BEREA, OH – Odell Beckham Jr.'s disappointing first season with the Browns isn't even over, and the star wide receiver is already making predictions about the next one.

“2020’s going to be my year," he said.

He didn't say if it would be in Cleveland.

Beckham was vague about his future on Thursday during a post-practice interview session in which he discussed his maturity as a person and player and the Browns' growing pains amid unfulfilled expectations.

However, Beckham, who has not had the impact he or the Browns (5-7) had hoped, wouldn't squelch rumors that he might not be with the team on a long-term basis.

Asked if he wanted to be with Cleveland next season, Beckham, who is under contract through 2023, gave a muddled answer.

“No one knows what the future holds tomorrow," he said. “I couldn’t tell you what’s going to happen. My locker is right beside one of the men (teammate Jarvis Landry) that means the most to me in the world. I think about just being able to come to work and see him every single day and how special this could be. I couldn’t sit here and tell you whether I’m going to be here, want to be here, don’t want to be here — this is exactly where I’m at now and I wouldn’t rather be anywhere else.

“In the offseason, everything will figure itself out. I feel like I’ve been here before, answering questions about the next team when I’m on a team already. That’s just something I’m going to tune out for right now. Catch me in the offseason, and we’ll see what happens. I don’t know God’s plan.”
