Odell Beckham Jr trolled Mike Tomlin with yawn celebration
Odell Beckham Jr. broke out a yawn celebration after a long catch early in Thursday night’s Cleveland Browns-Pittsburgh Steelers game, and it was done as a shot at Mike Tomlin.
During an interview with ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler that aired over the summer, Tomlin was asked about facing the Browns with their new wide receiver addition of Odell Beckham Jr. joining Jarvis Landry. He yawned in response to the question about facing OBJ twice a year, suggesting he was not concerned.
Lost tape from our Tomlin interview in Va. in July: Tomlin gives the yawn hand sign when I ask him about facing Odell Beckham twice a year. The message? We face great players often. pic.twitter.com/Wb3jVaJTsZ

Beckham did not forget Tomlin’s comment and had it ready to go. After a 42-yard catch that set up Cleveland’s first touchdown of the game, Beckham mimicked Tomlin’s yawn.

Odell never forgets.
His season has not gone as he hoped; he only has one touchdown all season, and this may be part of the reason why. Still, he was happy to make a big play and rub it in to Tomlin on Thursday night.
