Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has not exactly been complimentary of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning in recent years, taking subtle jabs at him in interviews and even explicitly pointing out to Sports Illustrated in August that the two are not friends.

On the topic of his old quarterback, Beckham has nothing bad to say. He and Eli Manning were “cool” but not friends, teammates who didn’t “hang out outside” of football.

However, Beckham’s tune changed a bit on Wednesday when informed that Manning had been benched in favor of rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, telling Cleveland reporters that Eli is a brother while expressing nothing but love.

“That’s a brother of mine. It’s been nothing but love,” Beckham told reporters. “But I don’t play for them anymore, so I don’t have anything to do with that situation, with that organization or anything that’s going on. But it’s nothing but love for [Eli].”

Given some of Beckham’s previous potshots, this seemed like a prime opportunity to rip the Giants and Manning to shreds. Instead, in a rare moment of clarity, Beckham took the absolute highest road possible and for that, he deserves a tip of the cap.

It’s refreshing to see Beckham take a pass on kicking his former teammate when he’s down. Hopefully this is the start of a new trend that helps, at least to some degree, heal some wounds.
