It seems like the New York Football Giants may finally be getting to the end of their tether with Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham has dominated the headlines this week after a poor performance against the Minnesota Vikings that had more tantrums than impressive receptions by the former first-round pick out of Louisiana State.

According to a new report breaking today, the Giants may be planning on benching Beckham if he acts up this weekend.

According to Thomas George of SB Nation, two coaches at the Giants have told him that Beckham Jr isn't above the law and will be dealt with if the wideout decides to pull another tantrum during the game.

"Here is where the Giants are with Odell Beckham, Jr. --€” another meltdown at Green Bay on Sunday night and he will be benched," George said.

In fact, it could get even worse for Beckham, with a suspension potentially on the cards if he goes too far.

"And depending on the severity of it, he could be suspended by the team for at least one game, maybe two," the SB Nation reporter added.

However, the two coaches are hopeful that Beckham has seen the error of his ways and that he will be on the straight and narrow from now on.

"This has been the straight talk, the real talk with Beckham. They do not expect, however, that it will come to this. They think he gets it. They think the worst of his in-game tantrums are over."
