Tuesday's NFL: Giants to deal with Beckham's antics
The New York Giants say they will internally handle wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s embarrassing post-touchdown celebration.
Co-owner John Mara said in an email Tuesday that he was unhappy with Beckham’s behavior Sunday in Philadelphia.
Beckham pretended to urinate like a dog after catching a fourth-quarter touchdown in the Giants’ 27-24 loss to the Eagles.
He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. The NFL probably will fine him.
“I do not want to get into a discussion about this, but I will say that I am very unhappy with Odell’s behavior on Sunday and we intend to deal with it internally,” Mara wrote in his email.
Beckham had nine catches for 79 yards and two TDs, including a one-handed one.

Westbrooks was stopped for speeding along Interstate 5 near Bakersfield on Friday and an officer spotted a gun in the glove box as Westbrooks was looking for his car’s registration document, Carr said.
