Stephon Gilmore, Odell Beckham Jr. renew rivalry over Instagram

New, comments

Remember when Stephon Gilmore and Odell Beckham, Jr. feuded last year? Apparently, that's still happening

In case you may have forgotten, things got a bit heated between Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore and New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. in a Week 4 tilt last October (which the Giants won, 24-10). Evidently, that little feud is ongoing, as things seemed to re-escalate between the two over Instagram this weekend, as captured by Ryan Talbot of Scout.com on Saturday.

As noted in Talbot's article, the posts between the two players were deleted shortly after being posted, but were captured by Twitter user Mike King:

Fans may remember that Beckham had a pedestrian game against the Bills, with five catches for 38 yards on 12 targets, and was accused of punching multiple Bills players during the game. In post-game interviews, Gilmore went on record referring to Beckham as a "prima donna," and has repeatedly stated that Sammy Watkins is the better receiver of the two.

The Bills and Giants do not meet in the regular season this year, but they do play against each other in Week 2 of the 2016 preseason. As noted by Talbot, the Gilmore-Beckham matchup could make for appointment viewing during an otherwise forgettable preseason contest.
