Bills players call Odell Beckham Jr. a ‘prima donna’, say he threw punches during game

odell-beckhamThe Buffalo Bills held Odell Beckham Jr. in check for the most part holding him to 5 receptions and 38 yards. His only real highlight from Sunday was on a catch that didn’t even count.Despite not doing much during the game, Bills players were left with plenty of opinions on the Giants receiver. And in short, they were not fairly impressed with him. Especially since they allege that Beckham Jr. got upset when they were physical with him and even threw punches during the game.

Several in the locker room said Beckham threw multiple punches after the whistle in the New York Giants’ 24-10 win at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday, describing the Giants receiver as a “prima donna” and a “golden boy” who gets away with various cheap stunts.
When Beckham’s name is brought up in the locker room Tuesday, the soft-spoken Gilmore shakes his head.

“I don’t know what’s up with him,” Gilmore said. “He acts like nobody’s supposed to hit him and you’re supposed to let him catch the ball. He’s weird. He gets mad when you play physical with him. He’s weird.

“He’s different. It’s kind of like you’re playing your little brother and he gets mad at you for being too physical with him — throwing a tantrum. I’m like, ‘Man, we’re playing football. It’s a physical game. … He’s a prima donna. He feels like he’s on top of the world and nobody’s supposed to do anything to him.”

It’s interesting to see opposing players calling Beckham “golden boy” in just his 2nd year. It makes you wonder if his impressive rookie year has gone to his head or if this is just sour grapes throughout the league.
