The Giants traded Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns three months ago, but the star receiver is still not done talking about his former team.
Beckham, who has expressed displeasure with the Giants since being traded, vented some more about Big Blue in a Q&A with Complex Magazine this week where he sounded as if he was the one who wanted out of New York.
"I just felt with the Giants I was just stuck at a place that wasn't working for me anymore," he said in a Q&A with Complex Magazine. "I felt like I wasn't going to be able to reach my full potential there; mentally, physically, spiritually, everything I felt capable of doing, I just couldn't see it happening there.
"So I think allowing me to be in an environment where I can be myself and give it a different approach, I feel like my football will benefit. I'm just excited about being able to play football again and not have to deal with all the other stuff and politics that came with my previous role"
Beckham, who signed a record five-year deal with the Giants before last season, has previously said his situation with the franchise was "not the right fit" but those complaints appeared to mostly allude to the attempts to restrain his personality. This is the first time he seemed to suggest the Giants were hindering his ability to perform to his potential on the field.
His comments also come just weeks after he appeared to take a shot at Eli Manning, claiming he as to adjust to the speed of Baker Mayfield's arm strength.
Beckham and the Browns do not play the Giants this year, but they will be coming to New York in Week 2 for Monday Night Football against the Jets.
