Count Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter as one authority who not only doesn’t believe Odell Beckham Jr. blowing off Giants OTAs is a big deal but also thinks it’s a good idea.
Carter, the former Vikings and Eagles receiver who is serving as a personal trainer and mentor to Beckham, said Friday on “The Herd’’ on FOX Sports Radio that Beckham’s detractors should back off. He, too, guaranteed Beckham was going to be better than Chad Bettis Jersey ever this season, beginning with the Giants’ Week 1 game at Dallas on Sept. 10.
Carter also napalmed the Giants’ coaching and training staff in the process, saying what he’s delivering to Beckham in their personal sessions is more valuable than anything Beckham can get with the Giants at their OTAs.
Carter, who worked with Beckham this week in Los Angeles, also said he never went to minicamps or OTAs as a player and the Giants star doesn’t need to, either.
“Odell has the ability to tap into people like myself and [former 49ers great receiver] Jerry Rice and other people if he’s not at [the team] facility,’’ Carter said. “We can’t go into the Giants facility and help him. The Giants receivers http://www.authenticcoloradorockies.com/Chad-Bettis-Jersey coach [Adam Henry, who was Beckham’s position coach at LSU from 2012-14], he probably thinks he knows more football than me. Odell’s opinion of that is a little bit different. I teach a little differently than the coaches, so he’s getting some different information from me.
“I didn’t go to minicamps and OTAs. We missed them. We would get an agreement with the coach — ‘Coach, when do you need me to be there?’ Randy Moss and those guys came to Florida to train with me.’’
Carter, referring to criticism of Beckham’s absence from the OTAs, said: “This is not something that’s new. It’s because of the boat trip [in Miami with Justin Bieber days before the Giants’ wild-card playoff loss to the Packers]. It’s because of who he is. It’s because of the loss in the playoffs and because the general manager [Jerry Reese] went out and said Odell has to be mature.
“[Reese] didn’t know Odell wasn’t coming to the OTAs and now he’s got to answer questions on comments he made months ago.’’
Carter’s premise was that he can offer Beckham different “position-specific’’ information than the Giants coaching staff. He pointed to the fact former Bears running back Walter Payton, “who was one of the best conditioned athletes ever,’’ ran hills on his own to train “and he wasn’t doing that with the Bears.’’
“Jerry Rice, he brought the fitness level to athletes, especially to football players, to a different level,’’ Carter said. “I modeled my business that I ran, which was a gym, after what Jerry Rice did, because of the position-specific Adeiny Hechavarria Jersey training. Guys like [Cardinals receiver] Larry Fitzgerald has his own trainer who can do more sport-specific stuff.’’
Beckham on Friday remained defiant toward his detractors, indicating he doesn’t have to listen to what head coach Ben McAdoo wants.
He retweeted a Twitter post by Roland Martin of TV One’s NewsOne Now, which read: “I’m sick of folks acting like star athletes must always do what a coach asks. McAdoo wants @OBJ_3 at workouts? See ya when it’s mandatory.”
Beckham also shared a tweet from FOX Sports’ Nick Wright, which read: “While people are on Odell’s [butt] for not being at a voluntary workout, he’s here in LA reaching out to an all time great for extra coaching,” referencing Beckham’s workouts with Carter.
On Wednesday, Beckham responded on Twitter to his critics in the media, writing, “If they don’t have a story these days they’ll make one…’ I might get that tatted #StayTheCourse”
Carter said he doesn’t see a problem with the perception http://www.authenticmiamimarlins.com/Adeiny-Hechavarria-Jersey Beckham has created that he’s not a team player.
“To me, it’s not about the optics,’’ Carter said. “It’s about a guy that reached out to me three years ago I have a relationship with. And, he is among the three best receivers I’ve ever mentored. He is in the same class going into Year 4 as a guy by the name of Randy Moss and Larry Fitzgerald.
“This kid is freaking phenomenal. The sky is the limit, and I believe in 108 days the Dallas Cowboys will see that.’’
