Odell Beckham Jr Believes He's An Easy Target For Criticism After Backlash Over $350,000 Watch

Odell Beckham Jr thinks he is being singled out for criticism after wearing a $350,000 watch during an NFL game on Sunday.

The superstar wide receiver took to the field for Cleveland Browns against Tennessee Titans wearing a plush Richard Mille watch.

The NFL also told Beckham and his team that he violated league policy by wearing the watch, but he escaped a fine.

Speaking on Tuesday, though, Beckham said he doesn't understand what all the fuss is about.

The 26-year-old said: "If anybody else would've worn the watch, if it was a $20 watch, it would have been no problem.

"It it ain't this, it's something else. If it wasn't the watch, it would be the way I tie my shoes."


Beckham is one of the flashiest players in the league, and he made it clear he plans to continue playing in the watch.

"I'll still be wearing it," he said. "The same way I wear it every day I go to practice, when I go here, I go there, been wearing it. Take a shower with it on. It's just on me."

He also wore a spicy pair of bright orange Nike Vapor Yeezy cleats in Sunday's season opener.

The wide receiver was traded from the New York Giants during the off-season and caught seven passes for 71 yards against Tennessee.

Beckham and his team-mates were much hyped heading into the new campaign, but they were embarrassed by the Titans on home soil on Sunday.
