The Giants are making some changes to the offensive coaching staff and one of them will likely be met with approval by Odell Beckham Jr.

According to multiple reports, the Giants will hire Adam Henry to be their wide receivers coach. Henry spent last season with the 49ers and was LSU’s wide receivers coach from 2012 to 2014, so he and Beckham spent a pair of years together in Baton Rouge that resulted in Beckham being a first-round pick. Rueben Randle was also at LSU while Henry was there, but may not be back as he’s set for free agency.

Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports that Henry’s replacement with the 49ers will be Bob Bicknell. Bicknell was on Chip Kelly’s staff with the Eagles the last three seasons and others are expected to join Kelly with the 49ers in the near future.

There’s no word on the next Eagles wide receivers coach at this point, but multiple reports have former Giants wide receivers coach Sean Ryan moving to the Texans. Houston fired receivers coach Stan Hixon after their playoff loss, opening a spot for Ryan to join special teams coach Larry Izzo as ex-Giants on Bill O’Brien’s staff.

    The WR Coach for NYG main concern is the cast of receivers around Beckham. That is the underperforming group……not ODB.

    You are showing your LOW IQ. Either you are a totally delusional or your understanding of football is at 2nd grade level.
