Uh oh, looks like Johnny’s getting back in shape after that Mexican vacation where he was looking a little soft. And none other than Odell is in Los Angeles to catch passes from Football. It gets better: Odell missed the Giants first OTA session to be with his boy.
We’re told Manziel and OBJ hit the gridiron for some passing drills while hanging with Odell’s custom cleat artist, Kickasso … and we’re told the ex-Browns QB was firing the ball around — lookin’ like Johnny Football again.
The 10 OTA sessions that will take place over the next three weeks are voluntary. But it’s no secret that coaches would prefer to have the entire team in attendance as the installation of the offensive and defensive playbook begins.
It’s unclear why Beckham missed Monday’s session or if he plans to attend future OTAs. The next OTA is scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday’s OTA is the first session open to the media.
It’s a new era of NFL player, folks. OBJ clearly has his own rules — yacht party before a playoff game? — and if it’s not mandatory to be at the OTA, it appears he’ll do his own thing with a guy with 7 career NFL TDs and 7 career NFL INTs.
That’s Texas Tech’s next gunslinger – Nic Shimonek
