Jimmy Smith tells OBJ “extra hitting and talking won’t fly” Sunday

Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been involved in his share of post-play scuffles and other extracurricular on-field activities.

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith knows this, and on Wednesday he delivered a message to Beckham ahead of Sunday’s Ravens-Giants game.

“All of that extra hitting and talking, that’s not going to fly,” Smith said, per ESPN.com. “That’s not my game. I like to line up and play. Give me your best shot, and I’ll give you mine.

“But if you hit me after the whistle, there’s going to be a fight.”

The Giants have been working to get Beckham more involved in their offense and to move past some of his outbursts and post-play incidents. Beckham caught his first touchdown pass of the season last week vs. the Packers.

The Ravens rank in the top five in the NFL in pass defense but have given up big plays to opposing No. 1 receivers. It’s too early to know if Smith and Beckham will be matched up all day, but Smith said he welcomes the challenge.

“He’s a physical player, and I’m a physical player,” Smith said. “So, I’m pretty sure we’ll have a good matchup.”

Both teams need a win. The Ravens have lost two straight to slip to 3-2. The Giants are 2-3 and in danger of falling well behind the leaders in the NFC East.

    As long as you don’t hit HIM late, you ain’t got nothing to worry about, son.

    Then again, you still won’t, since the refs let defensive backs take liberties with him and never flag them, but as soon as he even looks the opposition’s way, flags fly.

    No worries — Odell has been neutered.

    This clown got torched by Kirk Cousins. Don’t think he’s in any position to be calling shots. Eli and odbj are going to have a field day.

    OBJ gonna read this, his head will explode, they will duct tape it together, just in time for him to get ejected from the game. Gotta love his self destruction. That’s entertainment!

    Right. Instead of letting him make an ass of himself, you’re going to stoop to his level and risk getting unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. Great idea.

    Just don’t draw any dumb flags Jimmy. Be the bigger man.

    Jimmy, seriously???? Maybe stop peeking in the backfield all the time. You let Garcon blow you up last week. Just do your job and start earning some of that money you have stolen.

    Jimmy has only given up 1 touchdown in 5 games.

    And the Ravens are ranked 5th in pass D.

    This should be good.
