Odell Beckham Jr. recently won the honor of being the cover athlete for EA Sports’ Madden 16. It’s a prestigious honor that comes with a bit of worry if you believe in jinxes. But no matter what happens from here on in, it’s surely an honor that Beckham won’t soon forget. The question is, how does one get chosen for this honor? Well, I’m not sure, but I’m hoping that his one handed food catching contest with Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had something to do with it:
Well, I guess it only played a small part since the man they call “Gronk” was the winner. I’m just glad he didn’t “Gronk Spike” the eggs.
