There has been a ton of chatter going back to last year at the combine that the New York Giants could trade Odell Beckham Jr.
Just recently, it’s been a hot topic once again, with the San Francisco 49ers being mentioned as a team that could land the star receiver.
On Wednesday at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, Giants general manager Dave Gettleman squashed all that talk, saying, “We didn’t sign Odell Beckham to trade him.”
Dave Gettleman: We didn’t sign Odell Beckham to trade him. I know that’s all over the place right now, but we didn’t sign him to trade him. That’s all I need to say about that. #Giants

The Giants signed Beckham Jr. to a record-breaking contract just last summer. The deal included nearly $41 million guaranteed at signing. He’s set to earn $21 million in 2019, just under $20 million in 2020-21, and $19 million in 2022.
So, there’s a ton of financial commitment from the Giants invested in Beckham.
Last year, he caught 77 passes for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games. Through his first five NFL seasons, Beckham Jr. has caught 390 passes for 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns.
