBJ is ready to win some championships in Cleveland.
Back in March, Odell Beckham Jr. was traded to the Cleveland Browns in a shocking move that had New York Giants fans both sad and confused. The trade was one that many who were close to the team saw coming as OBJ just wasn't gelling with the higher-ups of the team anymore. Now though, Beckham Jr. seems happier than ever to be a part of a squad that not only wants him but has quite a bit of talent that could translate in a potential playoff birth.
"I plan on being there for the next five years and trying to bring as many championships there as possible," Beckham said. "Turning [the Browns] into the new Patriots."

The Browns wide receiver also had praise for quarterback Baker Mayfield who will be slinging passes to OBJ this season. Mayfield was one of the frontrunners for the Rookie of the Year award last year thanks to his dominant play.
"I would say he's next, but I feel like he's now," Beckham said. "He's Brett Favre - he's going to be a Hall of Famer."
OBJ also explained that he's happier than ever and that his move from New York was a good thing as they just weren't a good fit anymore.
