Odell Beckham Jr is still a free agent. Rumors have swirled during October and November about what team the Super Bowl winning receiver would sign for. The Bills, Cowboys, and even a return to the Giants have been on the table of OBJ. All 3 teams are in the playoffs, and none of them needed Odell’s services to get there. All of the chatter about Odell signing stopped in early December when he was removed from a plane for unruly behavior. The Odell Beckham Jr. body cam footage has now been released. Here’s what’s circling on the internet right now.

What are your thoughts?
Body cam of the Odell Beckham Jr plane incident was released and the responding officers couldn’t believe it was actually OBJ. One of them said “can I get his autograph.” Absolutely crazy. pic.twitter.com/YyttUOyyRF— Will Pesek (@WillPesek_) January 12, 2023
Doesn’t Seem so Bad
Well, that doesn’t seem so bad. The flight attendants are adamant that OBJ was unresponsive and took his pants off. This video does not show that. Is Odell disrespectful to the old man in the red shirt? Yes. Is that reason to remove him from the plane? I don’t think so. Does Odell come across as a spoiled athlete? A little. In fairness to the flight attendants, there is no video prior to authorities showing up. So for all we know they are telling the truth. But they went too far in removing him from the plane. He appeared calm, and responsive in the video. But it is understandable to want to avoid any potential issues when 30,000 feet in the air on a cross-country flight. The flight was Miami to Los Angeles.
I’ve had a few too many pops before a long flight. It eases the nerves and helps you nod off for a few hours. One of the flight attendants said he was coming from the club. Same idea I guess. The video is interesting, however I hope this is not the reason NFL teams passed on him for the playoff push. This Odell Beckham Jr. body cam footage is relatively tame compared to some of the stuff we’ve seen over the past years.
FINAL NFL POWER RANKINGS
It seems like yesterday that it was summer time and we were begging the NFL season to start. Now the regular season is over and it’s time to rank all 32 teams one more time, once and for all. But before we list our Final NFL Power Rankings lets take a quick look back at the season.
The Buffalo Bills started as the preseason favorite to win it all. Before the season ended, Damar Hamlin’s grave health scare made us all Bills fans. Speaking of injuries, Tua suffered multiple concussions and yet the Dolphins limped into the postseason after an 8-3 start. Pittsburgh was dreadful but Mike Tomlin figured a way to avoid his first ever losing season. The Titans slid off the map and the Jags turned out to be pretty decent. And the Colts… well, I’m not sure what to say about them this season.
Speaking of disasters, the Raiders blew more three-score leads than I can remember. KC is still good as long as Patrick Mahomes is there. And let’s not forget about Joe Burrow and the Bengals and how they are poised to make another Super Bowl run.
In the NFC, the Eagles looked pretty solid from beginning to end. The Cowboys tried to make a run at them but something isn’t quite right with that team. Tom Brady is a year older but he’s in the playoffs…with a losing record. The Vikings love the nail-biters and the Lions were busy biting knee-caps. The Rams repeat bid was a disaster and Mr. Irrelevant might lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl.
It’s been a crazy, crazy season. And we loved every minute of it. So, one more time, here’s our Final NFL Power Rankings for the Shemon and Sheppard Show on ESPN Southwest Florida. Enjoy and feel free to share.
