I’m sure you remember the issues between Odell Beckham Jr. and Josh Norman (we covered it extensively on here).  Towards the end of the season, the Panthers were undefeated at the time and continuing their push towards the Super Bowl; it was a loss season for the Giants but they didn’t want to go out quietly.  The focus of the game ended up being the ongoing tussling and fighting between cornerback Norman and wide receiver Beckham.  OBJ was flagged for three unnecessary roughness penalties, twice on the same drive in the third quarter, including a deliberate shot to Norman’s head with a helmet-to-helmet collision. Norman also drew an unnecessary roughness penalty.  Beckham was suspended for one game while Norman was fined $26,044 for his involvement.  In a recent interview with GQBeckham discussed one of the things he learned while living with Drake is to stop allowing people to make a name off him.  The person he’s mainly talking about is Josh Norman.

Odell Beckham Jr. believes Norman signed with Washington because of Odell Beckham Jr.

“I’m sure,” he says.

Really? He came for you?

“Yeah. For sure. I mean, it’s a smart business move for him.”

“It goes back to what I was saying. If I wasn’t playing him twice a year, maybe people wouldn’t bring it up as much,” Beckham says. “But now it’ll be a lot more media attention for him, attention that I don’t really look for, attention that I don’t need. The reason that he’s become so relevant is because of me.”

Norman signed a five-year, $75 million deal with the Washington Redskins, which ensures plenty of head-to-head match ups between them.  Many assumed he left the Super Bowl contending Panthers for the money but it’s kind of crazy of OBJ to stay he’s the sole reason.
