On November 23, 2014, the NFL landscape was changed forever when Odell Beckham Jr. made his infamous catch against the Cowboys on Sunday Night. Video of the catch was everywhere, and by lunchtime the next day, there wasn’t a sports fan alive who didn’t know the name of the young Giants rookie who since then has become one of the most polarizing stars in sports today. From off the field issues to on the field antics, OBJ’s character has been questioned on more than one occasion, but his on-field performance is something that nobody can doubt. Despite failing to make much of an impact in his only playoff game, catching only 4/11 targets for 28 yards in a 38-13 loss to Aaron Rogers and the Green Bay Packers, Beckham Jr. is already in the top-15 on the Giants all-time receiving yards leaders list and top-5 in receiving touchdowns. He’s been a force, to say the least when he’s on the field, but there lies the problem. Odell has played a full 16 game season just once in 2016 and followed that up with a 2017 campaign that ended in week 4 after suffering a season-ending ankle injury in a game against the Chargers.
Beckham has been all over social media posting his workouts, but now the people over at FacebookWatch have put together a 16-episode docu-series chronicling OBJ’s comeback as well as his life outside of football entitled “I Am More: OBJ.” With the inaugural episode airing tonight, new installments can be viewed on the shows page every Friday as cameras follow the larger than life star throughout the 2018 season, giving fans a glimpse of what life is like as one of the Big Apple’s biggest stars.
After signing his brand new $95 million contract, Odell came out and caught 11/15 targets for 111 yards in week one against last year’s top defense, the Jacksonville Jaguars.
