[Watch] Odell Beckham Jr. and Josh Norman Trade Shots on Twitter

From the field to social media, these two don't get along.

Published March 27th

Odell Beckham Jr. and Josh Norman still can't stand each other.

Ever since OBJ, arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL, launched himself at Norman, arguably the league's best cornerback, for a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit last December, there's been bad blood brewing between the football stars.

And it looks like they're more than willing to pick up from that game, which landed Beckham a one-game suspension.

Appearing on ESPN's SportNation on Friday, Norman was asked to describe Beckham in just one word. The Carolina Panthers cornerback's response about the New York Giants wideout? "OK."

Well, Beckham was either watching the show himself or heard about the remarks pretty quickly because he took to his Twitter account and fired the following response that same Friday, moments after Norman's jab at him.

Under an hour later, Norman tweeted back at Beckham, saying: "@Obj_3 As your boy @Drake would say "trigger finger turn to Twitter finger's" huh? I'm not Guna sub Tweet you Ima @ You. So wassup?"

Norman since deleted the tweet, but not before various media outlets screen-grabbed it, like Bleacher Report.

What makes this so intriguing is these two could very well be the best at their respective positions and they've already scrapped on the field and now off via social media. The NFL powers that be need to make a Giants-Panthers rematch so we can see Beckham and Norman go head-to-head one more time.

Until we can get our popcorn ready for that, though, more tweets and online dragging aren't out of the question at this point.
