Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry not only believes teammate Odell Beckham Jr. will successfully recover from a torn ACL, but he's optimistic Beckham will return in an improved form.

"He's even better than he was last year," Landry said of Beckham before the former's celebrity softball game Saturday, according to the Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich.

Landry and Beckham were among multiple Browns players who worked out with quarterback Baker Mayfield in Texas this past week.

"(Beckham) looked amazing," Landry added, according to's Mary Kay Cabot. "I can't wait for you guys to see him. I can't wait for him to get back out there."

"... He's already doing some things that will blow your mind away," he continued.

Beckham underwent surgery last November to repair a torn ACL suffered during a game in October. The 28-year-old is expected to be on the field for Cleveland's season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 12, according to Cabot.

The three-time Pro Bowler - who topped 1,000 receiving yards during his first year with the Browns in 2019 - was held to 23 catches, 319 yards, and three touchdown grabs over seven appearances last season. Beckham has now failed to receive a Pro Bowl nod in each of the past four campaigns.

Landry and Beckham, who have been playing together in Cleveland since the 2019 season, also shared the field at LSU.
