Until reporters approached him on Wednesday, New York Giants punter Brad Wing said nobody outside of the Giants organization asked him what went on before Sunday's game between Odell Beckham and the Carolina Panthers, even though he was among the players closest to the situation.
Many Giants reporters tweeted out Wing's account of what he heard. Wing said a player with a baseball bat (presumably Panthers practice-squad player Marcus Ball. who has been identified in a pregame video holding a bat and talking to Beckham) threatened Beckham. Beckham asked the player why he wasn't playing. Wing said the Panthers player told Beckham, "I'll be the reason you don't play today ... And other days," according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.
Ball seemed to deny the accusation he threatened Beckham, telling Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, "If I had $1 for all the ex-girlfriends that have false accusations about me ... " A simple yes or no might have worked better as a denial.
