Odell shares tweet saying he doesn’t have to do what McAdoo wants

Post date:



Odell Beckham may not be present at Giant OTAs, but he is on social media.

The star wide receiver, who has skipped the first three days of the voluntary offseason program, hasn’t been shy about sharing tweets that come to his defense, after some have questioned why he isn’t with his teammates.

“You want all your players here, especially the great players,” Ben McAdoo said Thursday, when Olivier Vernon and Owa Odighizuwa were also absent.

A day later Beckham retweeted Roland S. Martin of TV One’s NewsOne Now: “I’m sick of folks acting like star athletes must always do what a coach asks. McAdoo wants @OBJ_3 at workouts? See ya when it’s mandatory.”

Beckham also shared a tweet from Fox Sports’ Nick Wright. “While people are on Odell’s ass for not being at a voluntary workout, he’s here in LA reaching out to an all time great for extra coaching,” referencing Beckham’s workouts with Cris Carter.

Carter told the Daily News on Friday that the Giant star’s decision to not attend OTA’s isn’t a big deal. “With Odell, they go to extremes because it is him,” he explained. “In 108 days, he will be ready to play against the Dallas Cowboys. Is he with the Giants at OTAs? I don’t care. It’s not my job. My job as a former player is to help young players understand about the business. I’m committed to helping Odell get better. So as far as OTAs, that’s somebody else’s responsibility.”

Beckham’s tweet on Wednesday sums it up best: “‘If they don’t have a story these days they’ll make one…’ I might get that tatted #StayTheCourse”
