As the saga of the Giants and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. continues to eat the offseason, the next chapter will unfold tomorrow when the Giants begin their offseason conditioning program.

And Beckham’s apparently going to be there.

According to Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network, Beckham is expected to be on hand when the Giants open the first day of work of the Pat Shurmur administration.

Shurmur said during the owners meetings that’s what he anticipated to happen, but so much was said about Beckham that week it’s hard to keep the stories straight.

The Giants were tired of his distractions, unless they weren’t. They refused to declare him untoucable, unless they didn’t. And in a case of NFL Network on NFL Network crime, there were reports he wasn’t stepping on the field without a contract extension.

Technically, that might still be true as the first phase of offseason programs include strength and conditioning and rehab work. They won’t actually step onto a field for two weeks, when players can begin individual instruction.

But while the semantics will have to be sorted out, the reality is he wants a new contract, and the Giants may or may be inclined to give him one. But showing up and playing nice can’t hurt.

  1. Has only played one full season in his four, signed a contract and now wants to hold the team hostage coming off an injury. Sounds about right.

  2. Cant speak for everyone, but I am getting pretty sick of hearing about Odell Beckett. I am sure there are other issues/stories that can fill up the daily quota of posts here.
    Too much… TOO MUCH

  3. Every time one of these premadonna wide receivers get a monster contract, their production goes down. Larry Fitzgerald, Calvin Johnson are examples of classy examples of those that played hard no matter what they made. I dont see OBJ as one of those guys. Be careful Giants.

    From Webster’s Dictionary, circa 2035:
    Hater (hay-ter): A meaningless, overused, long-played out pop culture term inexplicably popular in the early part of the 21st century; favored by junior high girls and the uneducated as a shortcut to independent or original thinking.

  5. The guy is showing up to involuntary workouts…and he STILL gets bashed. Odell missed most of last year with a broken ankle. In his 1st 3 years he was 10th, 5th, and 3rd in receiving yardage with a QB way past his prime. Yeah, Odell is really horrible.

  6. The real question is, who dumped the bag of Cheetos on his head, and why won’t he brush them off?

  7. arwiv, he’s showing up tomorrow and leaving by the end of the day, that’s it. He’s already said he won’t step on the field nor practice without a new deal. How well did he play in his one playoff appearance. Maybe if he focused on catching with two hands instead of trying to put on a show all the time only using one he’d be an all time best.

    This is a a 2-14 team so if he lifts them to 5-11 that will be an amazing and impressive impact for a single receiver to deliver all on his own. And yes, Ill stop bashing him if he does that. Ill even be happy about it.
