Odell Beckham Jr. takes a shot at former New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman during the 2022 NFL Draft.
Odell Beckham Jr. does not think former New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman was the least bit good at his job.
Gettleman may have had a good run building the Carolina Panthers previously, but his stint in the Big Apple was nothing short of disastrous. From taking a running back No. 2 overall in the modern NFL era, to reaching on Daniel Jones at No. 6 to replace Eli Manning because he played his college ball for noted Manning whisperer David Cutcliffe at Duke was embarrassing. This was a bad time.
As Beckham lives his best life as a Super Bowl champion, he has all the confidence in the world to say Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com and Clem from Barstool Sports did a better job of running a Twitter thread about the 2022 NFL Draft and the Giants selecting Kayvon Thibodeaux at No. 5 overall than Gettleman did at any point running the once-proud Giants franchise into the ground.
Odell Beckham Jr. trolls Dave Gettleman for being a bad general manager
While it would be infinitely more constructive for all parties involved to be looking at the bright futures ahead of them, the Gettleman Giants were an absolute tire fire that may deserve its own 30 for 30 one day. No one outside of the Tri-State Area would ever watch it, but it would best encapsulate what exactly went wrong for one of the most stable organizations in all of football.
But what started this entire conversation was Stapleton being totally convinced that Beckham will return to the Giants at some point in his career, strictly to take some of the shine off Thibodeaux. The hope is for the former Oregon standout to be some variation of Lawrence Taylor, Michael Strahan or even Justin Tuck in the trenches. A Jason Pierre-Paul with all 10 fingers, if you will.
New York then followed up the Thibodeaux selection two picks later by getting Alabama offensive tackle Evan Neal at No. 7. At one point, these guys were candidates to potentially go No. 1 overall to Jacksonville. For now, they are expected to be pillars of a reshaped Giants organization. While Beckham was an unrivaled star, the Giants are at their best when they dominate in the trenches.
Now that Gettleman is out of the building, there is a chance Beckham could return to New York.
