O’dell Beckham Jr., is one of the NFL’s most flamboyant players, who racked up many personal statistical records during his stint with the Giants, including Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2014. However, in his five years with the Giants, the team only had one winning season and lost in round 1 of the playoffs that year, and Beckham has been injury prone as well. Ahead of the 2019 season, the Giants decided to move on from Beckham, despite his big-play ability and many records, and he was traded to the Browns in the off-season. Upon arrival at Brown’s OTAs earlier this month, where he got to reunite with his former LSU teammate Jarvis Landry, Beckhams’s already started making headlines. This time, it was for wearing the near $200K Richard Mille RM 11-03 McLaren, with an orange and black color scheme that matches the Brown’s uniforms.
