This friday, the president of the New York Giants John Mara told his plans of rewarding the receiver Odell Beckham Jr with the deal he is seeking throughout the offseason. The president told the press that the player deserves to be payed and they are going to. Beckham is set to carry a cap hit of $3.3 million into the 2017 campaign, which ranks 46th among players at the position. The final year of the player’s contract, the number will get to almost $8.5 million next season.The 24-year-old has provided a terrific bang for the buck in recent years.
The young player caught 288 passes for 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns across his three NFL seasons since the Giants took him with the 12th overall pick in the draft of 2014. He reached a triple-digit catches last year with 101 grabs for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns. He told the press he wants to become the league’s highest-paid player. While there is no doubt of his talent, he had some off-field issues and on-field antics who made the team concerned about the amount of risk involved in a long-term and lucrative extension.
The president told the reporters that Beckham is a star in every sense of the word and that presents certain challenges, but the team will live with those challenges every day of the week as long as they had a player like that. Beckham may not get his wish of becoming the NFL’s best-paid player with a massive contract handed out to quarterbacks and edge-rushers. With that said, he will be inside the top 50 to near or at top of the wide receiver list if a new contract does get done with the Giants. Even though he is under the team’s control for two more years.
