Beckham: Browns have 'something special going on'
"I think there's something special going on and something special with this city," the wide receiver said Sunday during his youth football camp.
Beckham added: "Cleveland needs a championship. And I think that's the goal and mentality in that building, and that's what I want to be a part of."
The Browns earned their first playoff berth since 2002 last year, but Beckham's season ended prematurely after he suffered a knee injury in Week 7. Cleveland beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild-card game before losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in the next round.
"I watched them compete last year, and the one game that hurt me the most was watching Kansas City," Beckham said. "I know I could've made one play, just something to help the team."
Head coach Kevin Stefanski said Beckham looked good on the field after returning to practice as a limited participant last month. The three-time Pro Bowler is now waiting to be full go.
"At this point, we're just running our race," Beckham said. "I feel like in the past, I've been caught up in this question. I'm not really here for it anymore. Whenever I'm ready to get out on the field, that's when it will be. Whenever the team, the docs, my team, everything gets cleared, we'll be ready to go."
Cleveland will kick off its 2021 campaign against the Chiefs on Sept. 12.
