"Everyone's always watching," he told reporters Tuesday. "If you don't have the same reaction that somebody may like, then a story or headline or whatever can be written about you. That's always tough, that's just the position I'm in. I've helped put myself in that position by some mistakes and a lot of by what I did on the field, all of the good things that I feel like we often forget about."
Beckham lacked vigor for much of the Week 1 shellacking and finished with just three catches for 22 yards. Despite his 10 targets. Cleveland struggled to get Beckham the ball - similar to what happened during the 2019 campaign.
Beckham's production has declined with the Browns following a megastar-level tenure with the New York Giants. He has had to deny rumors of unhappiness in Cleveland since being traded in March 2019.
"I'm just here at a point in my life where I just want to play football, I just want to win, period," he said according to Scott Petrak of Browns Zone.
"There's nothing else that can distract and deter me from those goals, and I think once I get you all, the world, everyone, to understand that I care about one thing, and that's winning and producing, I think that you'll be able to see some of the other actions and look at it from a different perspective than a perspective of a lot of the names and attachments that have been thrown off me, in a way."
Beckham and the Browns face the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football to begin Week 2.
