Odell Beckham Skips OTA’s, Wright Takes Uber, Dak Prescott Wants PhD


New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. skipped this week’s “organized team activities” in order to make clear he’s interested in a new contract. He’s reported to make $1.8 million this season and $8 million in 2018. Beckham claims he won’t miss minicamp which begins on Tuesday.

This is the time of year when players need to show coaches and teams their dedication and commitment. Cornerback Shareece Wright certainly made a statement when he took an Uber from Chicago O’hare to the Buffalo Bills voluntary training camp in New York. According to Wright’s tweet after the trip, he paid $632.08 plus a $300 tip for the 8 hour trip. Wright will be competing for a starting spot on the Bills’ roster.

Dallas Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott is planning for life after football. Prescott already has a bachelors degree in psychology and a masters degrees in workforce leadership and plans to pursue a doctorate when his playing days are through. He said, “Even though I had all the confidence in myself in making it to the NFL or in the game of football, I knew that it could be taken away from me at any moment. I never wanted to be that guy saying, ‘What if I’d have gotten my degree or something, then I would’ve had something to fall back on.'”


Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers is tonight 9:00 pm ET, ABC.  Warriors up 2-0 in the best of seven series.
