The Giants are not planning to agree to extensions with Odell Beckham, Jr. and a host of other players at the moment, multiple sources told Jordan Raanan of ESPN.
"Listen, he deserves to get paid. We're going to pay him," Giants owner John Mara said about Beckham at Giants training camp on Friday. "It's just a question of when we do the contract."
Asked when the time might be right, Mara joked "When we determine that his agent is being reasonable." Asked if he could see Beckham having a new deal by the start of next year's training camp, Mara said "I think that's certainly a possibility."
Beckham, 25, said last week that he wants to be the highest-paid player in football but added that he doesn't want a contract war with the Giants.
In addition to Beckham, the Giants are not in a rush to lock up G Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, or LBs Jonathan Casillas and Devon Kennard, notes Raanan.
Raanan notes that "something might unfold later this summer or during the season" regarding long-term deals for the above players.
Beckham is under team control through the 2018 season and is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after. However, the Giants can place the franchise tag on Beckham if they don't agree to a deal by then.
The 27-year-old Pugh, who is making $8.82 million this season, and the 26-year-old Richburg, who is making $1.08 million, are both eligible to become unrestricted free agents after the season.
The 30-year-old Casillas, who is making $2.75 million this season, and the 27-year-old Kennard, who is making $1.79 million, are also eligible to become unrestricted free agents after the season.
