New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham was on the ESPN panel before the Super Bowl on Sunday and was questioned about the boat trip he and some of his teammates took in Miami that the media said was a reason why the Giants were upended by the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Wildcard game.
Beckham echoed Victor Cruz‘s sentiments from earlier this week, saying he may have some “regrets” over the trip, per the New York Daily News.
“Kind of going off what he said, I seen his statement and I talked to him about it,” Beckham said. “And I think what he was saying was all the extra attention and distraction it caused for our team and our organization, I don’t think any of us wanted that, and that’s where the regrets may, may lie.
“But as far as going back on it, you live and you learn. You make decisions and you have to live with the consequences, and you have to be willing to do that. And that was the case. It’s something that I’ll be able to look back on in life, and you just grow from it. And that’s all you can do. You have to take it and move on. I can’t sit back and keep continuing to dwell on it. Otherwise, I wouldn’t really be living life.”
Beckham also downplayed hole in the Packers’ locker room wall — something which was also blamed on Beckham.
“Honestly, I didn’t sit there — I’ve learned my lesson about that — so I didn’t sit there and punch a wall, man. It was literally, it was a piece of paper, sheet rock, and uh, it just happened.”
