Is Odell Beckham Jr the most over-hyped free agent? Skip Bayless certainly thinks so

Earlier in the day, the host of the popular Fox Sports show “Undisputed” and NFL pundit Skip Bayless took to Twitter to share an unpopular opinion. According to him, Odell Beckham Jr is not the same player as the media is painting him to be. He is past his prime and according to Bayliss, OBJ is the “most overhyped free agent ever.”

“Poor Odell has become the most overhyped free agent ever. No way he can live up to this. So many injuries have robbed him of too much electricity. Shadow of his rookie self. Pregame shows are better than games. Might have some early “spite” production. Won’t change a team’s life,” tweeted Bayliss.

Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver DK Metcalf recently made an interesting revelation. Speaking to Pardon My Take Podcast, Metcalf revealed he would love to have OBJ on his team but warned that NFC is harder than AFC.

“Yeah, I would love to have Odell on our team. That’s like my big brother,” Metcalf replied when quipped about Beckham Jr. “But yeah, the NFC is hard. You gotta come to play every week. But we gonna take it one week at a time, man. I’m not looking forward to the two weeks down the road. I’m looking forward to the Packers and playing that game at Lambeau,” he added.
