OTA’s are horrible for veterans, but they are important for new coaches and new teams that are trying to implement a new system. Odell Beckham Jr. and the Browns are a new marriage, and the Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens wants to see Odell soon.
When asked what Beckham has missed by skipping out on all but one OTA, Kitchens quipped, “A lot — the offense,” according to Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot.
The Browns’ offseason training is not mandatory but they will hold another session on June 4-6 with a mandatory minicamp. Kitchens was asked what he would like to see out of Beckham those three days.
“I just want to see him,” he responded.
It sounds like the Browns head coach is pumped to see what he has in his new weapon, especially considering that Jarvis Landry is out with an injury. Landry has been absent from OTAs while nursing a minor injury, and his further absence will just be precautionary, according to the Browns. There appears to be no real concern surrounding whatever issue is bothering the wideout.
I do not think they have to worry about Odell, the guy stays in shape.
