Things seem to off to a not so smooth start in Cleveland between new head coach Freddie Kitchens and the team’s newly acquired wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham’s decision to skip all but one of the Cleveland Browns’ OTA practices has not sat well with Kitchens.
In fact, Kitchens is so ticked off about Beckham’s absence that he once again took another swipe at Beckham during his media session with reporters on Thursday:
#Browns Freddie Kitchens says Odell Beckham Jr. has missed ‘a lot’ by skipping all but one OTA. Specifically ‘the offense.’ What would he like to see out of him next week? ‘I just want to see him’ https://t.co/vswqTuKUwf

Kitchens told reporters:
Asked what he wants to see of him next week in mandatory minicamp, Kitchens said, “I just want to see him.”
What did he miss?
“A lot — the offense.”
If Beckham and the Browns get off to a slow start, many will point to Beckham’s decision to not join the team during OTA’s as a reason why.
After all, there’s a lot of pressure on the Browns to deliver this year.
