Wearing a sleeveless, skirted tuxedo to a black-tie event wasn’t even the most ridiculous thing associated with Odell Beckham on Monday.

Beckham, the former All Pro wide receiver who was traded from the New York Giants to the Cleveland Browns earlier this spring, set some lofty expectations for his new team during an interview with GQ magazine.

“I plan on being (in Cleveland) for the next five years and trying to bring as many championships there as possible,” Beckham told GQ, “turning (the Browns) into the new Patriots.”

That would be the New England Patriots, the franchise that has won six of the past 18 Super Bowls.

And that would be the Cleveland Browns, the franchise that has zero playoff appearances over the past 16 seasons and has won 11 GAMES over the past four seasons.

Beckham wore the outfit to the 2019 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
