Gi­ants fine Beck­ham Jr. for ESPN com­ments

Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS - — Pat Leonard, New York Daily News

NEW YORK — Pat Shur­mur and the New York Gi­ants fined wide re­ceiver Odell Beck­ham Jr. for his con­tro­ver­sial com­ments in last week’s ex­plo­sive ESPN in­ter­view, ac­cord­ing to a league source.

That’s on top of Shur­mur rip­ping Beck­ham Oct. 5 when the first ex­cerpts of Beck­ham’s in­ter­view were re­leased ques­tion­ing his team­mates’ heart and Eli Man­ning’s abil­ity. And the coach also had Beck­ham apol­o­gize to the team on Oct. 6.

FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer re­ported Beck­ham’s fine on Thurs­day night.

Pub­licly last Fri­day, Shur­mur was care­ful to barely re­veal any of his real feel­ings on the mat­ter, but af­ter Sun­day’s loss in Carolina he was clearly fu­ri­ous both with Beck­ham and the fact that the new of his rep­ri­mand of Beck­ham got out.
