Odell Beckham Jr. and Josh Norman have only shared an NFL field together once. But they already have perhaps the NFL's most high-profile personal rivalry. With Norman moving from the Panthers to the Redskins, a divisional rival of the Giants, the fireworks are cracking even before training camp starts.
"I mean it's a smart business move for him," Beckham told GQ.
Beckham adds: "The reason that he's become so relevant is because of me."
On Thursday evening, ThePostGame caught up with Norman and asked him if Odell Beckham made him famous.
"Well, that one-handed catch made him famous," Norman says. "I've been to the NFL Championship Game. I don't think he's been to the last two or if he's went to one period. I don't know. Like I said, five-75 speaks volumes. I don't think it speaks volumes for him."
After the Panthers rescinded their franchise tag on Norman on April 20, he became an unrestricted free agent. Two days later, he signed a five-year, $75 million deal with the Redskins. Norman is now the highest-paid cornerback in the league, and tied for being the 33rd highest-paid player in the league.
As for his first reunion with Beckham, Norman has the date circled.
"Am I ready?" he asks. "I don't know. You might want to ask him that question because September 25th is gonna be a big game. A big game, so we'll see, man."
Sept. 25, 1 p.m. in East Rutherford. There will be trash-talking.
The second meeting may have even more implications for the teams' postseason goals: Norman and the Redskins host the Giants in Landover in Week 17.
Norman spoke to ThePostGame at the Roc Nation Summer Classic Charity Basketball Tournament, presented by CC Sabathia's PitCCh In Foundation, Robinson Cano"'s RC22 Foundation, Miguel Cotto's Fundacion El Angel and Nick Jonas' Beyond Type 1.
In lighter news, Norman saluted his Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, who won their first College Baseball national championship three weeks ago.
"I watched it in LA," he says. "I wanted to be there, but the craziest part about it is I couldn't because I have so much going on, so I just gave them my big support from far away and I did a little video shoot at Venice Beach and shout out to them. Anything you can do at Coastal Carolina that can be big like that ... that's my school."
Coastal Carolina beat Beckham's LSU in the Super Regional in Baton Rouge. If Norman needs any more chirping material, he can use that upset to his advantage.
