Odell Beckham Jr.'s behavior during Pro Bowl week was praised by NFL executive vice president Troy Vincent, ESPN reported on Wednesday.
"I would be remiss not to acknowledge how engaging and professional Odell Beckham Jr. was during the entire week of the Pro Bowl," Vincent wrote in a letter obtained by ESPN. "By far and away, he represented the New York Football Giants and the NFL with great poise, congeniality, and professionalism."
The letter was sent to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Giants owner John Mara, general manager Jerry Reese, coach Ben McAdoo, director of player development David Tyree and Beckham's agent, Zeke Sandhu.
"Odell single-handedly took our engagement to a higher level," Vincent wrote to the Giants. "You should be proud to have him representing your club and your city at the Pro Bowl and I didn't want to go another day without writing to acknowledge his extraordinary efforts."
Beckham's behavior on and off the field was a weekly topic of discussion. He punched a hole in the wall outside the Giants' locker room at Lambeau Field following New York's 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Wild Card game.
Victor Cruz said on the Timeout with Taylor Rooks podcast that he believes Beckham is misunderstood and that "there's a lot of things that he does that gets taken the wrong way."
