In the video, Beckham could be seen handing cash to junior wide receiver Justin Jefferson and junior wide receiver Jontre Kirklin. Jefferson is expected to be one of the top receivers taken in the 2020 NFL Draft, and is expected to go pro. Kirklin is a little known receiver who caught two passes the entire season.

Beckham is very open about his LSU pride, and has been very generous towards the current crop of Tigers, gifting LSU players Beats headphones. However, handing out cash (or fake cash) is going to raise some eyebrows, even if Beckham’s intentions were good.
Do you believe LSU’s story that the cash was fake?
