  Odell Beckham continues to show up for work Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham‘s continued attendance at Giants workouts was #asexpected, and allows the team to think about the future of what could be a prolific offensive tandem. Via Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Beckham was back on hand for Giants OTAs today, giving him a chance to continue to work with rookie running back Saquon Barkley, as well as a chance for coach Pat Shurmur to continue building their relationship.

Odell Beckham Jr. has gone out of his way to play nice with the New York Giants this offseason, but he still wants a long-term contract extension. According to one report, he has more to show both on and off the field before he is going to get it.

SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano wrote over the weekend that Beckham and the Giants are getting close to a contract “showdown,” with Beckham expected to be fully cleared to practice in the near future. Beckham underwent ankle surgery in October, and a source told Vacchiano that the Giants are waiting to see how he looks physically and whether he will remain focused off the field.

Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. ‘pretty close’ to being fully cleared

  Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. ‘pretty close’ to being fully cleared New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) is "pretty close" to being fulled cleared, says head coach Pat Shurmur.Shurmur told reporters that he had been previously made aware that neither Beckham nor cornerback Janoris Jenkins would be in attendance on Tuesday.

The New York Giants and superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr . reached an agreement on a reported five-year, million contract extension Monday Beckham caught 25 passes for 302 yards and three TDs in four games before he suffered his season-ending injury in 2017.

Giants ' receiver Odell Beckham Jr . is three games into his return from a broken ankle suffered last season and notes he's not fully back, saying, "it's like Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey was taken off the injury report and reported no issues with his right ankle Friday, ahead of his much anticipated

Their preference, according to a team source, is to first make sure Beckham has fully recovered from the ankle surgery he underwent in October and is still the same explosive player, and to give it a little time to make sure he really is doing his best to remain controversy-free. Then they will be willing to open their vault.

The problem with that is Beckham may choose to not give the Giants a front-row seat to see how crisp his route-running is. If he holds out from training camp in search of a new contract, it will be tough for them to tell how explosive he is.

Beckham is under contract for roughly $8.5 million in 2018, and the Giants could always use the franchise tag on him next offseason. He doesn’t have much leverage, and we have already heard that the team tried to use one of his latest off-field slip-ups against him in contract talks. While OBJ’s presence at voluntary workouts has been encouraging, things could change in a hurry.
