Multiple NFL analyst are reporting that Carolina Panthers football players taunted former LSU and current New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. with a baseball bat during pregame warmups on Sunday. Per NorthJersey.com
quote:

A source told The Record that, on the field before the game, Carolina cornerback Josh Norman had a baseball bat during pre-game warmups and was swinging it while walking on the sideline. The perception was that he sending message to Beckham.

I’m told there were comments also made in the direction of Beckham and other players about how the Panthers were coming to “beat the s**t out of him.”

Is anyone going to bring up the fact that josh Norman bodyslammed obj after the whistle. That bodyslam started everything. I mean lets be serious a body slam can cause a concussion from your head bouncing off the turf, spine/back injury, hip or tailbone injury. Where's the outrage at josh. Also he's been bitching since the game, how can josh be such a crybaby, he wanted this to be a ufc fight, hence the bodyslam, but then he wants to cry when it became a ufc fight. Obj did go a bit overboard but honestly he's a 2nd year player that was hyped because this game had playoff implications, along with all the talk about him vs josh Norman, then panthers players including Norman had the bat preface, calling obj a fig etc... Then he/they threatened to end obj's career. All these pregame emotions carry into the game where on the 4th play obj roasted Norman and then dropped an easy td. With all those pregame emotions then dropping an easy td he must've been beside himself. Then on the very next play Norman bodyslams obj after the whistle while obj didn't even have the ball and no penalty was called. So if I'm obj I'm thinking these fricks threatened to end my career now Norman ufc bodyslams me, I have to protect myself, I have to put this dirty frick in his place, he wants a fight he's gonna get it. Obj is 6ft 198lbs by nfl standards he's small, and if a small get lets himself get slammed and doesn't retaliate the beating will continue, so he took it to Norman and didn't stop, but everything obj did was Inbetween the whistle, Norman was after the whistle dirty, and still three days later and no one even mentions the fact that Norman started everything with the pregame and then the slam. He still hasn't even been fined, this is a pattern for Norman he's started shot with every WR he's gone up against. And Norman seems to have forgotten if obj didn't drop those 2 catches obj's stats are 8 catches for 150 yards and 2 tds. Norman didn't defend any passes, he played dirty and still got torched. That's Normans game he's a thug not a db, he is so abnoxious and dirty on and off the field he gets players to make mistakes that doesn't make him a good db, a good db like revis can shut u down all over the field without bodyslams or threats, or bats. That's a great defensive back!

Just wear a pair of headphones, listen to music while you warm up, if an opposing player you dont know on a good personal level comes up to you just turn up the music and ignore him

Not defending the behavior of Odell or Josh Norman, but the Panthers bring these black bats out before every game. You can't consider that some sort of serious threat

It's funny because people say WR's are too soft in this very physical game. Yet, when they play like a "head hunting" safety people question his character. I like what he did, and I am saddened to see so many people fabricate his image in a negative light.

Just like N.O. I guess everyone gets a free pass if the screw over anyone from the boot. The NFL has a "free pass" for anyone to screw over any player or team out of Louisiana without the fear of persecution.

Norman and OBJ talked trash, Norman got away with a cheap body slam in front of an official, and OBJ got a nice skull rocker block on Norman. Panthers won, game over, everyone go about your lives.

This "outrage" is stupid. Nobody (including OBJ) *really* thought the Panthers were going to beat anybody down with a baseball bat during pregame.
