Entertainment And News

Odell Beckham Jr. — also known to football fans as "OBJ" — is a Wide Receiver for the NFL's Cleveland Browns. He was drafted by the New York Giants as a first round draft pick in 2014, breaking several NFL rookie receiving records in his first season.

A NFL Pro Bowler in his first three seasons, Beckham signed a five-year, $95 million contract extension with the Giants in August 2018. However, he suffered a quad injury late into the season and missed the last four games.

Beckham was acquired by the aforementioned Browns in March 2019 and managed to play in all 16 games during the 2019 NFL season. He only scored four touchdowns during the season but still received over 1,000 yards over the course of those 16 games.

Beckham made headlines last month when it was announced he was undergoing core muscle surgery. He has also made recent headlines due to his relationship with girlfriend Lauren Wood, specifically their recent African safari. Below is more information on Beckham, Wood and the relationship between the two.

Prior to that announcement, the two notably had commented on each other's Instagram photos for months leading up to that. With regard to his dating life, however, Beckham had stated in an interview that he doesn't "need to give you" information about his dating life: "You want to talk about my job, football? We can talk about that. But this is my personal life. There’s two separate lines. So I always try to keep that.”
