news / 08.07.2017 Odell Beckham and NY Giants Break Out In Locker Room Dance Superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. didn't need an end zone to display his dancing prowess this weekend in the New York Giants' locker room.
Beckham and many of his teammates showed off their slick moves in several recent Snapchat videos, which have since been saved in cyberspace lore.
The Giants players danced to DJ Casper's Cha Cha Slide and several other songs.
One of the videos begins with a shirtless Beckham dancing in front of the other Giants.
The original footage came from Landon Collins, Orleans Darkwa, B.J. Goodson and Roger Lewis.
"I've definitely heard that there's a certain personality that a linebacker has," Goodson told the Giants team website last week. "I bring that aura of...just people want to be around a middle linebacker. There's just a certain feeling of wellness being around a middle linebacker. Just making sure everybody is in the right position, making sure the other 10 guys are comfortable and ready to do their jobs, I embrace it."
Another video last week showed more dancing, including some dad-like moves from Giants quarterback Eli Manning.
"I guess that's the last generation,'' Manning told SiriusXM NFL Radio, via the New York Post.
Manning said Trick Daddy's Take It To Da House is "my song."
"That's my jam, I just couldn't hold back. I was just kind of messing around, saying, 'This is how I dance. I'm staying right here, this is as extreme as it gets.' Just kinda messing around with some of the guys. Not knowing...I guess you got to assume you're being watched at all times," Manning told SiriusXM.
Wayne Gallman, Stansly Maponga, Donte Deayon, Romeo Okwara, Duke Ihenacho, Corbin Bryant and Eli Apple are also spotted in the videos.
The Giants have practice at 10:55 a.m. Tuesday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, N.J. New York faces the Pittsburgh Steelers in their first preseason game on Friday at MetLife Stadium.
The Giants recently released their first official depth chart. Goodson is the team's starting middle linebacker, while Lewis is a back up wide receiver and Darkwa is the third string running back.
