Odell Beckham Jr. Skips OTAs To Hang Out With Iggy Azalea

While Beckham told NFL Network that he "loves" his team and is "excited about the season", he said no comment when asked if he would be attending future OTAs.

According to MSN, the National Football League star blew off his third consecutive OTA on Wednesday, opting instead to catch passes from Johnny Manziel, the party boy who got himself cut from the Cleveland Browns.

Beckham has not been with the Giants this week for the first three voluntary OTA workouts. He told Jones he will be there for those workouts, which may also present an opportunity to hear his thoughts about a new contract.

"It's a time to build fundamentals, communication, chemistry, and trust. So, you want all your players here, especially your great ones who facilitate that for you, but you coach who's here". Additional reports suggested he would return to East Rutherford on either Wednesday or Thursday, but as his teammates returned to the field today, Beckham was once again a no-show.

The Giants 2014 first-round pick recorded the third most receiving yards (1,367) in the National Football League last season, and has two years remaining on his rookie contract after NY picked up his fifth-year option this offseason.


"We know those guys are very talented, and we know this is business, and we know they're out there working, and it's not a big concern for the team", cornerback Janoris Jenkins said. Beckham Jr. isn't obligated in any way to be with his teammates right now. "He's not here, but when he comes back, we're gonna welcome him back like he's been here". I'm sure they're not here just because they just didn't feel like coming. I just thought, yeah, he has Eli Manning and they are throwing the ball to him every single time, of course he is going to catch the ball.

"They have some valid reasons why they're not here".

"He is probably the best athlete that I have ever seen", Marshall said.

"I'm not a flawless guy, but I worked extremely hard to get into the position that I am in today", Marshall said.
