Why the Giants can't afford to trade Odell Beckham Jr., literally and figuratively

Why the Giants can't afford to trade Odell Beckham Jr., literally and figuratively Odell Beckham Jr. trade rumors are fun, especially when teams like the Browns and 49ers are involved. But financially (and practically, when it comes to GM Dave Gettleman), the Giants are not in a position to trade their star receiver.

Odell Beckham Jr . trade rumors : Three teams engaged in talks for Giants WR . Written By Travis Durkee. The Steelers have said Antonio Brown's trade situation will be sorted by Friday, but the situation surrounding Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr . is much more unclear.

The Steelers have said Antonio Brown's trade situation will be sorted by Friday, but the situation surrounding Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is much more unclear.

New York is reportedly open to offers for Beckham, and as CBS Sports noted Wednesday, the Raiders, 49ers and Browns appear most interested in making a deal.

"I did hear at the combine, pretty strongly, that for the right price Odell Beckham can be had," Jason LaConfora said. "The Giants are willing to continue to listen to teams. It would take a very high price, but we’ve seen a lot of receivers traded in the past for two ones, guys like Keyshawn Johnson, who had never come close to what Odell Beckham has done and he’s obviously still in his prime."

LaConfora added Browns sources claim there's nothing in the works for Beckham, but things can certainly change.

"Pump the brakes on Cleveland for OBJ right now, but there’s a lot of time between now and the draft," he said. "Cleveland, Oakland, San Francisco are the teams I’ve heard most connected to Odell Beckham."

The draft begins April 25, and any team in need of a top-flight receiver would be foolish not to consider a guy like Beckham, who has scored 44 touchdowns in 56 career games. However, the Giants won't let him go for cheap.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley weighs in on Odell Beckham Jr. trade: 'I was sad to see him go'.
“I was sad to see him go,” Barkley told NJ Advance Media. “But, hopefully he continues to have a great career there in Cleveland.” Barkley said he spoke with Beckham shortly after the deal was announced. “We talked over Facetime, he had just gotten traded, so I don’t think he was really happy about it,” Barkley said. “He just gave me some advice about how to handle stuff in the league. He was the same old big brother to me that he’s always been.” Barkley rushed for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns in 16 games for New York as a rookie last season. He also added four receiving scores.
