Odell Beckham, Jr.

Odell Beckham Jr,’s fate has not been sealed yet but, as expected, the Giants are likely not satisfied with his injury progress and trade rumors have begun.

Co-owner John Mara had no qualms about blasting Odell’s behavior saying, “I’m tired of answering questions about Odell’s behavior and what the latest incident is,” he continued, “I think he knows what we expect of him, and now it’s up to him.”

Before the wideouts preseason injury this kind of talk was never heard coming from the executive offices in New York.

On one hand the front office is asking Beckham to grow up and on the other hand he refuses to show up for anything for any team until he has a new contract in place. He is still playing on a rookie contract despite being “the Premier” receiver in the NFL. The wrinkle is this story is the knee injury. The WO is known for his blazing speed, crisp routes and one handed catches. Remove any single attribute from these three, and he becomes a mortal man.

With organizations often being hush hush on player injuries, it’s difficult to assess what is real and contrived. The timing could not be worse, for Beckham, Jr. coming off an impressive season, he busted his knee and a knee injury can easily take an exceptional player and make him mediocre.

I could simply be too soon to get a solid injury report and the next team could be one of the luckiest in the league, offering the NFL star’s first non-rookie contract.
