How The Giants Should Handle OBJ’s Eventful Off-Season, Jim Fassel Chimes In [AUDIO]
Odell Beckham Junior had one of the most epic rookie seasons an NFL wide receiver has ever seen, and that led to an equally crazy off-season.
The Madden Cover, ESPN's The Body Issue, appearances all over the country and more. Should Giants fans be concerned about Beckham Jr. heading into his second season?
"If I was a coach, I’d have him in and have a nice long talk with him," said former Giants head coach Jim Fassel, with Armen and Levack. "‘What you need to do now is shut all that stuff down.’ I’ve done it before.
"I’ll pick up the phone and call the agent and say, ‘You better support this because otherwise, this guy’s focus is not on playing football, it’s on promoting himself and that’s not a good deal. That’s the kind of stuff that a coach always has to be on top of or you have all kinds of problems."
The biggest problem is that Beckham Jr. has been limited on the field thus far through the summer with a hamstring issue, something that plagued him over the off-season last year and led to him missing the first four games of the season.
It's all coming fast and furious for OBJ. It's deserved, but is it too much for him? Time will tell as the Giants need him to be every bit of what he was in his debut year for the 2015 season.
