Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines for your Wednesday morning.

Odell Beckham says Cam Newton is "one of my favorite players in the league"

Beckham made an appearance on the NFL Network for a segment called "4 Downs," in which the Giants wide receiver was asked four different questions proposed by fans. The first question asked was if Beckham would beat the Panthers quarterback in a dance battle. The Big Blue receiver laughed, but did commend Newton's ability to have fun on the field, which has been a huge element in Carolina's so-far undefeated record.

"He's probably one of my favorite players in the league," Beckham said of Newton. "Just from as far as the way he plays, his swag, his personality. He's been that way since Auburn -- he just has fun. You know, not everybody likes that, but to him, as long as he's having fun, it doesn't matter so I respect his mind, his mentality and his game.

"I don't know, we'll have to see on the dance floor," Beckham deadpanned.

Beckham also addressed the rumors of Les Miles possibly being fired. After it was confirmed that Miles would be staying at LSU, Beckham said he was very happy that his former coach would remain with the Tigers.

"I'm actually very happy he came back," Beckham said. "He's one of the top recruiters year in and year out, and they have tremendous talent down there each and every year ... I'm looking forward to what they'll accomplish next season."
