Even Jerry Rice is amazed by Odell Beckham Jr's one-handed catches

New, comments

Jerry Rice is the greatest wide receiver of all time (breaking news), but he can still be impressed by the young receivers of the present era. Rice and Michael Irvin are the two team captains for Sunday's Pro Bowl, and they are getting a chance to rub elbows with the current generation of wide receivers.

On Friday, Rice got a chance to check out his team in action, and he saw Odell Beckham Jr. make one of his amazing one-handed catches. I don't know that anybody has a "patented" one-handed catch, but OBJ has made this grab in practice sessions numerous times. He does not make quite as many during games, but we've seen plenty of his amazing catches. I think it is safe to say we'll probably see him go up for one or two one-handed catches during Sunday's Pro Bowl.

Jerry Rice's reaction to this catch certainly says plenty. Rice remains the G.O.A.T., but even he can be impressed!
