CLEVELAND — Lest you believe this entire offseason has all been a dream, Odell Beckham Jr. is in fact a member of the Cleveland Browns.
And hours before he was set to make his debut with his new team, the 3-time Pro Bowl receiver arrived at FirstEnergy Stadium -- and per usual, did so in fashion.
While Cleveland may not quite be New York, Beckham was still greeted by a paparazzi-like throng of reporters and cameras waiting to capture his arrival. And to his credit, the 2014 NFL Rookie of the Year didn't disappoint, as he donned a stylish designer shirt-shorts combo, along with a Louis Vuitton handbag and water jug.
Beckham's 10:30 a.m. arrival came approximately two and a half hours before his Browns debut was scheduled to kickoff. At 1 p.m. ET, Cleveland will host the Tennessee Titans in what marks the franchise's most highly anticipated season opener since returning to the NFL in 1999.
Coming off a 7-8-1 season in which rookie Baker Mayfield emerged as a franchise quarterback, expectations for the Browns will already high entering the 2019 campaign. The hype surrounding the team, however, got taken to another level in March, when Cleveland acquired Beckham in a blockbuster deal with the New York Giants.
Over the course of his first five seasons with the Giants, the 26-year-old Beckham established himself as one of the NFL's most dynamic receivers. To this point in his career, he's totaled 390 receptions, 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns, including 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and 6 touchdowns in 12 games in 2018.
