BEREA — Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. signaled Wednesday he'll be a part-time participant in the Browns' voluntary organized team activity practices.

After practicing with the Browns for the first time Tuesday, Beckham did not stay with the team in Berea for Wednesday's session, which is the first OTA of the offseason open to media.

The Browns knew Beckham would go back and forth from their headquarters during OTAs, so this is not a surprise.

Beckham reported to Browns headquarters Monday on the eve of OTAs. It was the first time he had visited the facility since April 1, when he showed up for the first day of the team’s voluntary offseason workout program and participated in his introductory news conference after being traded from the New York Giants in March.

Beckham has spent most of this offseason vacationing and training on his own. He skipped the extra voluntary minicamp the NFL granted the Browns because they have a new head coach, Freddie Kitchens. Beckham received criticism from some fans and media members for being a no-show, but Kitchens defended Beckham's absence from the April 23-25 minicamp.

Running back Duke Johnson remained absent from OTAs on Wednesday. It remains to be seen if he'll participate in any of the 10 OTA practices after his agent requested a trade in March. Johnson has yet to participate in the voluntary offseason workout program.

Receiver Jarvis Landry attended Tuesday and Wednesday's sessions but watched instead of practicing.

Receiver Rashard Higgins worked out a stationary bike Wednesday instead of practicing. Left tackle Desmond Harrison was not at practice.
