Bitcoin Bummer for OBJ

Covino & Rich are talking about some of the worst contracts and investments in the history of sports and Odell Beckham Jr.’s 2021 contract, paid in bitcoin, is taking center stage. As the value of cryptocurrency continues to plummet, OBJ’s decision to forego a normal cash payment looks more and more foolhardy. It may not be the worst decision ever made by an athlete, but it’s certainly in the discussion.

Rich Davis: “He paid to play in the NFL last year!”

Steve Covino: “If OBJ still has that bitcoin, his 2021 season which ended in a Super Bowl title, cost him almost $200,000!”
