Hopefully for the long suffering Cleveland Browns fanbase, this is the first of many. It took a while, but Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham Jr. finally hooked up for their first touchdown together in orange and brown.

It’s in shirts and sweatpants, granted, but it’s still a tantalizing glimpse at what could be in Freddie Kitchens’ offense this season.
With Mayfield fresh off a year in which he broke Peyton Manning’s record for rookie touchdown passes, he has already been showing off the accuracy and arm talent he’s known for at Browns minicamp.

It took Odell a while before he joined up with his new team at minicamp, but that hasn’t blunted the excitement that his arrival has brought to the franchise. In a Todd Monken scheme that likes to throw the ball deep downfield and led the league in passing yards with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston at the helm, the Baker-OBJ combo could be lethal in short order.

For the first time since Brian Sipe was around, there is genuine excitement in Cleveland. Hopefully all this hype translates into Ws once the regular season comes around.
