Browns’ Odell Beckham Jr. reveals what he told Mike Tomlin during Steelers game
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. made headlines after clapping back at Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin in Week 11. It seems that the yawning saga was not the only interaction that occurred between the two.
The pair were seen having a quick discussion following an incomplete pass late in the game. Beckham says he was just reminding Tomlin about his status as one of the most talented wideouts in the NFL, via Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk:
“I said, ‘You disrespected me,’’’ Beckham told Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com. “I said, ‘You know who I am.’ And he said ‘I know who you are. That’s why we’re doubling you all game,’ and this and that.’’
Beckham added that the comments and gestures he made were all in good fun.
“We were just talking,’’ Beckham said. “There’s never been no beef with me and no coach. We were just talking s—.’’
The jabs between Beckham and Tomlin only helped to make their primetime matchup one of the more memorable Thursday night games in recent history. Regardless, it just goes to show that shots fired hardly ever go unnoticed by the Browns star.
Beckham was ultimately able to get the last laugh with four receptions for 60 yards in the 21-7 victory. More importantly, the pivotal AFC North win has helped leave a glimmer of hope for the playoffs in what has been an otherwise disappointing 2019 NFL season.
Although Beckham’s numbers have been underwhelming this season, he is still clearly more than capable of making big plays happen for Cleveland.
