CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Browns star Odell Beckham Jr. said he will continue to wear his Richard Mille timepiece in games.
“I’ll still be wearing it,” Beckham said Tuesday. “The same way I wear it every day I go to practice, when I go here, I go there, been wearing it. Take a shower with it on. It’s just on me.”
OBJ sported the luxury watch in the season opener against the Tennessee Titans.
NFL spokesman Michael Signora said earlier in the week that while the league has no rules prohibiting jewelry.
“You got to look into the rule book. It says you can’t wear any hard objects. The watch is plastic,” Beckham said. “People have knee braces on that are hard and made out of metal. You don’t see them taking them off. Everyone has jewelry on. So, I’m good.”

Beckham added Tuesday that he felt the NFL was singling him out.
“If anybody else would’ve worn the watch, if it was a $20 watch, it wouldn’t been no problem,” he said. “That’s just my life. If it ain’t this, it’s something else. If it wasn’t the watch, it would’ve been the way I’d tied my shoes.”
According to Espn, a spokesperson for the watch company said that 500 pieces were made and that Beckham is just a customer and not a brand ambassador.
