It’s been a disappointing season for Odell Beckham Jr. and the New York Giants, but it cannot be blamed on the effort — and money — the superstar wide receiver devotes to his offseason routine.
Beckham revealed he spends in the range of $300,000 during the offseason for a costly wellness program. The Giants wide receiver made the claim in a scene from a new episode of his docu-series, “I Am More: OBJ.”
“I take care of my body each and every day. I put, probably, over $300,000 in my body in the offseason,” Beckham said, via ESPN. “It’s a lot to upkeep. I don’t ever want to decline.”
The standout wide receiver spent this past offseason rehabbing from ankle surgery, which required the expert services from the likes of trainers, track coaches, doctors and many others.
Footage from the series has shown Beckham routinely meeting with a chiropractor and personal biometrics trainer.
Jody Serra, Beckham’s chiropractor, mentioned the work with the WR involves efforts to restore and improve proper nerve flow as well as overall nervous system maintenance.
Beckham signed a five-year, $90 million contract this past offseason, a deal that included a $20 million signing bonus and features $65 million in guaranteed money. While the Giants (4-8) have been dismal overall, Beckham has enjoyed a productive season with 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns, not to mention two touchdown passes.
It has to be encouraging to the Giants that Beckham spares no expense to take care of his body, even if the enigmatic wideout can prove to be something of a pain when things aren’t going well for the team, which obviously has been the case this season.
