Why Odell Beckham Jr. is Suing NIKE and The 5 Teams in The Running to Sign Him For a Super Bowl Run

A couple of days ago, Super Bowl champ Odell Beckham Jr. was fully cleared after he tore his ACL in the Super Bowl win against the Bengals.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Odell would like to decide where he will spend the rest of the season by the end of the month, and he has five teams that he is currently considering.

Those teams include the Chiefs, Cowboys, Bills, 49ers, and a reunion with the Giants.

The Giants are probably the team that needs WR to help the most, but if he wants to run another Super Bowl this year, the Chiefs would probably be the team to go to.

It’s just a waiting game now, and we’ll see where he decides to go not too long from now.  While we wait, here are some details on why OBJ is suing NIKE.

Odell Beckham Jr. has filed a lawsuit against Nike on Monday claiming the athletic footwear and apparel company failed to “honor its commitments” in their latest deal, resulting in the loss of more than $20 million.

The lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, alleged that the issue arose in 2017 when Beckham’s previous contract was nearing expiration, at which point the Super Bowl champion had considered making the jump to Adidas.

“When Nike exercised its right of first refusal to match the Adidas offer and not only kept me as a Nike Athlete, but also made me one of their Brand Icons — my dream had been fulfilled,” Beckham said in a statement, also obtained by the outlet.

But the free agent claimed that the deal wasn’t the same and the new contract reportedly made it “​​nearly impossible for him to trigger very valuable extensions of the deal.”

“Unfortunately, Nike did not honor its commitments. Throughout our partnership, I have kept my promise and fulfilled my obligations to the brand. I am extremely disappointed that I’ve had to take these measures to ensure Nike fulfills their obligations and promises,” Beckham’s statement continued.
