Giants 'Listening To Trade Calls' For Odell Beckham Jr

Odell Beckham Jr

A rumor was floated on Monday that the Los Angeles Rams contacted the New York Giants about possibly trading for Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham is scheduled to make about $8.5 million this year, the fifth-year option season of his rookie contract, and there's been an expectation around the team and the league that he wouldn't show up for offseason work without a new deal. He's set to make nearly $8.5 million in 2018 after NY picked up the fifth-year option in his rookie deal. The Giants expect him to be healthy enough to play Week 1, but he might not even turn up to training camp if he doesn't get the extension he desires.

But considering Beckham's far-from ideal behavior, Giants co-owner John Mara might want to ride himself of the headache. "There are steps he has to take". He had 288 receptions, 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns in his first three seasons before last year's injury. While the franchise tag worked out great for Kirk Cousins, Beckham's physical gifts may not last another three years, and signing an NFL-record deal with a 28-year-old wide out is a lot less appealing for teams than signing one with a 25-year-old.

"I went back, as I was watching this year's quarterbacks I went back and watched his college film to compare him to the guys coming out this year, I went back and revisited my notes from doing him [as the Vikings offensive coordinator] a year ago, we had him rated highly", Shurmur said. The News has reported that the Giants' starting asking price is more than a first-round pick, but something less than two first-round picks. "I understand that. It's sort of refreshing to know that we're going to look under any rock and turn over every stone that we can to make sure we make the NY football Giants the best team we can make it".

Authorities surround the home of the Austin bombing suspect Mark Conditt in Pflugerville, Texas , Wednesday, March 21, 2018 . This case showed the serial bomber using a different method since the first three cases involved packages left at homes.

"We're always looking for a young, generational quarterback ... yeah, that's the urge", Shurmur said.

"I think it's important that you get all the information", Shurmur said.

Beckham has been very vocal in his desire to get paid in his next contract. We want guys that understand the importance of relationships, which means they want to be coached.

But within the walls of the Giants' building, many say he's a good teammate and a hard worker.
