The New York Giants wide receiver — who is entering his fourth NFL season — channeled the late King of Pop at the team’s training camp practice on Tuesday. When Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel” began blaring on the speakers on the team’s practice field during a TV timeout, 24-year-old Beckham immediately busted out his dancing moves:

Beckham performed several of Jackson’s classic dance moves: the hip thrust, the finger snapping, the heel kick. Now we just have to wait and see if the wideout will replicate them once the regular season begins.
Earlier this year, the wideout got a tattoo of Jackson on his lower right leg.
No updates on a new contract for Beckham have yet surfaced, as Giants owner John Mara and general manager Jerry Reese have both been very vague about how much longer the receiver could stay with the team.
In April, the Giants exercised Beckham’s fifth-year option. Beckham — a three-time Pro Bowl selection— signed a record deal with Nike earlier this offseason and recently said he wanted to be the league’s highest-paid player.
In 2014, the former first-round draft pick out of LSU led the NFL in yards per game with 108.8. to win 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.
