Last Sunday, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. sat down with rapper Lil’ Wayne and ESPN’s Josina Anderson for a two-on-one interview on Sunday NFL Countdown.

By now, you know what transpired. A frustrated and “heated” Beckham questioned the heart of his teammates, implied he prefers to play in warmer weather and, subtly, took a shot at quarterback Eli Manning.

“Uhh, I don’t know [about Manning],” Beckham said. “I feel like … he’s not going to get out of the pocket. We know Eli’s not going to run it. Can he still throw it? Yeah. It’s cool catching it shallow and trying to take it, but I want to go over the top of somebody.”
