Odell Beckham Jr.’s new cleats tell media critics to be quiet
Odell Beckham Jr. made headlines by skipping the Giants’ voluntary workouts last month, so when he returned to the field for mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, he had a message for the media.
Beckham hit the field for practice wearing custom cleats covered in the logos of several media outlets, including the New York Post, ESPN and TMZ. (Sports Illustrated, it appears, was spared. Thank you, Odell.) Plastered over the media logos were big red letters that read “Shhhhhhh!!!”
The Post rolled with the punches and put Beckham’s cleats on the front page on Wednesday morning.
Beckham has had his fair of trouble with the media, most notably after an impromptu trip to Miami before a playoff game against the Packers. “Ship wrecked,” the Post’s front page blared. “Yacht’s all, folks! Giants sink, Odell stinks in blowout.”
