Odell Beckham, Jr. cannot stop talking about Josh Norman. The Giants receiver, who claimed he's the reason Norman is "relevant" in the July issue of GQ, seems to have had a change of heart.
Speaking to WFAN's Boomer & Carton, Beckham said his fued with the Redskins cornerback has gotten out of hand.
He claimed that he tried to arrange an in-person meeting with Norman this summer to smooth things over. As with all celebrity athlete business, LeBron James' childhood friend/manager/business partner Maverick Carter was somehow involved.
"I told Maverick Carter, obviously they know each other through 'Uninterrupted.' We were trying to meet up and have a face-to-face," Beckham said. "We just were in different places at the wrong time. Just because it's gone from here to way over that way and it doesn't really need to. There's way bigger problems going on in this world."
The timeline here is questionable. Beckham wanted to meet up this summer, except his comments to GQ came out in July and NFL training camps start in August.
Even if he did reach out, Norman didn't seem too interested in anything OBJ had to say in this interview from July 29. "It means nothing to me. He’s talking about me, but I’m not talking about him."
Meanwhile, Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson has been sending disgruntled tweets about Norman being the highest-rated cornerback in Madden 17.
Peterson also got into it with Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson, who warned the Arizona corner to "keep my name out of your mouth."
At this point, Norman is pretty much the Taylor Swift of football. Rivals will talk until he drops the next big hit. Maybe on OBJ and the Giants in Week 3.
