Odell Beckham Jr. believes he knows the way to Tom Brady’s heart.
Ahead of Sunday’s game in Foxboro, the Browns receiver revealed he has a special gift for the Patriots quarterback, signifying Brady’s status as one of the legends of the sport.
“I have a pair of cleats for him made out of — I hope no animals were really harmed — but made out of goat hair,” Beckham said, according to the Beacon Journal. “[I have a pair] for me, too, but I’m gonna give them to him because he’s one of the GOATs, and he’s more the GOAT than I am.”
Brady, 42, and Beckham, 26, have much in common beyond their play-making abilities, as both are fans of specific footwear, namely Brady with his Ugg slippers, and Beckham’s custom cleats.
And while Beckham has “nothing but love and respect for Brady,” it appears the feeling about Beckham is mutual in New England.
“He’s a dynamic player, and we played against him before. He’s a tough guy to handle. I have a ton of respect for him as a football player,” coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday.
Though Beckham will be on the opposite sideline Sunday afternoon, Brady does have a new weapon at his disposal: former Falcons receiver Mohamed Sanu.
