OBJ: Gregg Williams Teaches 'Cheap Shots'

Sep 13, 2019 8:38 AM

Odell Beckham, Jr. is adding a subplot to Monday night's Cleveland Browns-New York Jets game.

Beckham accused Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams of teaching "cheap shots" and "dirty hits." The receiver said those cheap shots led to an ankle injury that almost derailed his career two years ago.

"If I was a coach, I would never teach what he teaches," he said. "But that's just him and what he does."

In a 2017 preseason game, when Beckham was with the New York Giants and Williams was Cleveland's defensive coordinator, Beckham sprained his ankle after being undercut by cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun, who drove his shoulder and helmet into the star receiver's left leg.

Beckham tried to come back from that injury too soon and ultimately broke his ankle.

The star receiver said that according to his Cleveland teammates, Williams, who eventually became Cleveland's interim head coach last year before taking a job with the Jets, actually told the Browns players to try to hurt Beckham during that 2017 preseason game.

"I had people who were here when he was here telling [them], 'If you get a chance, take a shot at him. If you can, hurt him. I guarantee he's going to leave the game hurt,' and stuff like that," Beckham said. "We're all men out here. There's no need for doing any of that kind of stuff. Make the plays the best you can clean."
