Odell Beckham Jr. Reacts to George Pickens’s Incredible Catch
The rookie receiver is one-handed catch on Thursday night resembled Beckham’s memorable catch from 2014.
Steelers rookie wide receiver George Pickens handed in an early entry for catch of the year with a twisting, one-handed grab on Thursday night vs. the Browns that strikingly resembled Odell Beckham Jr.’s iconic 2014 catch.
The 36-yard pass play from quarterback Mitch Trubisky generated quite the social media buzz on Thursday night as the NFL world was mesmerised by the amazing catch.
Many outlets, such as the Amazon Prime broadcast, were quick to compare Pickens’s catch to Beckham Jr.’s, which occurred while the wide out was a rookie with the Giants.
This begs the question: what did Beckham Jr. think of the catch?
The former Giants, Browns and Rams receiver responded to a tweet with a picture of each catch with his original response.
“THIS CATCH IS FILTHY,” Beckham wrote.
It sounds like the Steelers rookie got the seal of approval from the king of acrobatic catches itself.
