4. Cleveland Browns coach Kevin Stefanski

If given the choice, I wonder if Kevin Stefanski would take Beckham back.

The head coach comes from the school of analytics and Beckham checks all the boxes. Plus, he’s watching the game film and sees the video of his receiver running open and his quarterback not getting the ball.

But with the report that Beckham was running his own route at times and not sticking to the script, Stefanski’s offense should get back on track.

Baker Mayfield isn’t made to sit in the pocket and wait for things to unfold. The Browns are built on timing, rhythm and getting the ball out of the quarterback’s hands on a high-percentage throw.

Considering what ESPN’s Jake Trotter reporter, it was like the Browns were playing down a wideout with Beckham on the field. Mayfield was looking for him to be in one spot, but Beckham couldn’t be found because he broke off a route in hopes Mayfield would find him streaking downfield wide open.

Give Stefanski’s offense another receiver that the quarterback can actually utilize, and well, you don’t need to be a senior analytics employee to know that the Browns will have a better chance.
