news / 12.11.2016 Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. swaps jerseys with Ezekiel Elliott, tells Cowboys RB to 'Keep eating!'
Say what you will about the Giants-Cowboys rivalry on the field, Odell Beckham Jr. has shown a particular respect for Dallas off of it.
After New York handed Dallas their second loss of the season, Beckham and Ezekiel Elliott swapped jerseys.
From the looks of it Beckham signed the jersey:
"The youngest doin it!
Before the two teams met on the field this week, Beckham praised Zeke and Dak Prescott.
"These young men have come into the league on an 11-1 team and they're doing it. Up for MVP," He said, according to SportsDay's Jon Machota. "Both up for rookie of the year. It's been a phenomenal, phenomenal season for them.
"Zeke was a guy who I was talking to before the season just because I know where he's at and what he's going to be going through, and I've seen it already with what he's already gone through. So just trying to give him an understanding of how everything works. I love it. I love to see Zeke out there celebrating.
"I love to see Dak out there with a smile. I played Dak in college. I've known him. We go back a little bit. So it really is great to see these guys doing their thing. You just want to minimize that this Sunday."
The praise didn't stop there for Beckham. He talked up Dez Bryant, whom he called "a friend of mine, like a brother of mine."
"I'm just happy to see him back to going up, snagging passes, being excited," Beckham said. "They've got something special going on over there, and I know he's very happy to be a part of it.
"I think that's what makes him the happiest, catching passes and winning games."
