Odell Beckham Jr. wants to become the NFL's highest-paid player regardless of position.

"It's like the elephant in the room, and you don't want to talk about it," Beckham says in the video. "But I've gotten to the point in my life where I'm like, 'No, I'm going to ... there's no need to not talk about it.

"I believe that I will be hopefully not just the highest-paid receiver in the league, but the highest-paid, period."

Beckham is to make $1.8 million this season. He is set to make over $10 million this year in endorsements separate from his football income, including $5.8 million from his newly-signed Nike deal.

Beckham is scheduled to be paid $8.459 million in the fifth year of his rookie contract, a figure well below other top wide receivers. Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown recently signed a new deal worth $17 million per season.
