Odell Beckham Jr. may have been fined by the New York Giants for his comments in an ESPN interview and called in front of the team to explain them, but he isn’t apologizing for them.

“I’m sorry that I’m not going to apologize for my heart,” Beckham said via Facebook’s Uninterrupted series I Am More: OBJ. “I don’t feel like you deserve an apology for one, and I don’t feel like it’s necessary for me to apologize for how I feel.”

Beckham also said he feels as though he lives in a “fish bowl” and that no matter what he says or does “it’s just always a problem.”

“The things that I said, could the approach have been a different way? Could it have been handled a different way? I think when you look back on anything and there’s things that are conflicting or things that get mixed up you always look back and be like ‘it could have been handled a different way,’ “ he said.

“I know it may have came off however it came off but my message was to be nothing more than encouraging everybody to be their very best.”

The New York Giants Can't Hide Eli Manning

Here’s a fun thing to think about: Has an offense with the quality of skill players that the New York Giants possess ever looked this bad? This is a team that lines up one of the best wide receivers in football, a rookie running back who treats defenders like bad guys in a Kung Fu movie, and a big, fast tight end who is perfectly suited for a modern NFL offense. And yet this team is scoring just 19.5 points per game, and got blown out 34-13 last night. The problem here is Eli Manning.
