Odell Beckham Jnr: 'The NFL doesn't see us as human'

Odell Beckham Jnr: 'The NFL doesn't see us as human'

Odell Beckham Jnr says the NFL season "shouldn't happen" and has slammed the company's owners, claiming they "don't see us as human".

With the competition finally set to kick-off on September 10, players still have the option to opt out of the season over COVID-19 fears and family reasons.

The NFL and NFL Players' Association came together on July 24 to outline the safety protocols regarding the return of football as the coronavirus pandemic continues to plague live sports events.

But despite pledging to put on the pads come September, Beckham Jnr is still concerned for the welfare of the players.

"It's obviously for their money. And that bothers me because there's always been this - and I hate saying it like that - but the owners' [attitude is], 'Oh we own you guys,' and just kind of that unfairness going on that they don't see us as human.

"I just feel like the season shouldn't happen and I'm prepared for it to not happen and I wouldn't mind not having it."

Beckham Jnr and the Browns take on Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens on September 14 at M&T Bank Stadium.

While Cleveland is not expecting their star wide receiver to opt out of the season, the deadline to do so ends on August 4.
