Hall of Famer Cris Carter had strong words for Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. after the viral video incident late last week.
The seven-second video shows Beckham with what could be drugs, and though it can't be confirmed, Carter says it's time for the young wideout to grow up.
"I'm so disappointed and I expect better from him," Carter said on his "First Things First" FoxSports1 show on Monday. "It's enough with the excuses. Time for you to grow up and stop being a little boy. If you want to be a national brand, damn act like it. If you want someone to pay you as the highest-paid receiver in the history of the game, damn act like it."
Carter, who has been in negative headlines during his playing career, doesn't want to keep talking bad about Beckham constantly on his show considering his talent level.
"Enough is enough," he said. 'I'm sick of talking about him and the negative aspects. I can't talk about him and his releases. I can't talk about him catching the ball in traffic. Why? Because of this. This matters. Your image in sports will always matter. And you are in sports. You are not some rapper. You are in the NFL. You are under contract with the New York Football Giants. Act like it matters. Because they've had other Giants players along their career, it didn't matter to them. And it affected their arc as far as how great we consider them to be."
Carter also brought up one of those Giants he was referencing in fellow Hall of Famer LB Lawrence Taylor. Despite his great skill, Taylor had many off-the-field issues, and still isn't the same today. Carter doesn't want to see Beckham like that.
"Until this day, he still does not have his life under control," Carter said about Taylor. "To see another great athlete and to see that happen to them, I will not sit here and act like this is normal. No, it's not normal."
Carter has been known to be a mentor to Beckham, and he hopes that he reaches out to him if need be.
"This guy is an unbelievable talent, as talented as anyone I have ever seen," Carter said. "So I am disgusted with the whole thing. OBJ, call me, man. Enough of this stupidness."
