OBJ says Gregg Williams ordered Browns players to hurt him

I had players on [the Browns] telling me that that's what he was telling them to do, take me out of the game, and it's preseason. If you can hurt him.

Beckham cited a hit administered by Browns cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun on him during a 2017 preseason game as an example of Williams directing his players to injure him. "Like in preseason, nobody in the National Football League is really out to do stuff like that", Beckham told reporters. But Beckham believes Boddy-Calhoun acted on Williams' instructions. "Other than that I expect the same two-high safety on. You just know who he is, that's the man".

"No, it's exactly, I mean that's exactly what it did", Beckham said.

Gregg Williams is known by many as the face of the Bountygate scandal that rocked the New Orleans several years ago, and apparently the coach has continued with the same tactics even though he was suspended for his role in it. At the time, Beckham was still playing for the Giants while Williams was the DC for the Browns. However, Beckham said he plans to continue rocking the watch.

Williams is scheduled to meet with the media Friday.

"If I was a coach, I would never teach what he teaches, but that's just him and what he does", Beckham said. "There's a lot of extra stuff that went on that people don't know about that I was more frustrated with than anything".

Beckham Jr. logged seven receptions for 71 yards in a 43-13 loss to the Titans on Sunday but did not make it into the end zone. Beckham was quickly ruled out of the game with a sprained ankle that forced him to miss Week 1 of the regular season. I probably came back three weeks too early just because we lost the first game of the season past year, and I felt that pressure to be able to come out there and do what I can to help the team. He suffered a quadriceps tear late last season. "If God didn't bless me the way that I am, I probably would've blown my knee in the preseason game if I couldn't have got my foot off the ground, and that high ankle sprain led to the broken ankle on the left". It's something that, it changed my life forever, so I don't necessarily regret it, of course, I wish it didn't happen but it did.
