In Beckham's short but well-documented professional career, the Giants have faced the Cardinals just once: Week 2 of 2014, during which Beckham was sidelined with an injury. But that didn't keep the flamboyant receiver from showing respect for and heaping praise on the five-time Pro Bowl defensive back, who claims the same school -- LSU -- as Beckham.
"(Peterson is) by far one of the best in the game, hands down," Beckham continued. "He's going to follow you from your house, to his house, to the sidelines, to the cricket field."
The cricket comment was a nice touch and proof that Beckham is adept at playing to his chosen crowd. It was also perhaps the most noteworthy part of his European odyssey, which included photos with fans and standing on top of an SUV while adoring masses chanted his name (all of which was compiled in a highlight reel, set to the musical stylings of Future on OBJ's Instagram page).
