    NFL to look into (WRs) Odells gloves to see if 'something is up':

    But not just him, all gloves worn in the NFL. Are they too 'tackified'?

    "I think it's time to go back and look at the gloves and see if, with what's going on here with sports science in the past 10 years, if there isn't too much of an advantage being gained," McKay said.

    McKay is hardly alone in his thinking. In Farmer's article, he quotes multiple former players, including Tim Brown, Cris Collinsworth, John Madden, and Rich Gannon, who all seem to indicate that "tackified" gloves might be enhancing the performance of players too much.

    Brown pointed to Odell Beckham's catch last season, the one that turned Beckham into a household name.

    According to Brown, that catch would not have occurred without Beckham's gloves.

    "You have to be careful about the way you analyze that play because you don't want people calling you a hater or whatever," Brown said. "But you can't make that play without those kind of gloves. It's just impossible.

    Just a bunch of bitter old men. Tim Brown states that he doesn't want to come across as hater yet that's exactly what he did.

    To me this would be like the NBA looking into sneakers and if they are better now than 20 years ago... Come on. It still is very hard to do what ODB did.

    Yeah and that catch didn't look funny at all imo. He got a good jump and just got his hand on the ball in the right spot and pulled it in. The NFL has woman beaters, rapists, and thugs acting up and they are worried about Beckham's gloves. Sad
