Giants quarterback Eli Manning is not annoyed with Odell Beckham after the receiver missed the team's OTAs this spring.
Manning said on "The Jim Rome Show" that he and Beckham are in constant communication, and he was aware Beckham was going to miss the workouts and spend time in California.
"I promote him in doing whatever it takes for him to be at his best," Manning said, "and for that he thought he needed to be training on his own in California to get his workouts to make sure he's healthy and ready to go for the upcoming season."
Despite Beckham missing the 10 OTAs, Manning said the fourth-year pro is dedicated and ready to work hard for the upcoming season.
"The guy's a workhorse,'' Manning said. "He's loves the training. He knows his body, he knows what he's got to do to get ready and so he felt this was the best way for him to get prepared. Sometimes as athletes, you know your body better than anyone else."
Beckham is coming off a season in which he recorded 101 receptions -- including 10 touchdowns -- for 1,367 yards.
