Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis criticized New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. over damaging his own legacy with off the field antics.

It is nothing new that people are criticizing New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. over his off the field antics, but now Ray Lewis has stated that he believes that these issues could cost OBJ his legacy.

“These young kids have lost their minds. The social media wave: it’s all about me, me, me.” Lewis stated.

It’s hard to say that Beckham puts himself before the team just because he is active on social media, maybe it is just a case of an old school player not understanding how the new school athlete works.

There is no doubt that OBJ wasted a prime opportunity last Sunday to show the world what he is made of, but he is still very young with time to mature and hopefully many more opportunities to prove himself.
