Odell Beckham Jr., who joined the Baltimore Ravens a few months ago by signing a humongous $15 million deal with the Flock, is about to experience something new on Sunday if all goes according to plan: going against his former team for the first time since he left Cleveland in 2021.
Beckham was released by the Browns on November 8, 2021, and he missed the Week 4 matchup between the Ravens and the Elves because he suffered an injury leaving him out of that contest and preventing him from enjoying a sweet revenge victory.
Speaking on Thursday, OBJ said this game is not "another game to [him]," but he is not just looking for revenge as many might have thought. "It will be fun to go against these guys who are friends and brothers of mine," Beckham said. "Definitely no animosity on my end for sure. A lot of love and respect."
OBJ spent over two years in Cleveland before getting released by the Browns with the franchise stating "We've just reached a point where it is best that we move forward as a team without Odell."
Following that cut, Beckham signed with the Los Angeles Rams... and the rest is (Super Bowl) history.
Beckham also made history with the Ravens last weekend in Baltimore as he finally grabbed a pass for a touchdown, his first since joining the Flock last spring. It took some time (and Tyler Huntley passing him the ball), but he finally broke for the first of (we hope) many touchdowns scored while clad in Purple and White threads.
Beckham stayed level-headed after scoring his first TD, however: "It does feel good. I worked very hard just to be able to get back on the field just to make a catch."
Added Beckham: "The goal was always to be able to score touchdowns but at the same time keeping the mindset that it's one week and finding ways to get better."
This might not be the proverbial "Revenge Game" for him, but OBJ will surely enjoy keeping the scoring streak going whether that's against the Browns or any other team that dares defend him.
