Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. went viral during Sunday's blowout loss to the Tennessee Titans not because of a great catch or a wild touchdown but because of the expensive watch he was wearing on his left wrist in the game.

You know who didn't like that? The NFL, of course. The league apparently has a rule that does not allow "hard objects" to be worn by players.

The NFL let OBJ and the Browns know on Monday that the watch isn't to be worn during games. But the WR said he's going to keep wearing it and that the NFL is only making a big deal about this because it involves OBJ.

Odell Beckham Jr made the bizarre decision to wear a luxury watch during the Cleveland Browns’ Week 1 game against the Tennessee Titans, and he apparently violated an NFL Odell Beckham Jr . quickly shut down group interview at his locker on watch . Said league has not spoken to him.#Browns.

But here's the thing, why do you even need to wear watch in a NFL game? Or at all, really? Granted, I'm biased here because I'm not a watch guy. I have a cellular phone that's always with me and tells me the time pretty accurately each time I look at it.

I know the great Reggie Roby used to wear a cheap digital watch when he was punting for the Dolphins because he liked to see how long his punts travelled in the air, which as a kid I thought was both weird and cool.

And I get OBJ is a fashion-forward guy, which is cool and all. But who really cares about wearing a wrist watch in a NFL game?

The league is likely concerned for player safety with this issue but I don't see the watch ever really hurting anybody.

The Browns got off to a horrendous start in Sunday's loss and all focus should be on getting ready for Monday's Week 2 game against the New York Jets.

Odell Beckham Jr. Says His Hip Injury Prevents Him From Sprinting

Odell Beckham Jr. Says His Hip Injury Prevents Him From Sprinting Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is ready for Sunday's game against the Titans despite being limited with his hip injury. During a press conference on Thursday, Beckham compared the nagging injury to a car with mechanical problems. © Michael Hickey/Getty Images"It's like an extremely fast car with the alignment off,'' he said, per Cleveland.com. "The car can still go, but it's dangerous.'' Beckham, 26, said his hip is still bothering him and admitted that it has been holding him back at practice. He added: "It's something that prevents me from opening up and sprinting.

Watch - watch : Odell Beckham Jr . picks very tiny, very expensive hill to die on. Jay Busbee. Odell Beckham Jr ., possessed of an infinite capacity to both outrun his defenders and infuriate his backers, has decided to make as his first cause of 2019 the right to wear a Richard Mille RM 11-03 McLaren

On Sunday, Beckham wore the same watch he’d been seen with all throughout training camp: the RM 11-03 McLaren, one of Richard Mille’s many racing-inspired watches . This is important to note in a roundabout way. See, for half a century race car drivers have been wearing watches while competing

If I'm OBJ, which I'm not, I'd be happy that I got to wear it in one game, that it got some fun attention, and then I'd ditch it so all the focus and attention would be on the job at hand and not having reporters bother you with questions about a dumb watch.

Though there is a different direction that he can take here, one that would definitely go viral and be awesome. Instead of wearing a watch in a game, strap your phone to your belt in an OtterBox like some old father in a shopping mall and wear that onto the field.

The NFL would lose its mind over that one.

Tuesday's biggest winner: DeMarcus Lawrence.

The Dallas Cowboys star was taking some heat for a video that showed him turning down a kid's autograph request on Sunday because the kid was wearing a Saquon Barkley Giants jersey. Lawrence tweeted about it Tuesday, telling people and the kid to suck it up, which is too funny. Listen, if you were a kid would you rather have a dumb autograph from a guy on a team you don't like, an autograph you'd probably lose track of pretty quickly, or have this funny video of a NFL star giving you a tough life lesson? I'd take the video all day and laugh at it for the rest of my life. By the way, Lawrence did something awesome for some kids on Tuesday.
