NFL Rulebreaker Odell Beckham Wore $350,000 Richard Mille Watch During Game
During the Browns' loss on Sunday, Beckham rocked a limited-edition Richard Mille watch
The NFL has decided it’s time to have a chat with Odell Beckham Jr. about the watch he wore in the Browns season-opener on Sunday.
During Cleveland’s 43-13 beatdown by the Tennessee Titans, the Browns star was spotted wearing a limited-edition Richard Mille watch on the field. Originally priced at $160,000, the watch now sells for $350,000, as it was limited to just 30 pieces.

Sunday’s game was not the first time Beckham has worn the special timepiece on the field as it can clearly be seen in photos taken both before, during and after games during the preseason.
But, apparently, it was the first time the NFL took notice of it, and a league spokesman said the matter will be addressed with Beckham and the Browns, according to ESPN.
Though the NFL rulebook doesn’t have any clauses which prohibit jewelry, “projecting objects” (metal or other hard objects that project from a player’s person or uniform) and “uncovered hard objects” (objects and substances, including but not limited to casts, guards or braces for hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, hip, thigh, knee, and shin) are banned.
Against the rules or not, it’s probably not the best idea to wear someone else’s college tuition or house down payment on your wrist during an NFL game.
“I was not aware he had the watch on,” Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said Monday. “As long as they’re going to enforce [the rules] with everyone, I’m fine with it. Let’s just make sure we get it enforced with everybody.”
We’ll see what Beckham, who caught seven passes for 71 yards on Sunday, has on his wrist when the Browns play at the New York Jets on Monday night.
