The Josh Norman and Odell Beckham Jr. beef has only grown bigger now that the cornerback has moved to the NFC East.
The Redskins cornerback had an on-field spat with the Giants receiver last year when the former was with the Panthers and now that Norman is with rival Washington, things are only likely to get worse.
Not only has Norman rekindled the rivalry, but he claims people around the league have lost all respect for Beckham.
“Everybody saw what he was,” Norman told ESPN. “People from around the league were coming up to me afterward and saying, ‘He does that crap all the time.’ He lost so much respect from people for that little tantrum. I’ve already got a couple people telling me, ‘OK, I’ve got a hit out on him.’ It’s going to be rough for him this year. And he brought it on himself.”
For the record, the Giants and Redskins go head-to-head in Week 3 on Sept. 25 at MetLife Stadium. The Beckham-Norman rivalry should be on full display that afternoon in New Jersey.
The NFC East rivals also close out the regular season schedule against each other in Week 17 on New Year’s Day in Washington, D.C.
Though Norman doesn’t seem to like Beckham at all, he admitted he is a great receiver.
“He’s skilled and talented,” Norman said. “I won’t take that away from him. But he’s never been through any adversity in his life. It’s like, when are you ever going to grow up?”
Beckham, 23, has been one of the most explosive receivers in the league over his first two seasons in the NFL. After winning Offensive Rookie of the Year honors in 2014, he hauled in 96 receptions for 1,450 yards and scored 13 touchdowns in 15 games last season.
The Giants and Redskins are both looking to get on top of an NFC East division that appears to be very up in the air this year. New York finished 6-10 last season and hasn’t made the playoffs since winning the Super Bowl in the 2011-12 campaign.
Washington, meanwhile, is the defending division champion after finishing 9-7 last season before falling to the Packers in the Wild Card playoffs.
