Odell Beckham Jr.’s dreams of a reunion with the New York Giants are seemingly dashed. The Giants made several wide receiver moves this week, including the return of Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard – as well as the addition of Parris Campbell.
New York re-signed Slayton on Friday to a two-year contract, which could have marked the end of a potential return for Odell Beckham Jr. to the Giants. By ESPNBeckham is ‘out of their (Giants) price range’
Beckham also took to social media on Saturday wondering where he was asking for $20 million per season. The former Pro Bowl wide receiver appeared to indicate he was only offered $4 million after working for teams this week.
Beckham didn’t play last season as he recovered from a torn ACL but has toured several teams in search of a multi-year contract. He didn’t get that deal. but worked for at least 12 teams this week.
The last time Beckham played a game, he was instrumental in helping the Los Angeles Rams win the Super Bowl. Beckham has turned his 2021 season around since signing with the Rams after an ugly breakup with the Cleveland Browns, recording 27 catches for 305 yards and five touchdowns in eight games.
Beckham had 21 catches for 288 yards and two touchdowns in four playoff games, and recorded two catches for 52 yards and a touchdown in Super Bowl LVI before suffering a knee injury that cost him his 2022 season.
As a Giants reunion looms, many teams are expected to be interested in Beckham as he is one of the best remaining pass-catchers in free agency.
