Odell Beckham Jr. was removed from a plane in Miami on Sunday after refusing to obey the flight crew and drifting in and out of consciousness as the plane made ready for takeoff.

Members of the flight crew feared that the free-agent wide receiver, who has yet to be signed, was seriously ill when they found it difficult to rouse him to tell him to put on his seatbelt, according to TMZ Sports.

The plane started to leave the terminal on Sunday, but was soon stopped when airline attendants could not get the player to focus.

American Airlines workers reportedly called the police when they could not get the player to wake up.

Eventually, Beckham was seen being escorted off the plane by the Miami Police:

The Miami PD noted that Beckham followed instructions and accompanied them without incident.

Beckham was not detained or cited for anything, according to Yahoo Sports.

The Super Bowl LVI player is expected to take meetings with several teams this week to see who might pick him up this season.
