OBJ plans to keep wearing $190K watch in games

Odell Beckham's $350,000 Richard Mille watch isn't going anywhere. Football games will be no exception.

"I'll still be wearing it", Beckham said Tuesday.

"I'll still be wearing it", he said, adding, "The same way I wear it every day, at practice, I go here, I go there". The Browns have enough problems as it is already, they can't exactly afford to have their star wide receiver mad over a watch.

NFL spokesman Michael Signora said earlier in the week that while the league has no rules prohibiting jewelry, it does have a policy "prohibiting hard objects".

It's unclear if the National Football League fined Beckham for wearing the watch or if they just told him to stop wearing it, but going forward if he continues to wear it, the National Football League will probably start to fine him.

"You got to look into the rule book". As reported by Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com, Beckham Jr. says the league wouldn't care if it was another player or if the watch had a lower value. "But people have knee braces on that are hard and made out of metal and you don't see them taping it up, no jewelry on, so I'm good". Everyone has jewelry on.

Beckham said Tuesday he plans on wearing the flashy timepiece again and said he believes if it was any other player - or if the item would have been $20 instead of costing a six-figure fortune - it would not have been an issue, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. "That's just my life. If it wasn't the watch, it would've been the way that I tie my shoes". The semantics are strong on this one. At what point is plastic considered hard?
