Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are having trouble getting theirs in Cleveland, but as we learned this week from NFL Films, Baker Mayfield is trying to keep their heads in the game and what the Browns — over .500 for the first time since December 2014 — are building in 2020.
“I love you boys. Be patient. I love you,” Mayfield said to the receiver after throwing a fourth-quarter touchdown to Harrison Bryant in Sunday’s 34-20 win over the Washington Football Team.
Beckham is currently tied for 61st in the NFL with 11 catches. His 155 yards is good for 48th in the NFL. Landry — 12 catches, 143 yards — is in the same neighborhood as Beckham.
“Yeah, of course [it was appreciated],” Landry said, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “He has awareness. He understands just as well I am sure as everybody on this call or everybody that watches our games understands, guys want the ball. There’s no question about that.”
Beckham, who played on one winning team over his first six seasons, appears to be jumping on the team-first bandwagon – for now. Landry has one winning season on his resume too.
“We’re just finding ways to win right now, to be honest,” Beckham said. “It is like you play basketball and someone is right-handed and you can’t force them to go left. Why would you even go left? That is what I always say. We are just doing what works right now and what is getting us wins.”
In case you forgot, @bakermayfield really likes playing football.
