Beckham Jr. played football in high school at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans and later starred with the Tigers from 2011 to 2013.

He is currently a member of the Cleveland Browns.

NCAA student athletes cannot take advantage of their image, which includes the sale of equipment or autographs.

Players cannot receive monetary gifts either.

On Tuesday, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron and junior linebacker Patrick Queen said during their morning press conference that it was the first time he had heard about the incident.

“No sir, I didn’t see that,” Queen said.

“First I hear about that,” said Orgeron.
