Former Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. made a wide range of comments about his former team recently, mostly aimed at General Manager Dave Gettleman.
Included in the group of topics was Beckham taking credit for getting the Giants on prime-time games during his tenure with the team and keeping "the brand alive." Beckham has since said he was done talking about the G-men.
But Eli Manning never got a chance to chime in, and the quarterback finally has. The 16-year vet brushed off the comments, but also subtly said there's proof of otherwise.
"I don't think they bothered me. You just kind of shake your head and laugh," Manning said, according to Jeremy Bergman of NFL Network's Around The NFL, "I won a few games before he was here."
The highlighted of those W's that came before OBJ suited up for New York are his two Super Bowl titles. The Giants made Beckham their first-round pick in 2013 and traded him to the Cleveland Brown in March.
In his five seasons with the Giants, Beckham had 390 catches for 5,476 yards with 44 touchdowns. The team's overall record in those five seasons was a combined 31-49 record and Beckham only saw the postseason once.
Both the Browns and Giants have their 2019 training camps underway and Beckham will have an opportunity to decided whether or not he wants to respond to Manning's comments soon.
