Colin Kaepernick Heaps Praise On New York Giants Star Rookie Odell Beckham Jr

Colin Kaepernick has heaped praise on the New York star rookie Odell Beckham Junior after he almost inspired the Giants to a win over the San Francisco 49ers.

The wide receiver – taken as the 12th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft – caught for 93 yards, adding to his impressive total of 463 yards over six games this season.

A disappointing Giants performance – not helped by the inconsistency of Eli Manning – made sure the Giants were on the losing side 16-10.

But 49ers quarterback Kaepernick exchanged jerseys with the rookie out of Louisiana State and paid tribute to him on Instagram account today.

He said:

Respect is one of the greatest things someone can give you in this world…. respect the hell out of@iam_objxiii for how he plays this game! #StarOnTheRise #IDontGetTired #WhoDoYouLove #Se7enPounds
