One of the biggest stories coming out of the Cleveland Browns’ Week 1 43-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans, besides the team not looking as good as they had hoped, was the fact that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. wore a very expensive watch during the game. According to the NFL, however, the wide receiver won’t be subject to any fines for doing so.
Beckham made headlines yesterday when he wore a Richard Mille watch during the game against the Titans. The exact model of the watch – an RM 11-03 McLaren Flyback Chronograph – is priced at upwards of $350,000, making it a very bold move to wear during a high-contact sport like a football game.
Still, Beckham won’t be receiving any fine for wearing the expensive piece during the game. According to NFL Media (via Sporting News), wearing jewelry isn’t against any NFL rules, but Beckham did violate a rule about wearing hard objects onto the field. However, the league said that it will likely address the issue with the team and Beckham, and that it’s unlikely to escalate beyond that.
While Beckham did wear a very nice watch on the field, the Browns had a very bad day everywhere else. The Titans defense absolutely stifled the Browns, and quarterback Baker Mayfield had a disappointing day, finishing with 285 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions, one of which was brought back for a touchdown.
The Browns will be looking to bounce back against the New York Jets next week, where Beckham hopes to fit more into the offense and headlines outside of his watch.
