OBJ won’t be off the market until he signs a long-term deal

Plenty of questions still linger regarding whether the Giants will trade receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Some think he’ll be traded. Some think we won’t be traded. (Some think both.) Here’s what I think. (I think there’s a chance some of you may not care what I think.) Unless and until the Giants and Beckham reach [more]

Which offenses will be the best in 2018?

Cardinals running back David Johnson recently claimed that his team’s offense will be the best in the NFL, if quarterback Sam Bradford is healthy. Some may disagree, primarily because the chances of Bradford flinging pigskins for 16 games is even lower than the pigs from which the skins come sprouting wings and flying. So which [more]

Will Giants keep OBJ?

With the Rams trading for a receiver other than Odell Beckham Jr., the question becomes whether the Giants will trade Beckham elsewhere.
