EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It has only been two months since the Giants signed Odell Beckham Jr. to a five-year, $95 million contract extension with $65 million guaranteed. That kind of commitment, plus the salary cap hits that comes with it, probably makes him the most untradeable player on the Giants' roster.
But teams have called anyway, according to a report, and they've even come through with "decent offers" -- which means some teams want him, believe they can fit him under their salary cap and have at least a slight hope they can tempt the Giants to trade him away.
Can they? It's very, very doubtful. And the price would be ridiculously high. When they listened to offers back in March, an NFL source said the impression the Giants gave was that it would take a first-round pick, plus. In fact, one report said the price was two first-round picks. And since the Oakland Raiders just unloaded Amari Cooper -- an inferior, albeit slightly less expensive receiver -- to Dallas for one first-round pick, that seems about right.
