Former New York Giants star and now current Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Twitter rants about his troubles with Big Blue.
He’s always been outspoken, even to the point where Giants fans became sick of him. This is despite his talent and what he was able to bring to the field. Beckham has made the Pro Bowl three times thus far in his five-year career.
The recent social media-infused drama started Sunday night when Beckham responded to an article written by Karlton Jahmal of HotNewHipHop.com.
In the article, Giants general manager Dave Gettleman claims there was a “culture problem” within the organization. This problem ultimately led to the trade of OBJ in March.

Beckham missed the final four games of the regular season due to a quad injury sustained in a Week 12 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Supposedly, according to Beckham, Giants head coach Pat Shurmur didn’t let Beckham travel with the team afterward. The reason or reasons for Shurmur doing this is still unknown.
Beckham was shipped off to the Browns for a first-round pick (No. 17 overall), a third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers. Thanks to this trade, the Giants can now hold off on choosing a quarterback until later on in the first round if they want to. Their original No. 6 pick can be used on a pass rusher or even an offensive lineman if they wish to go that route.
