Odell Beckham Jr. Gets Big Legal Victory
Odell Beckham now has another reason to celebrate. The star receiver recently signed a deal to rejoin the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens. At the same time, Beckham can celebrate a legal victory. According to TMZ, Beckham can now move forward with his case against Nike. Nike requested the case be tossed out. However, a judge has ruled that the case can move forward. The judge’s decision is massive news for Beckham and his legal team.
According to the report, Beckham is accusing the brand of not paying him millions of dollars that he claims he deserves. Earlier when the case was filed, Beckham issued a statement on the situation at the time of the case being filed. “Unfortunately, Nike did not honor its commitments. Throughout our partnership, I have kept my promise and fulfilled my obligations to the brand. I am extremely disappointed that I’ve had to take these measures to ensure Nike fulfills their obligations and promises.” The judge not dismissing is a huge step in the right direction for Beckham and his legal team. But it doesn’t mean the fight is over.
Odell Beckham-Nike Court Case Moving Forward
However, fighting a brand giant like Nike might not end well. But for now, Beckham can celebrate the potential chance of getting what he allegedly is owed by the company. Beckham claims the company owes him $20 million. Obviously, anyone who is expecting that much money would fight for justice. Nike’s alleged reasoning for not paying Beckham is that the NFL star violated footwear and glove regulations made by the company.
Beckham has had a big month in terms of his professional life. His recent signing in Baltimore has already sparked talk of a dangerous duo. If the Ravens can bring back frustrated QB Lamar Jackson, the two could be an unstoppable force in the NFL. Although, it has been over a year since Odell Beckham took a snap on a football field. However, the former Pro Bowler is expected to be at 100% at the start of training camp. For the latest news regarding the NFL, stay locked in right here at HNHH.
