His career started with injuries but took a positive turn later in the season when during the finale against the Philadelphia Eagles, Beckham had a career-high 185 receiving yards, which was the most in a game by a rookie in franchise history. After completing 5 seasons with the club, he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the 2019 NFL draft. After undergoing major surgery and repeated injuries, Beckham was released by the club in 2021 after having played intermittently over three seasons. In November 2021 Beckham signed a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Rams.

Odell Beckham Jr. NFL Journey

While playing for the New York Giants in the first five seasons of his NFL career, OBJ had to overcome several injuries to shine in the first three seasons with the club. On the basis of sheer talent he recorded 91 receptions, 1305 yards and 12 touchdowns in his first season. It was in this season, while playing against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football, that OBJ had 10 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns which included the well-known one-handed touchdown referred to as the “catch of the year” in popular media. He made this catch while diving backwards with his right hand fully extended, using a three-finger grip. He had been named as the first-alternate in the year’s Pro Bowl and was the first rookie wide receiver of the Giants in the history of the franchise to have played in the Pro Bowl, after Calvin Johnson had to be replaced owing to an injury. In his next season, Odell Beckham Jr. recorded 96 receptions, 1,450 yards, and 13 touchdowns. It was his most productive season in the league, recording season highs in yards and touchdowns. In his third season, he recorded a season-high of 101 receptions while adding 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns. During the 2017 season, the wide receiver suffered a fractured left ankle. He suffered a fractured left ankle in Week 5 of the regular season and was limited, recording only 25 receptions for 302 yards and three touchdowns. The next season, OBJ recorded 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns.

Odell Beckham Jr. joined the Cleveland Browns in 2019. The team acquired him from the New York Giants on 13th March, 2019, for Jabrill Peppers, Kevin Zeitler, and the Browns’ first- and third-round picks in the 2019 NFL draft. He saw his best success with the Browns in the first season of the two-and-a-half he spent in Cleveland. He recorded 74 receptions, 1,035 yards, and four receiving touchdowns. In 2020, he played in seven games before tearing his ACL in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Before his season ended, he recorded only 23 receptions for 319 yards and three touchdowns. He recorded 17 receptions for 232 yards and zero touchdowns in the last six games that he played for Cleveland.

Odell Beckham Jr. Teams

New York Giants (2014-2018)

It was Beckham’s tenure with the Giants that made him one of the most recognizable names in professional sports, with the receiver rewriting the NFL record books, recording 390 receptions, 5,476 receiving yards and 44 touchdowns in five seasons with the Giants. He finished the final season with 77 receptions, 1,052 yards, six touchdowns, and threw two passes for touchdowns. He was ranked 23rd by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2019. However his career trajectory was not always smooth during his tenure at the club. In the third season, for instance, he had been fined $12,154 in the first week itself due to a dance-celebration of the club’s victory against the Cowboys. He was fined yet again in the following week for- $36,000 for a blindside hit on safety Kenny Vaccaro while playing for the Giants against the New Orleans Saints. It is noteworthy though that in this season (2015) he reached the target of 200 receptions in only 30 games, being the fastest player to achieve the target. In his final season with the Giants, OBJ became the first non-quarterback with multiple passing touchdowns in a season since Antwaan Randle El in 2010.

Cleveland Browns (2019-2021)

Beckham had a tumultuous journey while playing for the Browns. His first season began well when during the second week itself, while playing against the New York Jets, Beckham finished with 161 receiving yards, including a one-handed grab for 33 yards and later, an 89-yard touchdown as the Browns won 23-3 in his first game back at MetLife Stadium since being traded. He was involved in a number of controversies in the following weeks as he threw a punch at Ravens’ cornerback Marlon Humphrey who then responded by choking Beckham. Both the players were then fined $14,037 for their actions. Despite having to battle a sports hernia and undergo a core muscle surgery in the beginning of the following year, Beckham shone in the second season with the Browns by surpassing 1,000 receiving yards on the season for the fifth time in his career while playing against the Cincinnati Bengals in the 17th week of the season. In the following season(2020) he led the Browns towards victory against the Dallas Cowboys by making a rushing touchdown after which he was unfortunately placed on injured reserve due to a torn ACL.
