Odell Beckham Reports To Giants Offseason Workouts

New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been in the middle of the NFL rumor mill for the past month or so. However, he did report to the Giants offseason workout exactly as he should have on Monday morning in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The Giants organization has said that Beckham Jr. is not on the trading block, but that does not mean that he cannot get traded. While he was not getting actively shopped around by the Giants, some teams, such as the Los Angeles Rams, were rumored to have interest in trading for him.

With Beckham Jr. reporting to the offseason workouts, this will not silence any of the rumors, but it will give some peace of mind to Giants fans.

Of course, Beckham Jr. has had his fair share of off the field incidents, but there is no arguing that he is one of the best wideouts in the NFL.

Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said that he has been in constant contact with Beckham ever since he took the job this offseason

“I’m not overthinking this,” Shurmur said. “This is the first day of work. This is the first opportunity for all of us to be here together. I think it’s important that Odell is here.

“I’m looking forward to him getting one day better by being here. I’m looking forward to him inspiring some of his teammates to get better because he is here and he is a terrific player.”

Shurmur added that he also has spoken with Beckham regarding a video that did not portray him in a good light.

“I’ve communicated with him. Certainly, that communication is between me and him,” Shurmur said. “[Conversations are] private between Odell and myself, but we talked about the video.

“I really believe that Odell is a professional and he wants to be great. He is a competitive guy. We had already started communicating before all that information kind of got out there and was talked about to a great deal. I’m glad he is here today.”

As the season draws closer, there will likely be more rumors surrounding trade talks and OBJ. However, for now, it appears that he will remain with the only team he has played with his entire NFL career.
