Odell Beckham fires back at Osi Umenyiora’s Giants exit question: ‘I got booted’


Someone check Odell Beckham Jr.’s backside for a shoeprint.

Beckham might have unbelievably escaped 45 minutes of questions Monday night as Super Bowl 2022 week kicked off without facing a single Giants-specific question if not for party-crasher Osi Umenyiora suggesting that he left New York.

“First, I didn’t leave, I got booted,” Beckham quipped. “Second, it is a great feeling to be here at this moment.”

Umenyiora, who works in media NFL UK, was called on by the moderator, which prompted an immediate “Uh-oh” and smile from Beckham. The two-time Super Bowl champion Umenyiora was inducted into the Giants’ Ring of Honor in 2015, Beckham’s second year with the Giants.

Beckham was traded after the 2018 season, after then-general manager Dave Gettleman decided that the greatest receiver in franchise history was a distraction that needed to be cleared out of the locker room. It was a stunning six-month reversal from re-signing him to a five-year, $95 million extension.

Since forcing his way off the Browns, Beckham has been anything but a distraction to the Rams. Does he find satisfaction in that?

“No. A younger me definitely would’ve, but I’ve come so far,” Beckham said. “I know who I am and I know myself. I know what I can bring, I know all of the stories. I don’t really take satisfaction because it’s not that deep for me.”
