Super Bowl champion wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is enjoying free agency while recovering from surgery on an injured ACL. Beckham has already been spotted on the sidelines interacting with players during numerous games this season.
Beckham‘s free agency tour continued Sunday when the New Orleans Saints hosted their NFC South rivals, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs won, 21-10, after a massive brawl between the two teams.
However, Beckham Jr. got the NFL world buzzing before the game when he met with future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady and exchanged unknown words.
Odell Beckham Jr. is in New Orleans today for Saints-Bucs … and he bumped into Tom Brady during pregame warmups.
