Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants is a very good football player and had a phenominal rookie year, but is he getting too cocky? Beckham Jr. first said last week that football players deserve to be paid more, and now he tells opposing teams to not double team him because it won’t work.
“I definitely expect to receive a lot more attention,” Beckham said Wednesday, via NJ.com’s Jordan Raanan. “But it’s just not going to work.” “You know you have Vic and Reuben, it’s going to be hard to double or have a safety over the top with the stuff that we have going on,” Beckham said. “I don’t think it’s going to be beneficial for them.”
Beckham’s 606 yards in December were the most by any rookie in one calendar month. Many will try to contain Beckham, but if they do Rueben Randle and Vic Cruz might eat, so he might be right.
