news / Odell Beckham Jr. gets Twitter Backing From Giants legend Lawrence Taylor

The greatest Giant of all time gave a shout-out on Tuesday to the young man currently chasing his legacy.

“Lookin good kid,” Lawrence Taylor tweeted at Odell Beckham Jr., after OBJ had posted a photo of himself in a Taylor No. 56 throwback jersey with “LT” earrings to promote Beckham, Nike and the Giants.

"Try to build me up or break me down, I'm still with the @nygiants. #WhoYouWith @usnikefootball #teamnike," Beckham's tweet read.

Beckham, 24, has a long way to go to catch Taylor, 58, in Giants legend status. LT boasts two Super Bowls, a 1986 MVP Award, 10 Pro Bowls, eight All-Pros and a place in the Hall of Fame.

But Beckham sets his sights high, has broken numerous records through just three NFL seasons and is already considered one of the more talented athletes ever to wear a Giants jersey.

Lawrence Taylor clearly approved of seeing OBJ wearing his No. 56 jersey, LT's support can't hurt, either.
