New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. hasn’t been the model of consistent on-field, off-field behavior many around the league would like him to be. The star wideout has a bright personality, and it has caused controversy in the past.
He’s making headlines once again. A seven-second video posted to social media shows Beckham in a bed and he appears to be holding some sort of brown cigarette or cigar.
Next to him in the bed is a woman who appears to be holding some sort of white powdery substance aligned in rows.
Here’s the video.

According to ESPN, the Giants are aware of the video, and gave the following comment in response.
“We’re aware of the video, but we don’t have any comment beyond that,” a Giants team spokesman said via email Friday night.
It’s unclear if this will negatively impact Beckham’s 2018 season. One thing is clear, this is terrible timing for a video of this content to come out, as the star wide receiver looks to ink a long term contract.
He is set to play on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal worth $8.5 million, and would likely become the highest-paid wide receiver in the league.
