Odell Beckham Jr. has never exactly kept his drama to himself.

It’s no secret that OBJ has got an affinity for flash – and former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis thinks it may be hurting his career.

On Monday, Lewis suggested to FS1 that Beckham needed to put a higher power in his life and get back to basics. “Where there is no God, there is chaos,” he said. “I started to see he started to distance himself a little more and a little more and a little more. Listen to me. I don’t care about religion. I’m talking about a foundation. When your foundation is disturbed, when everything you are doing is the opposite of what got you to this place, then you are making your own life hard.”

It was a pretty hot take coming from a guy who was once put on trial for murder, but the sentiment stands.

However Odell wasted no time firing back. On Tuesday night, Odell posted an Instagram video of himself praying and worshipping with loved ones with the caption, “The foundation was installed at birth… we will survive and prevail… ALWAYS. God willing…”

It’s probably safe to say that this is aimed directly at Ray Lewis and his little monologue. Odell hasn’t confirmed that any of this is about Lewis’ criticism of his faith but I’m definitely here for the drama.
