Thanks to his near instant celebrity, and status as the New York Giants brightest star, whenever Odell Beckham speaks, it is news.

Beckham has worked in every practice this season -- a far cry from last year when he missed almost all of the preseason and the first four regular season games.

"It's a lot more fun to be out there than when you watch, I can tell you that — that's for sure," Beckham said. "It's been cool just being able to go through practices and start to recover, and you feel what it feels like to go through these practices. Just being able to get back out there each and every day and take something new from every day — learn from it. It's been fun."

Beckham talked about his expectations and excitement for the 2015 season and his role in the the Giants' offense along with all the other talented weapons at Eli Manning's disposal. He also talked about  the upcoming scrimmages against the Cincinnati Bengals and the opportunities those joint practices will provide. And of course Beckham was asked bout the hamstring issues that disrupted his offseason.

Perhaps the best moment, the 'clarification' of the rules regarding a reception that the league has provided in the wake of Dez Bryant's non-catch in the playoffs. Odell's interpretation: "Don't let the ball hit the ground."
