Odell Beckham Jr. reacts to Justin Jefferson’s epic one-handed catch
Peep Jefferson’s amazing one-handed snag below together with Beckham’s reaction. From the looks of it, Beckham was surprised to see the Vikings newcomer to replicate his signature move. Sure enough, imitation is the highest form of flattery in this case.

OBJ, of course, is the master of the one-handed catch. He has done it in critical games and during warm-ups, and one could say that it is his trademark move.
One-handed grab. Too easy. 😳

While Odell Beckham Jr. seems to have been caught off guard by the rookie, the Vikings staff have been very aware of Justin Jefferson’s talents. That’s the reason why they picked him 22nd overall in the 2020 draft.
“Justin’s a good player,” head coach Mike Zimmer said after the NFL Draft, per Vikings.com. “He’s a guy that we really, really liked. I know the offensive staff really liked him – a tough, competitive guy. Goes up and gets the football, a hard worker, he makes a lot of contested catches. A really good player, a good kid. He played a very similar offense in college, so I think he’ll fit in well.”
Given this, Viking fans need not be jealous of OBJ and the Browns. Now, they have their own wideout who can catch the football in epic fashion.
