NY’s hole in the wall gang leaves Lambeau frustrated

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese has told star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. that he needs to look at some of his antics on and off the field and be more responsible.

Beckham has been under the microscope for the past week after taking a one-day trip to Miami with some fellow receivers after the regular-season finale with a wild-card playoff game at Green Bay less than a week ago.

Beckham dropped a career-high three passes in the Giants 38-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday, and more controversy followed: It was alleged that he punched a hole in a wall outside the Giants’ locker room at Lambeau Field.

He was not in the locker room at the Giants’ headquarters Monday to answer questions.

Coach Ben McAdoo said he became aware of the hole Monday, but he did not say who did it, adding he takes responsibility.

Reese said the Giants are investigating any potential vandalism and they would hold the appropriate party responsible for the damage.

He did not identify any suspects, but said he had a heart-to-heart talk Monday with Beckham, who was voted second team All-Pro after catching 101 passes this season for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns.

“I see a guy who needs to think about some of the things he does,” Reese said. “Everyone knows he’s a gifted player, but there’s some things he’s done that he needs to look in the mirror and be honest with himself about it.”

Beckham was fined numerous times by the league this season, including more than $72,000 in the first four games of 2016.

“I don’t condone putting holes in the wall,” McAdoo said of the team’s response to the issue.“The team takes full responsibility, I take full responsibility,”
