Odell Beckham Wants Highest Paid Player, Mallet Signed Over Kaepernick, USC No OJ


New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr announced on UNINTERRUPTED he wanted to be the highest paid player (not just the highest paid wide receiver) in the NFL. Odell is still working off of his 5 year rookie contract and will make $1.8 million this year and $8.4 million next year (his 5th year). This sum is significantly below other top receivers in the league.  Most of the top paid players in the league are quarterbacks with the Ravens Joe Flacco at the top with $24.55 million. The highest paid receiver this year is Dallas’ Dez Bryant at $17 million.

Speaking of Flacco, the Baltimore Ravens have seemingly opted out of signing Colin Kaepernick as a backup to an injured Flacco (missing a week due to back surgery). The team announced they were signing arena-league quarterback David Olson. Ryan Mallet is expected to immediately take over duties while Flacco is out, but Olson will have his shot at backup as well. Before transferring to Stanford, Olson played for Jim Harbaugh (the brother of Ravens’ coach John Harbaugh).

Former Heisman trophy winner and former Hall of Famer, OJ Simpson could be free from his recent jail sentence in October. OJ was once the most celebrated USC alumni, but now current USC coach Clay Helton said he wouldn’t allow OJ on the field. He stated, “Currently right now, what the USC administration and the athletic department have said is, no, O.J. will not be a part of our functions or invited.”
