Odell Beckham Jr, one of the NFL’s biggest stars, says the season is not expected to continue as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread across the United States.”Obviously, with everything going on, it just doesn’t make sense why we’re trying to do it,” the Cleveland Browns wide receiver told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published Monday.

More than 155,000 people have died from Covid-19 in the United States and the number of cases is on the rise in large parts of the country. Dozens of players have already opted out of the season over concerns over the virus – including seven from the New England Patriots – and games are scheduled to begin next month.

“We are not ready for the football season. So why are we trying to move forward? It’s obviously value for money, ”Beckham said. “And that bothers me because there has always been this – and I hate to say it like that – but the owners [attitude is], “Oh, we own you guys”, and just kind of injustice that still doesn’t see us as human. I just feel like the season shouldn’t be coming and I’m ready for it not to happen and I wouldn’t mind not having it.
