Odell Beckham Jr. Defends Emotional Outbursts With Comparison to Lawrence Taylor


Last December, the sports world saw a side to New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. that they hadn’t seen before when he matched up against Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman and the two went on a personal foul fest resulting in fines and suspensions.

Last Sunday, Odell’s emotions were once again on display after he made some spectacular plays to get his team in scoring position, only to watch QB Eli Manning throw an interception. Beckham completely lost his mind on the sideline as he physically abused a kicking net that hit him right back in the face.

On Saturday, Beckham took to Instagram to defend his emotional outbursts by comparing them with another New York Giants legend, Lawrence Taylor, who was known for losing his mind everywhere on the field of play.


My imperfections are what make me Me. Blessed to be chosen.
