Odell Beckham Jr. continues to be one of the most visible athletes on the planet. OBJ was just named the most fashionable athlete by Sports Illustrated.

According to Jamie Lisanti of Sports Illustrated, the famous publication has named New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. the most fashionable athlete.

The modern athlete has become equal parts entertainer, entrepreneur and influencer. Beckham is no exception as his stand-out fashion sense and eye-popping play on the field has had a major effect on kids around the world.

In an issue that will debut July 16, 2018, Beckham discusses his fashions sense and time away from the game of football.

Lisanti writes,

“I’m weird,” he says on a Friday in June in New York City, a collar of layered diamond chains glittering around his neck. “I think I just naturally stand out.”

Beckham from his hair down to his sneakers is not afraid to try something different. And after signing a five-year, $25 million contract with Nike, Beckham has become no stranger to donning major brands like Gucci, Supreme and Balenciaga.

However, the Pro Bowl receiver also touched on his time away from football. Beckham does not mince words when discussing his desire to get back to the field.

“I remember taking football for granted at times,” he says. “When it’s stripped away from you, you appreciate it more. I’m just ready to get back on the field, honestly.”

This is certainly good news for Giants fans, as every television set, and/or computer and smartphone screen benefits from having Beckham on it.

With the addition of rookie Saquon Barkley and a hungry Eli Manning looking to cement his reputation as one of the league’s top quarterbacks, the Giants are looking for a return to the playoffs.

However, regardless of Big Blue’s record, one thing is for certain, Beckham will continue to be front and center, whether you like it or not.

*Side Note* Any way we can Manning to compete for this award next year?

… probably not …
