Odell Beckham Jr. Sues Nike

NFL free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is suing Nike, claiming that the global apparel company has not honored his endorsement deal with the brand, according to legal information reported by The Athletic.

Per the lawsuit, Beckham alleges that Nike is “willfully withholding millions of dollars and inventing excuses not to pay him” and the star wide receiver is seeking more than $20 million in damages.

Beckham Jr. claims that the relationship with Nike began to sour around March 2022 when he was due a payment of around $2.6 million and says that, without warning, the company withheld more than $2 million of the payment.

Beckham Jr. later learned that the payment was withheld because the company said he committed footwear and glove violations when he altered his equipment towards the end of last season, denying that he committed any violations, adding that he was forced to personally customize his cleats because Nike failed to give him cleats that matched the colors of his new team, the Los Angeles Rams.
