Superstar wideout Odell Beckham Jr. and the Giants are closing in on a five-year contract extension that will make him the highest-paid receiver in the NFL, reports NFL Network.
For the #Giants and WR Odell Beckham Jr., this 5-year extension being finalized is the end to a long saga that results in both sides getting what they want — One of the best players in the game in a #Giants uniform for years to come and well-compensated for it. Win/win.

The deal ensures that Beckham, a potential free agent following the 2018 season, will bypass the open market in favor of staying with the only franchise he’s ever played for.

Beckham, a 2014 first-round pick out of LSU, established himself as one of the top playmakers in the game during his first three years with the Giants. He made the Pro Bowl and recorded at least 90 catches, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns each season.
When healthy, he’s definitely one of the best, if not the best. A homerun hitter who is a fantasy beast. Looks like Eli Manning just bought himself a few more years as the Giants starting Quarterback.
