The New York Giants and their fans have a lot to look forward too in the upcoming 2015 NFL season.
The Giants have a returning Victor Cruz to come in and slot back in to his role at wide receiver following the injury he suffered last year, while fellow wideout Odell Beckham Jr. is coming back for his sophomore season after breaking all sorts of team and NFL records in 2014.
But it seems that Beckham isn't happy however, with the former LSU player hitting out at his Giants teammates in an interview yesterday.
According to a report from Dan Graziano of ESPN.com, Beckham's teammates have been harassing the Madden 16 cover star about his new-found fame and it seems like OBJ has had enough.
“For me, this is what I love doing, and this is what I feel like my purpose was to do,” Beckham said. “So it takes a lot of strength for me to be able to come here every day and not practice, have to hear the little remarks, the little jokes, this and that."
Beckham went on to clarify what those "little remarks" were, with calls about his claims of playing so well last season despite hamstring injuries and how he is too famous now.
“And it’s not just about a hamstring. It’s so many other things that people talk about," he said. "So it’s hard to come here and try and focus on ‘What play is up right now?’ instead of thinking about how bad you want to be out there.”
So who’s giving Beckham a hard time?
“Everybody,” Beckham said. “Because of the hamstring last year and then the fame, it’s like, ‘Oh, you’re too big-time now,’ all that. So I mean, I just hear it and you want to blow it off, but after a while it gets old, and it kind of bothers you.”
The New York Giants don't exactly have the greatest past with hazing and bullying. In 2012, a video emerged of Jason Pierre-Paul dunking Prince Amukamara into a cold tub, despite the fact that the DB wasn't even a rookie any more. Amukamara didn't exactly act like it was a light-hearted prank either.
