The Giants have reportedly been trying to trade their star receiver since signing him to a five-year, $90 million deal in 2018.

The reason for that is the team was tired of his antics, according to SNY.

"He had become too much of a pain in the a—," once source told SNY. "And there was a real fear that eventually it would get worse."

The report cites several instances in which Beckham had upset the front office including an incident with a woman in bed and a possible joint, an interview on ESPN in which he was non-committal on the team's quarterback situation, and another in which he missed a game with an injury without warning the team.

There are two ways to look at Odell Beckham Jr .’s latest ride on the emotional roller coaster. Beckham early in the fourth quarter of the 29-27 loss to the Redskins was losing it on the sideline, moments after a Manning interception cost the Giants points as they trailed 26-24.

Simply put — and general manager Dave Gettleman did say it this way — the Giants were done with distractions and OBJ had become just that.

"You've got to eliminate distractions," Gettleman said at the combine, and not specifically about Beckham. "There used to be a thing I used to call 'the a—hole quotient.' The bigger the a—hole you are, the better the player you had to be. Plain and simple. It's funny (but) it's true. It really is.

Beckham was carted off in obvious pain and, per Evan Washburn of CBS on the broadcast, taken Odell Beckham is headed for surgery, per source. He injured his leg in the fourth quarter. The Giants , who would eventually lose the game to the Chargers 27-22, are now down to just a single

When Odell Beckham Jr ., the balletic wide receiver with the action-hero charisma, was drafted by the New York Giants two years ago, he embarked on a life as a star athlete in New York that comes with two inevitabilities: limitless branding opportunities and unavoidable tabloid dust-ups. Ask Joe Namath.

Ultimately it got first- and third-round picks in the 2019 draft and a starter in Jabril Peppers to boot. The Giants lost starting safety Landon Collins in free agency to the Redskins and loved Peppers in the 2017 draft, according to SNY, so the match made sense.

New York was also reportedly afraid after the Antonio Brown situation in Pittsburgh that Beckham would do something similar a couple of years into his deal. This was a theoretical possibility, but it was apparently enough for the Giants to start to look at cutting ties with the wide receiver.
