Odell Beckham Jr. Wants To Become NFL's Highest Paid Player 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 28, 2017 12:56 pm

Odell Beckham Jr. wants to become the NFL's highest-paid player regardless of position.

"It's like the elephant in the room, and you don't want to talk about it," Beckham says in the video. "But I've gotten to the point in my life where I'm like, 'No, I'm going to ... there's no need to not talk about it.

"I believe that I will be hopefully not just the highest-paid receiver in the league, but the highest-paid, period."

Beckham is to make $1.8 million this season. He is set to make over $10 million this year in endorsements separate from his football income, including $5.8 million from his newly-signed Nike deal.

Beckham is scheduled to be paid $8.459 million in the fifth year of his rookie contract, a figure well below other top wide receivers. Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown recently signed a new deal worth $17 million per season.

OBJ is a delusional self-absorbed good not great NFL player.

I'll up it to very good as his greatness is yet to be determined.

Is he worthy of being the highest paid player though? Not even close.

He's top 10 in the league with all positions. I'm gong to assume your lost. College football page is a few tabs over.

Odell Backham wants to make sure the Giants don't plan on drafting another good WR because he's already thinking how to be a diva and self-centered.

4,122 receiving yards and 35 TDs in his first three seasons, he's been great.
