Von Miller: OBJ Should Be The Highest Paid Player Ever

Published

on

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller believes New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. be the highest paid player in the NFL. Even though Odell suffered a season ending injury on Sunday, Odell still was able to make history becoming the fastest player to reach 300 receptions.

Stats like that is way Von believe that he should get paid more than a QB. In a interview with ESPN, Von Miller broke down why OBJ deserves the brinks trunk.

“Odell (Beckham) should be the highest-paid player ever in the National Football League. He should be the highest-paid player ever, regardless of position. That’s just the type of player he is. It doesn’t matter if it’s quarterback, offensive line, receiver. It doesn’t matter. The type of impact that he has on the globe, the type of viewers that he brings — just him as a player. That makes up for him not playing quarterback. So, he’s a once in a lifetime player. Definitely deserving.

“There’s no reason that he won’t come back and be the same type of player. That’s just one of the guys that you invest in. When you get a guy like that, that’s the guy that you invest in, that you want to keep around for his whole career.”

The Giants won’t pay wideout more than a QB. Currently the highest paid QB is Derek Carr after signing his $125M extension with the Raiders.

The Giants can either franchise tag their best player or let him hit the open market.

Dwayne Wade is calling it quits after the 2018 NBA season.

The 12-time All-Star already has three championships is ready to walk away from the game. Wade announced his return in video titled “One Last Dance.”

“This decision is bigger than the game of basketball,” said the soon to be 37-year-old. “This decision don’t have nothing to do with the talent I have in my body. Yeah, I’m not as quick as I used to be. Yeah, I don’t jump as high as I used to. Yeah, I don’t. Yeah, I don’t. Yeah, I don’t.

“A lot of you guys see me is as a three-time champion, a 12-time All-Star, an Olympic gold medalist, y’all didn’t see that kid that no one [saw] because he was small, because he couldn’t shoot as good as everybody else,” he said. “Y’all didn’t see the grind. Y’all didn’t see the tears.”

Wade will return with Miami Heat for his last season. Many fans will forget about his lost tape years in Chicago and Cleveland.

“I still see a player who can contribute heavily if he really wants to,” Heat president Pat Riley said to reporters in July. “If he plays, he’s going to want to do that. We don’t want him back as a place-mat holder or somebody who’s going to be a veteran in the locker room. Dwyane is a great player, a great talent. He’s not the same guy he was in 2006, but he can be a very good player for us and can make a big difference for us. We want him back as a guy that realizes if this is going to be his last year or whatever, we want this to be his best year ever.”

“And truthfully, I do not because the season is long, and it’s more important for me and my family to walk away healthy than to willfully embrace the warrior mentality and limp away too late,” he said in the statement.

“This was an overwhelming decision, but I’m at peace with myself and my family.”
