Odell Beckham Jr. Won't Get On Field Without Contract Extension

The #Giants are listening to trade calls/talks for Odell Beckham Jr and there have been several, I'm told.

When asked about the possibility of his star player leaving, Mara remained Coy: "I can't answer that one way or the other. We're not shopping him". So why would be be available?

That cloud of uncertainty, together with the fact that Beckham is now in the final year of his rookie contract, has created the whirlwind of speculation about his future. In an offense that is expected to rely on the aging Eli Manning, the Giants will need all the help they can get. The only question is where.

The prospect of Beckham catching passes from Cam Newton is undeniably alluring, but the truth is the team would be better served by getting more help at left tackle, left guard and a young tight end with the potential to replace Greg Olsen some day.

Whether the Giants trade Beckham or not, his contract remains a pressing concern.

Exacerbating matters is Beckham's reported unwillingness to step on the field without a new contract. Beckham will not sign for a cent less.

"He's on the team right now", Gettleman repeated. Cleveland, Indianapolis, and San Francisco now lead the National Football League in cap space, with $70, $61, and $46 million in cap space respectively.

The next best options are the Titans, Jets, and Bears.

"I'm looking forward to working with him". "I'd like him to be a Giant". Jacksonville could certainly carve out the space this year for Beckham and give their offense enough bite to keep up with their defense, but they won't be able to keep him long term. The Giants are reportedly seeking a first round pick "plus more" for the 25-year old Pro Bowl receiver. Add in his personality and general propensity to draw attention to himself, and a strong locker room/coaching staff structure is a prerequisite to even consider making a deal for Beckham. " And their GM, Dave Gettleman, isn't willing to "quit on talent" that easily". "It's my responsibility to create the atmosphere that allows players to play and coaches to coach".

During his opening statement, Gettleman did, without using Beckham's name, raise the issue of "distraction" and his responsibility for managing that.
