Football, the refs making calls. Basically they were warning me that one more personal foul — or whatever it is — and I’d be out the game. I thought (it) was pretty stupid that I got a personal foul for a celebration that I’ve done all year. It’s not like there was a player in front of me or anybody. It was very unintentional. The whole field is facing this way and I’m facing (the other) way. I’m not talking to nobody. Personally I thought it was stupid, but it is what it is.” – Odell Beckham Jr. Colin DCunha Odell is FED up with his coach pic.twitter.com/iITnLECTr9— Complex Sports (@ComplexSports) December 22, 2019 Interestingly, Odell Beckham Jr. did have somewhat of a productive outing against the Baltimore Ravens in their Week 16 matchup.

Late in the fourth quarter, OBJ cut the Ravens’ lead to nine by catching a touchdown. The Browns were then faced with two options – either kick the extra point or attempt the two-point conversion. The Cleveland Browns chose the latter and failed in the attempt, leading Odell Beckham Jr to throw his helmet on the sidelines and exchange a few choice words with Cleveland Browns coach Freddie Kitchens. However, the Browns wide receiver has dispelled any rumours of a rift with Freddie Kitchens in a post-match interview after the incident.Also Read | Odell Beckham Jr Shuts Haters, Addresses Those Doubting His Ability In NFL SUBSCRIBE TO US Last Updated: 24th December, 2019 15:04 IST Odell Beckham Jr Addresses Helmet-throwing Incident Against The Baltimore Ravens Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. cut a frustrated figure during the Browns’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
