Odell Beckham upset he lost earring in altercation with Marlon Humphrey
Odell Beckham Jr and Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey got into a scuffle on Sunday during which Humphrey appeared to grab Beckham by the throat, but the star wide receiver is less concerned about that and more worried about the jewelry he lost.
Beckham was asked about the exchange after the game, and he said the only thing he is “upset” about is losing an earring during the skirmish.

An official appeared to be looking right at Humphrey when he grabbed Beckham near the neck area, but no flag was thrown. Here’s a video of the exchange:
Odell had every right to go at Marlon Humphrey. You can’t choke another player.

The league explained why there was no ejection on the play.
Referee Shawn Hochuli on not making any ejections for OBJ/Humphrey dustup: "We didn't see anything on the field that rose to the level of a disqualifying foul. When NY looked at it, they didn't see anything either that rose to level of disqualifying foul."

Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens was not happy about what transpired.
Freddie Kitchens to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, on the scuffle between Marlon Humphrey and Odell Beckham: “I saw what you saw. He was getting choked on the ground. They get away with that because it’s Odell. I’m going to be one the phone with Al (Riveron) when I get on the bus.”

We know how much Beckham loves his jewelry, so it’s no surprise the earring was his biggest concern. Remember, this is the same guy who literally wore a luxury watch during a game earlier in the season. His accessories are quite important to him.
