Odell, Odell Beckham Biography
Odell Beckham Jr. was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in November of 1992. He attended Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans where he was a letterman in track, basketball and football. As a senior, Beckham impressed everyone with 19 touchdowns and 50 catches for a total of 1,010 yards. He was also averaging 30.0 yards per punt return.
This young football star was regarded as a four star recruit by Scout.Com as well as Rivals.com. He was rated as the #40 player in the US as well as the #6 wide receiver. Beckham had his choice of universities, but choose Louisiana State over offers from Nebraska, Tulsa and Tulane. As a freshman in 2011, Beckham started 9 out of 14 games. He was named ALL-SEC selection as a freshman. He was the winner of the 2013 Paul Hornung Award and entered the 2014 NFL Draft, where he was chosen 12th overall by the New York Giants. Although Beckham was out for most of training season and the first 4 games of 2014 due to an injury to his hamstring, once on the field, he broke several rookie records with more than 700 receiving yards in a six game period.
This amazing football player does seem to have anger issues, however. During Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers, Beckham was involved in multiple fights/confrontations with Josh Norman. He had four personal foul penalties flagged against him in the second half. Due to this confrontational issue, the NFL Disciplinary Committee suspended Beckham for one game without pay, which many thought was quite lenient.
Beckham has a current net worth in 2016 of $5 million but earning $2.3 million per season, not including any endorsements that this star is sure to pick up, you can guarantee that this one game suspension without pay isn’t going to hurt his bottom line all that much.
