New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan fancies himself somewhat of a style guru, and like many other NFL athletes, he takes his fashion very, very seriously.
Arguably catching fire with Hall of Famer Deion Sanders during his playing days and then re-igniting with retired New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, style has become an extension of the players away from the field. And as cameras continue to run in an effort to catch players going from the bus to the locker-room, we see the individualistic nature of the players more and more.
But who are the league’s most elite in terms of fashion? The Undefeated recently asked Jordan exactly that, and as one might expect, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. headed up the list.
“You got rock stars like Von Miller, , Alvin Kamara. You’ve got smooth cats that come in, they dress in tees. You’ve got the tight end from the Vikings , tight end from Kansas City . Malcolm Jenkins is always fitted to the nines,” Jordan said. “You talk about quarterbacks, Cam Newton’s gonna be your most fashion-forward. Ever since Russell Wilson has stepped his game up since he had a son, you know what I’m talking about? I don’t know what it was. He had a son and he’s just been stepping everything up.
“I’m probably gonna go Reggie White. He always had that big ol’ trenchcoat on. I’m gonna have to put Alvin Kamara up there. I can’t not put Mark up there because he stay fitted. It might have to come down to Cam Newton, Von or OBJ. All of them are iconic, so I’m gonna go Odell just because he’s from the area.”
And why didn’t Sanders make Jordan’s Mount Rushmore? Because of Mr. Odell Beckham Jr.
“I can only have one skinny guy. OBJ outboxes him,” Jordan added.
There’s little doubt Beckham is among the most-stylish players in all of sports, which he undoubtedly picked up from the aforementioned Cruz. But there’s no denying that other players Jordan mentioned, such as Denver Broncos edge rusher Von Miller, are right up there as well.
