“It’s a NEW ERA and for starters, I can’t wait to announce that I’m taking my new salary in bitcoin,” tweeted the three-time Pro Bowler, who also said he was giving away $1 million in bitcoins to fans.

Beckham is one of at least five current NFL players who receive at least a portion of their salary in the form of crypto pay. The list includes Aaron Rodgers, Trevor Lawrence, Russell Okung and Saquon Barkley.
