New York Giants superstar receiver Odell Beckham Jr. wants a new contract. He is set to play on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal this season for $8.5 million, well below the market value for a wide receiver of his ilk.
He’s a three-time Pro Bowl receiver and one of the league’s top playmakers. The Giants stumbled to a 3-13 season last year with him sidelined by a broken ankle.
Beckham reported for the start of training camp Monday even without a new deal, even without the Giants having shown any desire to get something done this spring or early this summer. He also attended the start of OTAs and minicamp this spring.
Give the man credit for living up to his current contract. Sometimes you outperform, and adjustments need to be made. OBJ is a game changer on the field.
