We all know that Odell Beckham Jr. has has become a volatile personality during his time with the New York Giants. It has led to the team potentially looking to trade the Pro Bowl receiver.
As rumors of a deal continue to heat up, Beckham took time out of his day to respond to a comment from Pittsburgh Steelers running back claiming that “it’s so hard to be a hero in a city that paints you out to be a villain.”
While those in the social media world were not kind to Bell’s comments, OBJ himself seemed to back up his fellow Pro Bowler. All the while, the enigmatic receiver doubled down on the idea that he, too, might be viewed as a villain in New York City.
Notice how former Pittsburgh Steelers pass rusher James Harrison also responded? Given how his career with the Steelers came to an end, that has to be seen as some major shade being thrown in the direction of his former organization.
As it relates to OBJ, it’s pretty clear that he’s concluding those in New York also see him as a villain. It’s not the first time he has talked publicly about the recent trade rumors, even if it just came in the form of three words.
We have no idea whether Beckham will be traded before the start of the 2018 season. What we do know is that Pittsburgh handed Bell the franchise tag earlier in the offseason. He’s now planning on holding out throughout training camp.
Welcome to the drama-filled world of the NFL offseason, ladies and germs.
