The New York Giants and the NFL are aware of a leaked video involving wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. that appears to show him smoking a blunt next to a woman cutting lines of cocaine with a credit card..
The footage, posted on social media Friday during his Nike-sponsored trip to Europe, shows OBJ reclined on a bed next to a pizza holding what looks like a brown cigar, while a woman next to him sits over a credit card and tray full of white powdery substance aligned in rows.
Fans were quick to notice that the video is likely old, based on some recent tattoos that were not yet present on his arm.
ESPN has been unable to confirm where or when the video were filmed, but reports that the Giants and the NFL acknowledged that they know of its existence.
“We’re aware of the video, but we don’t have any comment beyond that,” a Giants team spokesman told ESPN Friday night.
Meanwhile, marijuana remains banned by the NFL’s substance abuse policy. Beckham is not known to have ever failed a test or to have at any point entered the league’s substance abuse program.
