Odell Beckham Jr. is an American football player and his estimated net worth is around 5$ million.

Early life

Odell Beckham Jr. was born on November 5, 1992 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was always very athletic and during his high school years he played football, soccer and ran track. He was an all-around athlete but his love for football overruled.

His mother was also an excellent athlete, and in her younger days she used to run track. When she got pregnant with Odell in 1991, she had to quit her preparations for the Olympic games, and concentrate on her family. She later started working as a coach for the college track team.

During his college years, he played for the LSU and in 2014 he joined the NFL draft. New York Giants have chosen him together with 12 other players.

Professional career

He started his professional career in 2014 as a rookie in the New York Giants. His first game was against Atlanta Falcons when he scored his first touchdown. In 2014 he got a Pro Football Writers NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.

He plays on the position of a wide receiver, and in his impressive career he has broken down several records. He was awarded with Paul Hornung Award for his extreme skill as a receiver and for his precise returns.

The contract extension with the Giants was signed for 10.4$ million. His annual income is around 2.3$ million which makes highly prospective young player. In 2014 he was fined for his behavior on the court, and he also got into a fight several times with his teammates.

Besides his great talent and skill, Odell is also known as being unapologetic and straight forward. Being so, he caught the media’s attention together with many sponsorships and endorsements. From his team contract and endorsements he is currently worth around 5$ million, which is not bad at all.

In only 2 years Odell’s net worth has gone up significantly so we can only expect more from this talented player. His market price is somewhere around 15$ million, but it seems as though he won’t be transferring from his team just yet.

For a single game in a regular season Odell receives around 60.000$ and during SuperBowl season, his salary per game go down to around 40.000$.

To maintain his connection to the “real world” and those in need he often gives donations to charity organizations and his recent donation was to the Fresh Air Fund. Beckham currently holds the record for being the fastest person to catch 200 career receptions.

In his career so far he has scored 35 receiving touchdowns and had 288 receptions. Many have speculated about his stay in the team because of his bad behavior, but the Giants decided to keep this NFL superstar for a while longer.

In 2016 he got a fine for his dancing celebration after the game with one of his team’s rivals. The fine was staggering 12.000$. But, if we take his net worth in consideration this won’t hit him too hard.

Personal life

Odell is currently single but in the past years he was connected to many famous women. The most recent rumor is that this NFL superstar is dating a 20-year old actress, Zendaya. The couple was spotted after the Grammys, but she denied all of the rumors and explained that their encounter was only a coincidence.

He has also been linked to Demi Lovato in the past years and to model Bella Hadid after she broke up with her boyfriend Weekend. Perhaps this was only a rebound for Bella, since Odell is now single and one of the most eligible bachelors out there.

Odell is very active on his social media platforms and has many followers. He often shares images from his private life but also spotlights from his latest games. Besides football, Odell loves music and dancing.  His father was a starting runner at the same University as Odell and his stepfather is a gold medalist Derek Mills.
