This NFL football season, veteran wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will be playing his first snaps in well over a year as he makes his return to the league. But even though it will be a triumphant return to the field, it seems like it will be his last season, as well.
During a recent interview with Dan Pompei of The Athletic, Odell Beckham Jr. announced that he is viewing this upcoming NFL season as his last and that he is planning to retire after the season.
“I’m thinking like this is my last year,” Beckham said according to Dan Pompei of The Athletic. “I’m going to give it my all this year. And then if something happens after that, we can go from there.”
Beckham also admitted that he almost chose to retire from the NFL after suffering the brutal knee injury in the Super Bowl against the Cincinnati Bengals. But ultimately, he decided to return and play one more season with the Baltimore Ravens.
“I went through a lot the last couple of years, and I thought it was over,” Beckham said. “I didn’t want to get back up on the horse and do the same song and dance all over again.
So unless something changes, this is expected to be the final NFL season for the former All-Pro wide receiver. We’ll have to see how he is able to perform and whether or not he can go out on top.
