The Giants may have only gotten to the playoffs just once with Odell Beckham Jr. on the team, but Browns tight end David Njoku believes the former Big Blue receiver may be the missing piece to take the Browns to the next level.
"Once we realized we had him locked in, we're excited," Njoku said at a football camp he runs in Cedar Grove, NJ, per NJ.com. "We have a great team. It's up to us to take advantage of this opportunity."
Njoku, who was a rookie during the winless 0-16 season in 2017, began seeing a shift in the Browns culture last season with Baker Mayfield at quarterback and other new offensive weapons, such as Jarvis Landry and Nick Chubb to help lead the team to a 7-8-1 season.
With Beckham aboard, Njoku understands the expectations are higher and believes the team will make a big impact. Just how big?
"I know what you want to hear," he said. "We are trying to do what we can to go all the way, which is indeed go to the Super Bowl."
Beckham's presence on the Giants did not necessarily translate into more wins, though. The team made the postseason just once during Beckham's tenure, and with the addition of Saquon Barkley last year, the Giants managed to win just five games, although Beckham missed four games due to injury.
The star receiver has also been absent from most of the Browns' voluntary workouts, but Njoku said that Beckham has had no problem fitting in.
"Phenomenal, really," he said. "He's a great teammate and a great person. We all know what he brings to the table. He makes crazy plays and we're excited to have him on the team."
