Earlier this week, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was in the news again after being labeled a selfish player, which he took to Twitter to dispute vehemently.

While appearing on FOX Sports 1’s “First Things First,” Doug Gottlieb addressed Beckham, proclaiming the superstar is not about winning. Beckham, taking issue with that, lashed out on various social media accounts.

On Thursday, retired NFL receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh appeared on “The Herd” and was asked about Beckham and the notion that he’s an immature and selfish player.

“He wants to win. He’s pretty much a global superstar in the NFL and you rarely see that; it’s probably him, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. And so, now that he’s established himself; he wants to win, the Giants have had zero success since he’s been in the NFL and the dysfunction is failure,” Houshmandzadeh said. “That’s what it is, we have failed to win, I’m frustrated, I want to win. It’s as simple as that, that’s how I see it; if they win, none of this comes out.”

Nobody has ever doubted Beckham’s ability on the field, but many think Beckham’s level of distraction could be a reason for the Giants to get rid of him.

The Giants signed Beckham to a long-term mega-contract, and despite shooting down trade rumors time and time again, the trade rumors have not ceased.

Colin Cowherd also saw Beckham’s side of the argument and said the Giants have been a bad environment for the star receiver. After all, the Cleveland Browns are the only team who has lost more games than the Giants over the past two years. The Giants have also had three coaches in the last four years.

Although the talk around Beckham is not likely to end any time soon and critics may continue to call him a selfish player, it’s certainly nice to see him talk about his passion to win.
