It is well documented that Odell Beckham Jr. Cleveland Browns’ experiment at Believeland ended up being flammable.

The Los Angeles Rams’ newest wide receiver, however, took to Twitter on Saturday evening, November 13th, to announce that not everything about the Cleveland tenure was filled with bitterness in his own penmanship.

Beckham wrote a thank you to the organization and the city that gave him a new home after he left the New York Giants.

Beckham Jr., who will start for the Rams on Monday, November 15th, especially after Robert Woods ruptured the cruciate ligament on Friday, began his letter by addressing Cleveland with “Believeland.”

“So much emotion rushes through me as I begin the next chapter of my journey,” Beckham begins.

Then he constructed his next sentence by writing, “I want to thank the City of Cleveland for welcoming me with open arms.” His next set plunged into his desire to bring the city a championship when he became Cleveland Brown.

Again, Beckham’s Browns career never really saw the flash or dominance it displayed when he entered the league from LSU. After three Pro Bowl appearances as Giant, Beckham produced only one 1,000 yard season as Brown: his first season with the team in 2019, which saw only 1,035 yards and 4 touchdowns. Beckham then dealt with end-of-season injuries and high-profile rifts between him and the Browns franchise. Beckham never caught more than 25 catches following its 74 reception campaign in 2019.

However, the turbulent experience didn’t stop him from thanking the fans.

“With all the ups and downs, injuries and rehab, I am forever grateful to have played in front of some of the greatest fans of all time,” wrote Beckham. “Dawg pound, thank you for hugging me and showing me so much love!”

From there he thanked Jimmy and Dee Haslem, the front office, the coaching staff and his now former Browns teammates.

You can read the full letter below:

With a hoodie covering his purple hair, Beckham Jr. described the “whirlwind” he endured in his first press conference with the LA media since joining the Rams in the past few days.

“A whirlwind of emotions,” he began. “Sometimes it doesn’t work out in life and you know that in the moment it’s always scary when you take such a leap of faith and you just trust God’s plan. You always take one step in front of the other and just go forward in faith. “

However, Beckham adds that he is blessed to be a ram and to have his latest NFL start with a 7-2 team leading the league with average yards per pass.

“This is a great team, 7-2, they have a great opportunity to do some great things and I just want to be a part of it,” said Beckham.

Although he has changed his address before, this is a very different situation for Beckham. Then add that Woods’ devastating injury makes Beckham the official starter for the Monday Night Football competition against the San Francisco 49ers. But on a day he was contemplating his tenure at Browns, Beckham announced that he was coming out as Ram.

“I take it minute by minute and hour by hour,” Beckham said. “I’ve never been to another team in the middle of the season. I just have to be a professional in this situation and find ways to acclimate myself and finish the moves and everything as quickly as possible and do my best to help this team win. ”
