Odell Beckham Jr. "not where he's going to be," says John Harbaugh

The Baltimore Ravens kicked off Day 2 of their training camp at the Under Armour Performance Center on Thursday under pretty hot weather. But do you know who really brought the heat? Odell Beckham Jr., that's who.

Beckham spoke to the media after the practice, and he told reporters watching live on location that "there is no real limitations" to his practices nor schedule at the Ravens camp this summer, as quoted by Jamison Hensley of ESPN.

"It’s just about knowing every detail of the playbook--it’s just Day 2," OBJ said about some of the rustiness he's experienced on the training field the last few days. "Once you know every single thing, you could play fast. I could just feel myself wanting to continue to learn, continue to find something to get better at."

Beckham said that he "doenn’t know percentages," but he made clear that "I just feel good."

That might not align with the feelings of HC John Harbaugh, who was quoted after practice saying the veteran receiver is "definitely not where he’s going to be," before adding that "you could see the step from minicamp, so that was a good step in the right direction."

It's worth remembering that OBJ is coming off an 18-month rehabilitation process following an injury suffered in the Super Bowl game held in February 2022 when he was a member of the Los Angeles Rams.

Prior to spring, Beckham had not stepped onto any gridiron field to test himself even in soft training practices, so this training camp (as well as the minicamp held a few weeks ago) is the true real test OBJ is putting himself up to after signing his one-year, $15 million deal with Baltimore earlier this offseason.

So far, so good for Beckham and the rest of the Ravens contingent as they couldn't have kicked the pre-season off in higher spirits and bringing more hype to the table with nearly all players (barring J.K. Dobbins and Rashod Bateman) available and willing to make a deep postseason run in 2023.
