How big of a Tom Brady fan is Odell Beckham Jr.?
Big enough that he plans to hand-deliver a pair of custom-made cleats to the New England Patriots quarterback when his Cleveland Browns come to town next Sunday.
Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal has the details:
#Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said he has a pair of goat hair cleats to give #Patriots quarterback Tom Brady before or after Sunday's game. OBJ also has a pair for himself. "But I’m gonna give them to him because he’s one of the GOATs, and he’s more the GOAT than I am."— Nate Ulrich (@ByNateUlrich) October 22, 2019
Nothing like a pair of "goat hair" cleats to show respect to one of your NFL idols.
Beckham's love affair with Brady goes way back, as the two exchanged jerseys after a New York Giants-Patriots preseason game in 2016.
Beckham and Brady since have exchanged several compliments on social media, with the former repeatedly using the "goat" emoji to confirm he believes Brady is the greatest QB of all time.
The Browns obviously will be trying to stop the Patriots on Sunday, but apparently that won't stop Beckham from showing his appreciation for their quarterback.
