The Dallas Cowboys want Odell Beckham Jr. signed despite Odell being kicked off a plane on Thanksgiving weekend and being called ‘aggressive, rude’ for apparently drifting into and out of consciousness.
According to a Miami Police statement, flight attendants called 911 after they feared Beckham Jr. (30) was seriously ill.
According to Beckham’s attorney, he did not deserve to get kicked off the plane, but was instead the victim a ‘overzealous flight attendant’
The Cowboys don’t seem to be concerned, regardless of the outcome. Beckham is now completing his recovery from an ACL tear sustained while playing in Super Bowl for the LA Rams. He was also signed by a few other teams.
When asked about Beckham’s latest situation, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy stated that he had not been involved in the conversation.
“But, I believe that based on my understanding, we are moving forward at a rapid pace.”

Beckham used Twitter Monday to dismiss further suggestions of wrongdoing following the Miami incident.
He replied to a Twitter user who was on the same plane and called him ‘unruly and responsive’ in a video of him walking off the plane with: ‘This looks unruly and responsive.
‘I didn’t kno (sic) I couldn’t fall asleep before take off when I boarding first and the flight was delayed 30 mins.
“I also had a flight to catch when my plane landed in LA. It’s simple shxt. I feel tired before I can take off.

‘He Responding that he was in bed, he said that he would get up and put on his seatbelt. He It was too late. He was informed that he had to get off his plane, or everyone would have deplaned.

He stated that sleeping on a plane shouldn’t be considered a reason to cancel a flight. “If they could get him to wake up when the plane returned to the gate, they could have asked him to wear his seatbelt.”
