Earlier in the week, Beckham sent every LSU player a pair of Beats wireless headphones to enjoy, which was cleared by the NCAA.
In a new statement, LSU doesn't respond to the Burrow comments, but acknowledges that the school is now investigating whether actual cash was also given to players. Information and footage reviewed since shows apparent cash may have also been given to LSU student-athletes.
LSU graduate transfer quarterback Joe Burrow, who has exhausted his college eligibility and is expected to be a top National Football League draft choice this year, said on a Barstool Sports podcast that it appeared to him Beckham was handing out actual cash.
This incident could be a violation of NCAA rules since players are not allowed to accept cash, according to NCAA bylaws. "We are working with our student-athletes, the NCAA and the SEC in order to rectify the situation".
"I'm not a student-athlete anymore, so I can say yeah", Burrow told the hosts. And now, a video hit Twitter showing Beckham confronting - and evidently spanking - an officer in the locker room.
