Cornerback Josh Norman has tried to attribute the fame of Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to a single catch in prime time from two years ago. Beckham has done much, much more than that.
The latest proof comes from this fact: On Sunday, Beckham became the first receiver in NFL history with at least 80 receptions and 1,000 yards receiving in each of his first three seasons. Given the many great receivers who have played the game, the fact that no one else has done it makes it incredibly impressive.
Beckham also has joined select company by snagging at least 10 touchdown passes and 1,000 receiving yards in his first three seasons. Only John Jefferson and Randy Moss have done that.
While Beckham still has a long way to go, he’s laying the foundation for a memorable career. Possibly a historic one.
