5. Disarmed media
The media was ready to pounce on Beckham for missing OTAs, and OBJ was savvy in how he disarmed the media.
By the end of the presser, he had them eating out of his hand.
Beckham responded to missing OTAs by addressing how nobody knows better than himself how to get ready for the rigors of the NFL season.
"“I know my body better than anyone else. I know what it takes to get me in top physical condition, mental, all of those things. This isn’t my my first rodeo. This is not my first go-round. I just know what it takes to get there.”"
There was also a narrative running around Browns’ town that OBJ had left the Browns in the lurch during OTAs, that the organization had no idea whether or not he’d show up to practice.
He said that wasn’t the case, communicating that he was in regular contract with coach Freddie Kitchens.
With that said, it makes you wonder if the Browns really knew OBJ’s schedule, because if they had, it’d have been a lot easier to say he wouldn’t be in attendance.
His actual work on the field left the media without any rebuttals.as it was clear he had been watching film of what the Browns wanted him to work on. He ran the routes asked of him and looked like the OBJ who’s captivated so many.
