Odell Beckham Complains on Instagram After NFL Fines Him for Illegal Pants

Once again, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham is in hot water with the NFL thanks to... yes, his wardrobe choices.

After earning himself a fine for rocking some ungodly expensive watches on the field, OBJ was once again fined for his fashion choices in Week 7. This time, he earned a $14,000 slap on the wrist for wearing his pants above the knee during the Browns' loss against the Seattle Seahawks. Beckham was furious about the penalty, posting the letter the league sent him on his Instagram story.

Are the NFL's uniform and equipment rules sometimes a bit on the draconian side, and even a bit hard to understand? Certainly. Does that excuse Odell or anyone else from following them? Of course not.

I hate to be that guy, but the Browns are 2-4 and have the Patriots, currently in the middle of taking the Jets apart limb from limb, on deck next. The Browns, and Odell especially, have much bigger problems to worry about than how high one can or cannot wear his trousers.
