Odell Beckham Jr. chats with Jordan

Giants rookie sensation Odell Beckham Jr. has gone from having dinner with LeBron James this month to communicating with Michael Jordan.

Over the past week, Beckham and Jordan have been exchanging texts, with the idea to continue corresponding, sources told ESPN.

Just as Beckham reached out to James, he did the same with Jordan, wanting to get into the mindsets of some of the all-time great athletes.

James encouraged Beckham to focus on on-field business, and Jordan has offered the rookie wide receiver similar encouragement.

There is a chance that Beckham and Jordan -- both of whom have deals with Nike -- will meet up on a personal and professional level in the near future.

Despite missing the first four games this season, Beckham enters Sunday's game against the Rams with 972 receiving yards -- the most among NFL rookies -- and nine touchdowns this season.
