We’ll have a better understanding of Odell Beckham Jr. and his standing with the New York Giants when the team opens organized team activities on Monday. For now, it’s clear that the team is listening to offers. Outside of that, nothing has really changed on this front.
According to SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, it’s highly unlikely the Giants trade Beckham Jr.
“It’s hard to imagine they would (trade him). And it remains ‘highly unlikely,’ according to a highly placed team source. No one can rule out the possibility that they’d be blown away with an offer they can’t refuse. But trading him – at least for now – is clearly not something they want to do,” the Giants’ insider reported.”
The team is said to be demanding two first-round picks in exchange for OBJ. That proved to be too rich for the Los Angeles Rams, who ultimately yielded a first-round pick for Brandin Cooks instead of paying the piper for Beckham.
Other teams are definitely interested in the Pro Bowl receiver. It just remains to be seen if any of them are willing to meet the Giants’ asking price. If not, New York will either have to lower its demands or move on from the idea of dealing OBJ.
