Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is laughing off reports that his trade to the Ohio team from the New York Giants was due to him being a “culture problem.” Just yesterday we reported on Giants General Manager David Gettleman’s interview with NJ.com where he alluded to OBJ’s head-scratching trade that left sports fans stunned.
“I think some people are still missing it,” Gettleman said. “Football is the ultimate team game. If all 11 guys aren’t doing the right thing, you’re not going to be successful. There’s more to it than just collecting talent. There is a cultural thing to it that’s critical. I have not been on a team that’s gone to a Super Bowl that’s had a culture problem.” When asked if a culture problem is what the Giants had, Gettleman reportedly stated, “Not anymore.”
Beckham wasn’t offended by the statements, but he took to Twitter to share that they did make him chuckle by retweeting our report. “???? this was by far one of the funniest things I’ve seen today!” he wrote.
He returned later to tweet, “LISTEN PSA…. I am having one of the best days of my life ! I have gotten some of the greatest newssss!! Sooo don’t play wit me cause I’m shoootin back, for alllll the haters out there that want a response !! TODAY IS THE DAY MY FRIEND.” When a fan tried to tell him not to rule out returning to the Giants while sharing their hopes for him to retire with the New York team, he shut down those dreams by simply stating, “It won’t happen.
OBJ also took some time to chit-chat with fans who had criticisms over Gettleman’s comments. “I gave them everything I had bruh bruh errr Sunday,” he tweeted. “Just put some respect on my name that’s all I’m sayin! I ain’t sayin nothin, n trust me I got a LOTTTTT of info that people don’t kno about so, so keep my name outcha mouth the way I do yalls ! Ya diggg.” He ended things by writing, “Ok I’m done !!! Prayers up for changes for all the people out there that aren’t happy with where they are at today !!! Spread love everywhere u can! Back to these workouts ???? blesssss.”
