Odell Beckham Jr. is a man of many talents. The reigning rookie of the year was a highly regarded soccer prospect as a teen before starring as a wide receiver at LSU and now for the New York Giants. And on Friday, he showed that his athleticism also translates to a baseball diamond. And he can pitch!!! ???????????????? Who throws a softball 90 mph!?? @OBJ_3 pic.twitter.com/inFmCSqDel — Prince Amukamara (@PrinceAmukamara) June 27, 2015 In fact, his performance at a celebrity softball game at Provident Bank Park in Pomona, N.Y., resulted in a rookie contract offer from the Rockland Boulders, a team in the independent Can-Am League. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football is back: Sign up for a league today! ] "It's apparent that Odell is a very gifted athlete regardless of his sport. We think that getting experience pitching to professional hitters will give him the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson,” Shawn Reilly, Boulders General Manager, told The Journal News . Boulders pitching coach and former Major League pitcher Bobby Jones said the team was “very impressed” with Beckham’s pitching mechanics. “He’s shown his ability to catch a ball on the gridiron and after seeing his prowess on the mound, I am optimistic that he has the tools to develop into a quality pitcher,” Jones said. The team said if Beckham is interested, he could join them for spring training next May. While that sounds like an enticing offer, staying in the NFL sounds like a more fruitful option for the 22-year-old Beckham, who had 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns last season in only 12 games.  - - - - - - - Sam Cooper is a contributor for the Yahoo Sports blogs.
