While at the NFL Combine, Giants HC Pat Shurmur said he isn't sure whether or not star wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., will be ready to go once training camp starts, per SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.
Beckham is still rehabbing his surgically repaired ankle he sustained in Week 5 against the Chargers last season. He has been putting his training sessions all over his social media accounts. And that was verified by Shurmur, who noted him spending time in the Giants' facility already this offseason getting treatment.
The 25-year-old recently went after the media after a tweet this past weekend that looked as if he didn't want to play any preseason snaps was jumped on immediately. Beckham went back to Twitter to clarify his tweet that simply said "0" after responding to a fan pleading for no preseason games for him.
He tweeted: "People take things a little too serious sometimes... quick to write a story, but hey anything for a couple of likes in this world. Lol it's so sad that's the world we live in. Wonder if we'll ever change!?"That was followed by a more direct quip: "Grow up. Please. I'm tryna do the same."
Giants GM Dave Gettleman, who is also at the Combine, gave his side on OBJ's tweet saying, "Let me tell you something: Social media is evil. I'm not losing any sleep over that."
Beckham is still awaiting a new, long-term deal, which co-owner John Mara publicly said he wants to give him in the future. However, he also said the contract has to happen organically, noting "the time is not necessarily right now."
The star receiver may be in the Giants' facilities, but he may not make his presence known at OTAs this year, which would be the same as last season. Beckham didn't show up to practices until the mandatory start of camp.
I just wannna take this moment to thank God, as I sit back and reflect, knowing that we've came a long way. I remember not being able to put my foot on the ground, hopping up stairs, fallin over, gettin frustrated. I just wanted to be able to walk again, shoot hoops, play wit my dogs, just wanted to do some of the smaller everyday things that we often take for granted. Now we're back on the right path. And we're comin for it all! BeluhhhhDat!
