Watch: nonchalant Odell Beckham Jr. pre-game catch is absurd

This Odell Beckham Jr. pre-game catch can't be real.

Almost every fan of football is familiar with the spectacular hands of Odell Beckham Jr. If you need any more convincing, just watch this one-handed pre-game snag.

WATCH: Odell Beckham made a nonchalant catch that literally looked like a glitch in a video game. Wow.

The Giants hosted the Steelers in their first pre-season game Friday night. It is safe to assume, given star players won't see much playing time week one of the preseason, 'OBJ' decided he'd show off for the fans during warm-ups.

You have likely seen the one-handed miracle catch the Beckham hauled in during a 2015 Sunday Night Football game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Odell made headlines last week when he told the media he wants to be the highest paid player in the entire league. Catches like these show why he might actually be worth it; he's arguably the only person on the planet that does what he does with his hands.

It's up for debate whether or not pre-game catches are allowed to be placed in the same breath as those in prime-time regular season games. But from the standpoint of defying physics and gravity, I'm putting it in the same echelon. 

In my opinion, they both go into the 'sheer absurdity' category.
