Odell Beckham Jr. reacts to latest report on his contract demands
Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. continues to campaign for an NFL comeback after suffering a torn ACL in Super Bowl LVI just over a year ago.
It was his second ACL tear in less than 18 months, and naturally one wonders how capable he is of contributing to a team, especially one with big aspirations.
There have been rumors that Beckham is asking for a contract worth up to $20m a year, but he took to Twitter in an attempt to dispel such speculation.
I’m so confused where the quote from me that says I want 20…..😭🙄 all I’m saying is 4 AINT enough

Beckham’s early years were so recent that most football fans vividly remember how strong he was just a few years ago.
He made the Pro Bowl while racking up more than 1,300 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons before injuries started to slow him down.
A torn ACL is bad enough for a professional athlete, especially an athlete like Beckham who relied so much on world-class speed, but two of those injuries could have a compounding effect that could rob him of his effectiveness.
Beckham will probably no longer be a main threat on the sidelines, but he could be a very nice additional or situational option for a team that believes in him enough to sign him.
He recently held an open workout that reportedly brought together representatives from many NFL teams, but it’s unclear how much serious interest there is in the 30-year-old right now.
One team that is apparently out of the running for Beckham is the Giants, as he is believed to be out of their price bracket.
