Jersey 'just the beginning' of Hall of Fame, Odell Beckham Jr. hopes

Odell Beckham Jr. seemed genuinely humbled at having the jersey he wore for his famous one-handed catch against the Cowboys on display in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But, he also hinted that there could be more of his gear - and maybe eventually a bust - headed to Canton.

"What an honor for it to be in there," he said. "It's definitely something to be proud of, but it's just the beginning for me."

Beckham said that while the Hall of Fame asked for and received the jersey, he kept the red and white gloves he wore for the catch.

"They didn't ask for the gloves," he said. "I guess they just got the jersey."

Those gloves, he said, are at home. He'll give them and others to his mother and father. It's easy to imagine a wall at the Beckham house quickly looking like the wall of Willie Mays Hayes from the movie "Major League" that was festooned with batting gloves from each of his stolen bases.

Beckham usually trades his jersey with an opposing player after the game. Against the Cowboys, that apparently did not happen. Good thing for the Hall of Fame.

"Right," Beckham said.
