Odell Beckham’s 100-Yard Throw (Allegedly) Showed His Unreal Arm

Odell Beckham Jr. is one talented freak of an athlete. If his incredible one-handed catch that spurred millions of kids across the world to yell out “OBJ!” in the end zone didn’t tell us that, maybe his cannon of an arm will.

NFL teams like the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns have recognized that, which is why OBJ has two touchdown passes to his name and 144 passing yards on just four career completions.

Beckham Jr. has a better quarterback rating than guys like Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes. After throwing what looked to be a 100-yard bomb, he challenged the two MVPs to a throwing contest.

No. 13 may be a wide receiver but in a midday workout in Los Angeles back in 2019, he showed that maybe he should have been throwing passes in Baton Rouge when he played for LSU.

Even Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden, who’s used to seeing long passes come his way, was impressed by Beckham’s Jr. arm strength.

“That was the whole field!” he said.

It’s hard to tell in the video, but the field may have not been a full-length football field. For The Win reported that this took place at UCLA’s practice field, which is only 70 yards in length.

Still, OBJ throwing a football 70-plus yards is still impressive considering some NFL quarterbacks probably can’t do that.

Afterward, the superstar wideout took to social media to challenge two of the best passers in the league.

Considering Mahomes has thrown a 90-yard bomb before and Rodgers is the king of the Hail Mary at this point, I’d say Odell Beckham Jr. has his work cut out. And Baker Mayfield’s job could be in jeopardy.
