The New York Giants are aware of but not currently commenting on a troubling video that made it’s way to social media on Friday featuring star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., according to Nicholas Parco of the New York Daily News.
There is a healthy debate taking place over when the video was actually taken and even Beckham Jr. took to Twitter to seemingly refer to the video as old.

In the video, which you can see below, Beckham is allegedly spotted holding a brown cigarette in one hand, lying next to a woman with what appears to be white substance cut into lines and a credit card.
In the audio of the brief clip, Beckham is heard talking to the woman about “trying to get you to sleep with someone…”
Stay tuned as more details are sure to pop up regarding this story.

NFL Denies Golden Tate’s Appeal of Four-Game Ban
The NFL has denied New York Giants’ wide receiver Golden Tate’s appeal regarding a four-game ban and will leave the Giants without a top target for the first part of the 2019 season, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.
Tate, who made his appeal in front of an arbitrator on Tuesday, tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance, leading to the suspension, but Tate claims that the positive result came from prescribed fertility medication.
While Tate will be allowed to participate in all preseason games, and will be able to participate in practice as well, he will not be available to play for the first four games of the season.
Tate will lose $116,176 per game during his suspension, totally $465,000 in salary lost by the time he is eligible to return.
With Tate out, the Giants will lean more on Sterling Shepard, Cody Latimer, and Bennie Fowler to pick up the slack until Tate comes back.
“This past April, during the off-season, my wife and I decided to see a specialist for fertility planning. I started the treatment prescribed to me and just days later I discovered it contained an ingredient that is on the league’s banned substance list,” Tate said, via a statement he issues last month.
“I immediately discontinued use, I reported the situation to the Independent Administrator of the NFL Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances, and I spoke with my coaches and general manager. I did all of this well before a failed test was even confirmed.
“Per NFL protocol, an initial suspension was imminent, but myself and the Giants organization are confident in the facts, and eagerly await my appeal to put this behind us.”
Former NFL Lineman Mitch Petrus Dies of Apparent Heatstroke
Former New York Giants offensive lineman Mitch Petrus has died of what is believed to be a heatstroke, according to the Associated Press.
Petrus, 32, was working outside at his family shop in Arkansas on Thursday, and died later that night at a North Little Rock hospital, per reports.
Petrus was drafted in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Giants and appeared in 17 games over his first two season.
Petrus was a member of the Super Bowl XLVI championship team that defeated the New England Patriots.
Following his release in 2012, Petrus spent time with the Patriots and also the Tennessee Titans, who released him in 2013 marking the end of his career.
Giants’ Kamrin Moore Charged With Assault
New York Giants safety Kamrin Moore has been charged with third-degree aggravated assault, according to NJ.com’s Ryan Dunleavy.
Per the report, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office alleges that Moore punched a woman, stepped on her neck, and knocked her unconscious during a domestic violence incident, causing the woman to suffer “bruising, swelling, and abrasions”.
The filing states that the woman in question was involved in a fight with another female at Moore’s residence. Police say that when the alleged victim fell to the ground, Moore attacked her.
Moore signed with the Giants following his release from the New Orleans Saints, and the team has suspended Moore pending the investigation.
