The Giants will be practicing in Cincinnati next week, and for Odell Beckham Jr. that means he gets to hang with his buddy.

"Oh man, I can't wait!" the Giants receiver said when asked about getting to see former LSU teammate and current Bengals running back Jeremy Hill. "We Facetime and we talk pretty much every day. Just clown with him and just ready to get to see him go to work. There's just something about one of your boys, one of your brothers that you've played with, watching him do his thing, it makes you want to do your thing. So I'm definitely excited to see him. Best of luck to him."

Beckham will also get to have that experience later in the season when the Giants play the Dolphins. Their roster has former LSU receiver Jarvis Landry, the player Beckham used to compete against in practices while making one-handed catches. Landry and Beckham are said to have set the stage for some kind of catching competition during pregame warmups in Miami on Dec. 14.

"I talked to Jarvis [on Thursday]," Beckham said. "We talk about it all the time. It's just going to be something we always dreamed of, if not being on the same team, being on the same field in the NFL is a blessing enough. So I'm looking forward to it, looking forward to seeing Jeremy and Jarvis. Just really looking forward to this season."
