Odell Beckham Jr. plans to continue wearing his Richard Mille watch during games despite objections from the NFL.
“I’m here to play football,’’ Beckham said Tuesday. “I would love for them to talk about football and what I do on the field, if I messed up on the field or if I didn’t do well on the field, talk about my performance. Don’t talk about any extracurricular, that’s just it. If anybody else would’ve worn the watch, or if it was a $20 watch, it wouldn’t have been no problem.’’
The watch retails for approximately $350,000.
Beckham tweeted on Monday night, “If it ain’t one thing…it’s another.’’
He said the tweet was in response to the watch flap.
“Yeah, that’s just my life,’’ he said. “If I ain’t this, it’s something else. If it wasn’t the watch, it would’ve been the way that I tie my shoes.’’
Beckham Jr. was asked if he’ll still wear it during the game.
“The same way I wear it every day, at practice, I go here, I go there. I’ve been wearing it. Take a shower with it on. It’s just on me.”
