Odell Beckham Jr. is about to be known for more than his signature curly haircut and passionate game tantrums.
The 24-year old New York Giants wide receiver just scored the biggest shoe deal in NFL history.
According to reports, Beckham’s agent Zeke Sandhu and his business manager/mom, Heather Van Norman helped secure the “it”athlete with a 25 million dollar shoe contract for five years with Nike:

“It was a long process,” Beckham’s agent, Zeke Sandhu, told ESPN. “This proved he’s an icon.”
Beckham who is as popular off the field just as much on, has over 8.3 million Instagram followers, 2.3 million Twitter followers and 1.3 million Facebook followers. He is also known for his eclectic Nike cleat collection on the field, often sporting custom designs by sneaker designer Troy Cole.
Even better, the contract comes at perfect timing: Beckham is currently in his final year of his rookie four year-contract totaling over 10 million. His contract is likely to extend another year, earning an additional 8 million.
