Beckham arrives in Cleveland with four career 1,000-yard receiving seasons.
Mayfield defended his current teammate, and former Giants wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr. in an interview with ESPN published Wednesday. "It's human nature to want to get revenge", the quarterback said. "He's here to play in front of fans who actually care, who will actually show up to every game and pack the stadium and love him for who he is".
Beckham made a name for himself in NY as arguably one of the best wideouts in the NFL.
Cleveland is not scheduled to play the Giants this year unless the two play one another in the Super Bowl. He caught 390 passes for 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns through 59 games during his Giants tenure. That resulted in a 38-13 Wild Card loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Mayfield's comments come after Beckham discussed the trade with Complex magazine last month. The Browns sent a pair of draft picks with safety Jabrill Peppers to secure the star pass-catcher, reuniting him with his college teammate and best friend, Jarvis Landry, and giving Mayfield a unsafe new weapon to work with.

Philippe Coutinho , Ousmane Dembele, Nelson Semedo, Ivan Rakitic, Malcom, and an unnamed player. But one thing is concrete today: he still has three years of contract with us.
In April, Colin Cowherd of Fox Sports claimed that sources told him that Beckham was actually unhappy. The list goes on, and Giants fans still supported him and his long-term deal he received prior to 2018.
After an offseason to reflect on those criticisms, Mayfield stands by his choices.
"I hated speaking in front of people", Mayfield said.
"I had never gone through a rookie season before, but I'm pretty sure that's not exactly how it's supposed to go", Mayfield said. "I remember hearing the rumors and stuff going back and forth".
Mayfield told Kimes that he no longer keeps track of all the slights reporters and others write or say about him like he once did, saying at some point he has to find his own motivation.
