The NFL notified Odell Beckham Jr. he is prohibited from wearing a watch while playing in games - but it does not appear the league's warning is resonating with the Cleveland Browns newcomer.

On Monday, a league spokesman said there is no rule prohibiting players from wearing jewelry.

According to Mary Kay Cabot, Beckham said he wants it to be about football going forward, not the watch, but he is planning on continuing to wear the watch going forward.

The league spoke to the Browns on Monday about Beckham's decision to wear the Richard Mille watch, which retails for around $200,000.

Many of Beckham Jr's apologists around the sport have pointed to tennis stars like Rafael Nadal and golf stars like Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson also wearing watches during their tournaments, but Chris and Rob quickly shoot that theory down considering they aren't contact sports.

Beckham said that conversation has not happened yet but he contests his luxury timepiece is in line with the letter of the law.

Well, it wasn't just a regular watch - it was a Richard Mille watch that is now being priced north of $350,000.

". You've got to look into the rule book". Beckham believes he's just being given a hard time. It's a nice watch, but you'd think he'd rather not wear it during a football game. You don't see them taking them off.
