The Associated Press BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Watch it: Odell Beckham Jr.’s taking a stand against the NFL on his lavish wrist wear.
Beckham said Tuesday he intends to keep wearing the expensive watch he had on during Sunday’s season opener against the Tennessee Titans. The showy wide receiver believes the league has made an issue out of his jewelry only because it’s him.
“If anybody else would’ve worn the watch, or if it was a $20 watch, it wouldn’t have been no problem,” he said, adding, “If it ain’t this, it’s something else. If it wasn’t the watch, it would’ve been the way that I tie my shoes.”
On Monday, a league spokesman said there is no rule prohibiting wearing jewelry. However there is a policy “prohibiting hard objects.”
Beckham drove his customized orange Rolls Royce to Sunday’s game at FirstEnergy Stadium and then sported a Richard Mille watch, which retails for more than $200,000.
