Odell Beckham Jr. Creating Controversy Over a Watch Proves He's a Liability in Every Way

I guess Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is jealous of all the attention Antonio Brown has received for all his drama.

On Sunday, Beckham decided to wear a $350,000 watch during the game, which is a violation of league rules. Even though the NFL doesn't want him to wear it again, OBJ has no plans of removing the ridiculously expensive watch, which is also for sure a hindrance on the field of play.

Anything for the brand, we guess.

Beckham doesn't see the problem, and says that if someone like Tom Brady was wearing it, it wouldn't be an issue. So, because he believes, without any proof, that someone else would get away with it, this should be allowed?

Seems, though, that it likely would be brought up because it's against league rules. Who cares if you like it or not? Why are you making a mountain out of molehill?

Also, uh...you're a very disappointing 0-1? This should not be the focus.

The Browns have only played one game, during which they were blown out by the Titans by 30 at home, and OBJ is already creating problems and becoming a liability. It's amazing, but he's playing the victim card simply because he can't do whatever he wants. Is that the kind of leadership you want from one of your best players?

Just when you think the Browns are going to be a big-time team, one of their best players creates a distraction that has nothing to do with football. Have fun with that, Cleveland.
