Odell Beckham Jr. has signed a five-year contract with the New York Giants over the past season, which could bring him up to $ 95 million.
This did not stop commercial speculation from resurfacing this season, especially with NFL insider Jay Glazer predicting last week in a mailbag for The Athletic that the Giants will treat the star's receiver before the season 2019.
If Glazer's predictions were not enough, NBC Sports' Chris Simms threw gasoline on fire this week, claiming, according to many sources, that the New England Patriots were the most aggressive in the continuation of the exchange against Beckham the last season. According to Simms, the Giants were cold-eyed on Beckham trading because of the Patriots' interest in acquiring the polarizing superstar.
We may never know how close New England is to achieving OBJ, but it seems that Max Kellerman is buying Simms' report that the Giants canceled an exchange when the Patriots showed interest.
"Bill Belichick looks at Odell Beckham and says," I do not care what guys get. Kellerman said Tuesday about ESPN's first catch. I think of Bill Belichick who will follow you, knowing that you are about to paid. When does he pay a player?
"I'm trying to tell people that Odell is qualitatively different from anyone who's ever held this position," added Kellerman. "He's just different. He is in a separate talent category from Julio Jones, his own category. That's why Bill Belichick, who has never paid a player in his entire life, looks at Odell and says, "He. I will not only pay for it. I'm going to exchange some stuff so that I can pay for it. And the Giants are sitting over there, "Uh, oh, I guess he's good. Let's launch a contract. "No, the Giants should not trade Odell, and that's what it means."
Beckham, 26, is undoubtedly one of the NFL's best receivers far. It's amazing what he could do by playing with quarterback Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in New England, while the OBJ has recorded huge numbers despite the ball catching. an Eli Manning in decline.
