Odell Beckham Jr. NFL trade rumor mill

Odell Beckham Jr. NFL trade rumor mill

"Bottom line is, as Ernie [Accorsi] taught us, you don't quit on talent", Gettleman said when asked if Beckham can be part of the solution in NY, via NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Right now, Odell Beckham Jr.is a wide receiver for the New York Giants.

"We all understand that there are certain ways we need to act and certain things we don't want to be doing".

The quick change in tune from the organization might have something to do with Beckham's threat of holding out until that new deal comes around, but the team's aggressive handling of the star has impressed Shurmur.

Beckham is now scheduled to earn $8.459 million in the final year of his rookie deal, but he did undergo season-ending ankle surgery last year which could keep him sidelined into training camp.

McVay was careful on addressing the Beckham trade speculation specifically. The 25-year-old had at least 1,300 yards and 10 receiving touchdowns in each of his first three seasons but was limited to just four games in 2017 because of a fractured left ankle.

And let's be honest: few have the talent that Beckham possesses. Otherwise, they could put a stop to all of this talk by simply saying Beckham is not going to be traded.

So, how much would it take to get Beckham wearing a Panthers uniform?

That doesn't mean Marty Hurney shouldn't give Gettleman a call: it means Beckham is likely too rich for the team's blood.

Leonard notes that trading Beckham is not the Giants' "preferred course of action", but "there absolutely is a significant possibility that Beckham could be on another National Football League team this coming season because of the dynamics at play".

Of course, all this could change if the Giants were given an offer for the wide receiver which they couldn't refuse, and considering Beckham has said he wants a contract where he is earning $20 million a year, nothing should be considered off the table yet. Interested teams should proceed with caution.
