Odell Beckham Jr. is one of the best young players in the NFL right now and there is no doubting his ability to be one of the best wide receivers in the league for years to come.

However, all is not right in the world of the New York Giants superstar, who has endured a less than stellar start to the 2016 campaign.

Speaking in a recent interview, Beckham laid all his feelings bare, summing his situation up by saying that he just doesn't love playing football.

In an interview with Anita Marks of ESPN earlier this week, Beckham admitted that he was "not having fun anymore" playing football. "Football is my sanctuary. It's where I go to escape. It's where I'm most happy. I'm not having fun anymore," he added.

These comments come after Beckham struggled mightily against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football, where he posted the lowest single-game yardage numbers of his career. He also had another meltdown, clashing repeatedly with Xavier Rhodes.

That most recent outburst has poured scorn on Beckham's temperament. Now, the Giants man has had his say.

"What I'm communicating, we're not doing," he said. "I'm not getting the opportunities to contribute, and that's frustrating to me."

It probably won't help that Eli Manning has basically told the former LSU stud to man up.

"People are looking for him," Manning said. "He's got to play smart, and he can't afford to do anything there. They're going to call him. He's brought that on himself, and he's got to realize that."
