Odell Beckham on contract: When time comes, it comes

AP

Wide receiver Odell Beckham’s absence from Giants voluntary work this spring drew a lot more attention than anything the Giants in attendance were doing, so it comes as little surprise that his first media session since showing up for mandatory minicamp was focused on questions about why he stayed away from the team.

Beckham’s contract was of particular interest. Beckham has a base salary of just over $1.8 million this season and the team exercised their option for the 2018 season as well, but didn’t use his time in front of the microphones and cameras to make his case for getting a new deal that would run beyond that point.

“I leave that in the hands of the man above,” Beckham said, via Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. “When that time comes, that time comes. Right now is really not the time to discuss it. When it comes, it’ll come.”

Giants co-owner John Mara, who may or may not be the man above Beckham is referring to, has said that he wants Beckham to spend his entire career with the team and Beckham said that he and Mara are on the same page on that front. That just leaves hammering out the details and there’s a lot of time to get them done before there’s any chance of Beckham heading to another team.

    Another loud-mouthed, narcissistic, man/child who hides behind his religious hypocrisy. Doesn’t the NFL (or sports, in general) have enough of those already?

    That’s nice that Mara said he wants OBJ to be a Giant for life. Let’s see if those words are backed up by actions. Personally I view Mara as a snake in the grass.

    Smart move on the Giant’s part. Show up and succeed if you can…

    Its funny how Mara is such an “awful” guy but yet every player that ever plays for him cant stop saying what a great organization the Giants are. I wonder how that happens?

    Owning a football team that is a “great organization” now means you can’t be an awful guy? Man..the powers of the NFL is stronger than I thought!

    Indybear has a lot of loathing for a man that simply runs fast and catches footballs for entertainment.

    You might be too emotionally attached, friendo.
