Josh Norman has spent all summer telling anyone who’ll listen, that he’s over Odell Beckham Jr. and their supposed beef, but the Redskins star cornerback’s latest comments are sure to keep the beef going.
Norman sat down with Scott Fowler of the Charlotte Observer for a book titled “Panthers Rising” about the Panthers’ dream 2015 season — and in it — Norman talked about his feud with Beckham at length.
“I’ll be honest. I don’t care for the guy at all,” Norman told Fowler in an excerpt published in Saturday’s Observer.
“Now don’t get me wrong, he’s a good player or whatever, but he’s not what he thinks he is. If you hit guys like that, if you completely jam them and shake them up, they can’t relate to that. So they start making excuses like, ‘Oh, he touched me.’ They don’t know how to respond because they never got hit like that. So me, every time I see him, I’m going to hit him in the mouth. I don’t care. Until he stops crying and b—-ing.”
Referring to Beckham’s instant celebrity — Norman took the ultimate shot — calling OBJ’s highlight-reel, one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football in 2014 — “one stupid little ball.”
“He catches one stupid little ball, and everybody in New York (loves) this guy, because that’s the biggest amount of media in the world,” Norman said. “… So all that went to his big old head, and for some odd reason he thinks he’s somebody that he’s not.”
Week 3 can’t get here fast enough.
