New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo made it clear – he’d really like wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to tone his emotions down after a bit of a mini tantrum last week in their loss to Washington.
Beckham was captured on the sideline tearing up and picking a unanticipated fight with with a kicker’s net, leading many to believe the young WR needs to toughen up a bit emotionally.
Reporters asked Beckham whether he’ll be changing his demeanor in light of McAdoo’s suggestion.
“Nah, I’m not really … I’m in a great place right now,” Beckham said, per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. “Mentally, physically, spiritually, there is not really much that bothers me at all, to be honest. So I’m going to go out and play football the only way I’ve ever known how to play, try my best to be the best teammate you possibly can.
“At the end of the day, you play for the guys that wear the jersey. They’re the ones who take the field with you, who you share the blood, sweat and tears with. I’m just going to go out and be who I am.”
