What started out as a nightmare of a season actually turned into magic for wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
The Giants 2014 first-round pick, who was slowed by hamstring issues that cost him the first four games of the season, finished with 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns.
He made worldwide headlines with his spectacular fingertip grab for a touchdown against Dallas. He also went on to shatter all kinds of Giants and NFL rookie receiving records.
After the season, Beckham established the first-ever Guinness World Record for the most one-handed catches. He then added to his legend by revealing to reporters at the Pro Bowl that he did all of this despite two torn hamstrings.
“I don’t know about that,” general manager Jerry Reese said. “I think he is trying to be a hero. I don’t think he could play with two torn hamstrings and run fast like that.”
