Following his appearance at the Giants' facility for voluntary offseason workouts, the Odell Beckham Jr. trade talks have died down.
That is why Beckham's best friend and former LSU teammate in Browns WR Jarvis Landry is done trying to orchestrate a reunion. He believes Beckham will be in a Giants jersey at least for one more season.
"You know what, I think that period is over," Landry told ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi on lobbying with the Browns to trade for Beckham. "He's gonna be a Giant for another year."
It was hard to miss the headlines swirling around Beckham potentially being traded before the 2018 season. Co-owner John Mara said at the NFL Owners Meeting that he couldn't commit to anyone being on the team next season, including his star receiver. And though he said "he's not on the block," Mara did say the Giants would listen to offers, with two first-rounders as the starting point to any deal.
Some teams called -- most notably the Rams -- but they scooped up Brandin Cooks from the Patriots instead. The reason teams began calling was due to the viral seven-second video that showed Beckham with a model in a bed with what looked to be drugs. It may have been the Giants' last straw, but GM Dave Gettleman has stated he doesn't give up on talent.
Beckham is still rehabbing his surgically-repaired ankle, and he seems to be coming along as planned if one were to look at his Instagram page where he posts his private workouts. He was limited at the Giants' voluntary workouts.
Landry may also be quitting after he received a hefty five-year, $75.5 million contract extension from the Browns this offseason. Beckham will be in the same boat next season when his fifth-year option expires, and he officially becomes a free agent.
