Odell Beckham Jr. hasn't given us any reason to believe that he's finished bashing his former team. Roughly a month after claiming that the New York Giants impaired his mental health, the All-Pro wideout is back slighting the G-Men.
OBJ was the feature cover for this week's edition of the renowned GQ Magazine and he did not shy away while answering questions directed towards his former franchise.
Where Odell took exceptional exception was due to the fact that the Giants didn't make him aware of his trade to Cleveland in a face-to-face manner.
Perhaps Beckham's most telling quote in the feature came when he dissected how he learned of the trade to the Browns. Keep in mind that the superstar wideout was on vacation in Paris when the deal came to fruition.
“I felt disrespected. This team has not been good for the last six years. Period. It’s just all bad. I felt like I was a main reason at keeping that brand alive. They were getting prime-time games, still, as a 5-11 team. Why? Because people want to see the show," Beckham continued. "You want to see me play … I felt disrespected they weren’t even man enough to even sit me down to my face and tell me what’s going on."
We would normally throw a healthy dose of critique Beckham's way after comments like this. But, he kind of has a stout point here.
Sure, he was a headache (at times). But there's no doubting that he was the poster child of the Big Apple before the blockbuster transaction.
The Giants, whether they like to admit it or not, are in the midst of a rebuild and simply did wrong by Odell for the duplicitous fashion in which they pulled the strings. If not for his all-time great talent, MetLife Stadium wouldn't have been nearly as filled during home games over the last couple of seasons.
