Tom Coughlin: Odell Beckham Jr. ‘is a distraction’ to Giants


Odell Beckham Jr.’s former coach believes the star wide receiver is beginning to pose a distraction to the New York Giants.

Tom Coughlin, who coached Beckham in 2014 and 2015, told CBS Sports Network’s “We Need To Talk” that the young receiver is beginning to be a distraction.

“He really believes that he is at his best at the top of his passion,” Coughlin said. “He is so talented. I don’t think there’s anything the kid can’t do. He is a good kid. He is a team guy in the team room. It’s just when he gets on the field, there’s only one way he knows how to play.

“I would love to try to help him in this regard because I think so highly of him. He is a distraction. If you watch a game the camera is on him the whole time.”

In light of Beckham’s rather blunt admission, it sounds as if he needs that help. Every time he plays, the spotlight is on him, and with teammates having to answer for his escapades now, it’s become a problem.
