CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - One thing you won’t have to worry about with Odell Beckham Jr. is his desire to win.

The 26-year-old is arguably the most notable player in the league, but he’ll give it all up for the chance at a Super Bowl ring.

“I’d much rather be in the playoffs then go for 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns," Beckham said to the media following Wednesday’s practice.

The wideout suited up for the third time since his arrival to Cleveland and he looked sharp.

Here he is lined up against cornerback Denzel Ward who nearly picked off the ball on this play.

It might’ve been a hold but Beckham loved the young defensive back’s enthusiasm.

"We’re all a bunch of young guys who are hungry, Beckham said.

“I don’t even get so much stuck on the run, I just see the potential of this team.”

Last month he made headlines when he expressed his wish to make the Browns the New England Patriots.

He backed up that talk on Wednesday.

“Who wouldn’t aspire to be the Patriots? Who wouldn’t want to be an 11-5, 12-4 team, win their division and go to the Super Bowl, Beckham said.

Tomorrow is the Browns’ last day of minicamp, the next glimpse of the team will be in training camp, starting July 26.
