Odell Beckham Jr. has been a bit of a headache for the New York Giants, so much so that the Giants reportedly have been fielding trade offers for the talented wide receiver this offseason.
While Beckham’s “antics” are relatively tame, Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis believes he knows how to solve the wide receiver’s issues.
The former Baltimore Ravens linebacker went on Monday’s episode of “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” and dropped a pretty insane take on Beckham needing more God and less Justin Timberlake in his life.
“Where there’s no God, there’s chaos,” Lewis said, as transcribed by For The Win. “Odell has removed God from his life. This is a kid who grew up under the covenant of who God really is. And everything he’s doing, he’s crying out for help. We have a lot of people reporting about it, but it’s always been the duty of elders to go back to help him. So that’s why I raised my hand. I told him ‘I’m here. Whatever you need.”
This all makes sense, let’s continue.
“So we started to make those phones calls; we started to have conversation. And then I started to see, he started to distance himself. A little more, a little more and a little more.”
Lewis then claimed that Beckham distancing himself caused his “foundation to be disturbed.”
“When your foundation is disturbed — when everything you’re doing is the opposite of what got you to this place — then you’re making your own bed harder.”
Then came the Timberlake take. Buckle up.
“I tell people this all the time … you show me your crowd, I will show you your future. Man, Justin Timberlake never played no football. I love Justin. But Justin ain’t getting out there on that ground like that. These guys he’s hanging out with, they’re in the studio all night. They don’t have to get up … they don’t have no discipline when it comes to athleticism.”
Now that’s a take.
