Beckham holding out hope Browns can be 'wildest wild card'

It's been a disappointing season for the Cleveland Browns and Odell Beckham Jr., but the receiver believes it could still end positively for both.

The 5-7 club holds an outside shot at making the postseason, and the wideout hopes Cleveland can capitalize.

"I just care about winning and hopefully getting a shot to go to the playoffs. The wildest wild card or whatever. If they just let us in there, that's the goal," he said on Thursday.

As far as his own production is concerned, Beckham is in the midst of the worst statistical campaign of his six-year career. He topped 1,300 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons, and the veteran eclipsed 1,000 yards despite playing in just 12 games last year with the New York Giants.

In 2019, he's been held to 57 catches for 805 yards and just two touchdowns.

"Imma get 1,000 yards," Beckham said. "And this is a bad year. This is what I tell people. When we talk about 1,000 yards, that's the minimum. That's the starting point."
