Published Add your comment

Odell Beckham Jr. may have only played 12 NFL games in his career but the rookie sensation is quickly becoming one of the league's biggest stars.

After racking up 91 receptions (including that catch), 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in his debut season the New York Giants wide receiver isn't letting up in the offseason.

Record Breaker

Aided by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, Beckham Jr. managed to break a Guinness World Record today.

As you might expect the record attempt centered around ODB's freakish talents for catching a football with just one hand. Tasked with making as many one-handed catches as possible within 60 seconds, the former LSU star racked up 33 grabs with ease.

Beckham didn't drop a single pass, but considering Brees was slinging footballs from only about 10 yards away its not surprising.

I mean this is the man who did this.

And this.

And this.

And here is his latest achievement in full...

Up and up

If the hype around Beckham Jr. wasn't already growing quickly enough, having 'World Record Holder' on your CV isn't a bad way to continue the meteoric rise.

Beckham arrived in the league as the 12th overall pick of the 2014 draft but NFL fans had to wait until Week 5 to see him take to the gridiron in the pros after a hamstring injury kept him out the first four games.

The young star hasn't looked back since and, in the 12 weeks that followed, proceeded to destroy just about any secondary he found himself up against.

Beckham's incredible 2014 campaign saw him break a host of rookie records including most consecutive 100-plus yard games (four).

With the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff already accepting they are in for some tough years ahead of them it looks like the world is Beckham's oyster heading into the offseason.
