New York Giants’ Pro Bowl wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., made the catch of the season - and maybe the best catch ever- earlier this season. But during warmups for the Pro Bowl on Jan. 25, Beckham added another item to the list of amazing things he can do.
Colt’s punter Pat McAfee shared a video on his Instagram account of Beckham kicking a 46-yard field goal, which McAfee says could have been good from 55.
Odell Beckham Jr. from 46 yards out.. Good from about 55... I assume he'll be "randomly" tested… http://t.co/4wNbzUSN0c— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) January 25, 2015
McAfee’s reference to the random test is because earlier in the season, Colt’s field goal kicker Adam Vinatieri kicked a 53-yard field goal and then was randomly selected for a drug test.
Making Beckham’s kick even more impressive is the fact that the NFL made the field goal posts narrower for the Pro Bowl — going from 18 feet 6 inches to 14 feet.
Beckham played soccer when he was younger and was even considered for the U.S. Men’s National Team at one point.
"I played seriously until I was about 13 or 14 then the (U.S.) national team wanted me to try out for it," Beckham said. "It's just so much for a young kid to have to decide that. You'd have to leave your family. But I always played in the premiere leagues. I was 11 playing U-14, stuff like that. I was always playing up."
Well, if Beckham ever decides to stop using those golden hands of his, now we know he could start making money with his feet as well.
