Odell Beckham Jr. has once again been in the news throughout the week. The Giants' mercurial star had himself a big afternoon against the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday, catching nine passes for 79 yards and two touchdowns, but it was his post-touchdown behavior drawing all the attention.
After the first of his two scores, Beckham pantomimed a dog urinating on a fire hydrant as his way of celebrating the fact that he'd caught a pass in the end zone.
Giants owner John Marato let them know how unhappy he was with Beckham's behavior, stating that the Giants will handle the situation internally. (What you always want to do when handling a situation internally is make sure the media knows about it.) Mara and Beckham then had a about it on Thursday.

After all that came the obvious development we've been waiting for ever since Beckham got down on hands and knees and lifted his leg: Beckham was fined $12,154 by the NFL.

Don't worry, though. Odell says he has some better celebrations in store moving forward.
