Odell Beckham Jr. escorted off plane after reportedly 'coming in and out of consciousness' before flight

Free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was kicked off a plane Sunday after the flight crew reportedly observed him "coming in and out of consciousness," according to Miami-Dade police.

The crew feared Beckham was seriously ill after trying to wake him to put on his seatbelt, and that his condition would worsen during the flight, so they called for police and a fire crew. Beckham reportedly would not leave the flight when asked by the crew, leading to the entire plane being evacuated. Beckham left the plane without incident when police arrived, per the statement.

Beckham was not detained or cited for the incident, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Beckham is still a free agent after sustaining an ACL injury in Super Bowl LVI. Beckham is drawing interest from a number of teams, including the Dallas Cowboys. Beckham was expected to visit with teams during the week. It's unclear whether Sunday's incident, or a possible Beckham illness, will prevent him from making those visits.
