Odell Beckham Jr. goes off on Twitter after ESPN showed fight with kicking net during NFL draft

Odell Beckham Jr. made a very brief appearance in ESPN’s coverage of the NFL draft on Thursday night.

The former New York Giants wide receiver wasn’t happy about it.

Beckham, who spent his first six seasons in the league with the Giants before he was traded to the Cleveland Browns last offseason, sounded off on the network in a series of tweets Thursday night.

Before the Giants selected former Georgia offensive lineman Andrew Thomas with the No. 4 overall pick, ESPN aired a package highlighting the team’s recent struggles, most notably that they have made the playoffs just once in the past eight seasons. 

In that, ESPN included the famous clip of Beckham fighting, and losing to, a kicking net on the sideline in 2016. 

While ESPN’s use of the clip had nothing to do with him, but rather the team’s struggles as a whole, Beckham still took great offense. 

He paused mid-rant to congratulate Thomas on making it to the NFL. 

But then got right back to it.
