Odell Beckham Jr gets plenty of attention on the football field, but this time the NFL player is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. The New York Giants wide receiver was caught on camera holding what appeared to be a suspicious brown cigarette. Next to him was a woman holding what looked to be a credit card in her hand,
with a white substance in front of her. Beckham, 25, can be heard telling the woman 'Trying to get you to sleep with...', before the three-second clip cuts out. The pair appear to be sitting on a bed, with a medium-sized pepperoni pizza in front of them. It remains unknown who filmed the video, which leaked on Friday night, or when or where it was filmed. The New York Giants are aware of the video, according to the New York Daily News. Beckham, who suffered an ankle surgery during Week 5 of the NFL 2017 season, has been in Los Angeles undergoing rehabilitation and checking in with the team.
The video comes just hours after speculation began on just how much money the star player could earn after Mike Evans' historic contract with Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers player scored a five-year $82.5million contract with the Florida team, the highest a receiver has ever earned in league history, according to NorthJersey.com. Many speculated that Beckham, who will be paid $8.459million next year on his rookie contract, could receive as much as $100million with his next deal. It remains unknown how the video could affect his
asking price - if at all. But this isn't the first time Beckham has gotten into trouble. Beckham punched a hole in the wall outside a locker room at Lambeau Field after a 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He also reportedly banged his head against the wall in anger after the season-ending Wild Card playoff game. And just a week before that, Beckham banged his head into a door and screamed after the Giants' 19-24 loss to
the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16. It was reported that Beckham had to be escorted into the locker room by John Mara. He also angered the Giants' co-owner earlier this year when he pretended to pee like a dog while celebrating a
touchdown against the Eagles in September. 'What he did was completely unacceptable,' Mara said. 'I told him that in no uncertain terms'. Mara and the team have yet to issue a statement on Beckham's video and the player has not commented on it.
