Holding out the last thing on Odell Beckham’s mind

Holding out the last thing on Odell Beckham’s mind

Odell Beckham Jr. is taking a different approach in his want for a better deal, while others in similar situations prefer the ‘hold out’ route…

“I don’t have time [to hold out],” Beckham said Friday, per ESPN. “I’m 24 years old. I’m trying to play football until I can’t play football anymore. I can’t get caught up taking days and not playing.

“Le’Veon is in a different situation. He’s been doing this. He’s a running back. Their career expectancy is a little shorter due to stats and all that. Le’Veon is a guy who has proved himself time and time again. … I hope Le’Veon gets the highest contract a running back has ever had in history of the entire NFL.

“… I’m not here to hold out. I’m here to practice. I’m here to get better each and every day. I feel I have stuff I can improve on, stuff I need to work on, and really stuff I’m willing to work on.”
