23-year-old New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr is one of the NFL’s hottest young stars and his teammate Victor Cruz recently shared his thoughts on Beckham’s challenge moving forward.
According to BleacherReport, Giants teammate Victor Cruz stated the following:
“He’s becoming, slowly but surely, a professional, understanding the rights and wrongs of this game and the rights and wrongs of his craft,” Cruz said. “It’s just gonna take more and more reps, more and more time day in and day out to understand what’s good and what’s bad, but right now, between these lines, he understands.”
Beckham was suspended for 1 game last season after a dust up with Panthers cornerback Josh Norman (which allegedly involved a gay slur directed toward Beckham.)
Cruz said he believes the other leaders on the Giants roster must help him understand when to scale things back a bit during the course of a game:
“I think he has to temper that. I think it takes people like myself, people like Eli, other leaders on the team to come up to him and say: “Hey, man, we got your back. You don’t need to go above and beyond what’s being asked of you to do.”
Great advice looking ahead to the upcoming NFL season, in my opinion.
