New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. may find himself in a world of trouble after this embarrassing video of him surfaced on Friday evening.
2017 was not a good year for the New York Giants. They went an atrocious 3-13 and finished with the second worst record in football. Their best player in star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a season-ending ankle injury in their Week 4 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
Beckham had been a Pro Bowler in his first three years out of LSU. When healthy, he is one of the three best wide receivers in the NFL. However, he might be finding himself in a world of trouble after this three-second video clip of him apparently in a hotel room surfaced on Friday evening.
It’s brief, but it’s to the point. The audio and video appears to show Beckham with a blunt in his left hand. He is lying on a bed, supposedly proposing that the girl next to him to have sex with another person in the same room off camera. This same girl looks to be cutting lines of cocaine with a credit card on a flat surface while sitting on the bed.
It’s clearly Beckham in this video, because of his signature haircut and beard combination. He’s obviously sitting on a bed with a cigarillo in his hand, but we can’t know what substance is in the blunt wrap for sure.
Yes, that’s definitely a miniature pepperoni pizza. It does sound like he is trying to get this girl to have sex with somebody else off camera. Again, we can’t certainly know what the white substance is that is being cut on a flat surface with an American Express card. Regardless, this is not a good look for him or the Giants organization.
See, Beckham wants to be the highest paid receiver in NFL history when he hits free agency next spring. New York obviously exercised his fifth-year option for 2018, given his elite on-field talent his first three years in the league. However, this video could be very damaging to his brand and reputation in the league.
Beckham is very popular among kids across the country. He is also one of the hardest wide receivers to game plan against in the NFL. When he hits that slant coming across the middle, Beckham can take it to the house more times than not. Obviously, the NFL will look into the authenticity of this video and act accordingly. Surely, more information will come out as this story develops. Just not a good look for Beckham in the slightest.
