Josh Norman Laughs Off Odell Beckham Jr.’s Claims That He Made Him ‘Relevant’
You knew eventually word would get back to Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman on what New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had to say about him recently.
In an interview for the August 2016 edition of GQ, Beckham shared his opinion about Norman signing with the Redskins:
“If I wasn’t playing him twice a year, maybe people wouldn’t bring it up as much,” Beckham said. “But now it’ll be a lot more media attention for him, attention that I don’t really look for, attention that I don’t need. The reason that he’s become so relevant is because of me.”
On Thursday, according to Scott Allen of the Washington Post, Norman was asked to respond to the comments and he had this to say:
“I don’t even know how you respond to that other than laugh,” he said. “I don’t know what you get out of that. I don’t know, man. There’s a time when people who honor themselves will fall short, so when that day comes, we’ll just see.”
I think Norman is ready for the season.
