When New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham turned a December matchup against Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman into something you might see on WWE, his actions earned him a suspension from the league.

According to teammate and quarterback Eli Manning, Beckham's demonstrations that day were not indicative of the player he has become.


Beckham's melee with Norman wasn't his first run in with a player or players from another team. During his rookie season in 2014, Beckham was involved in a brawl during a late season game against the St. Louis Rams.

Manning thinks players should have fun out there, but he just thinks it should be limited to when they make a big play.

Manning was of course asked about Cam Newton, and although Manning is not one to celebrate much on the field, he has no issues with what Newton or any quarterback does after a big play.

It may be taking Beckham a little longer than Manning to embrace the New York limelight, but having Eli on his side will help him evolve as a player both on and off the field.
