Odell Beckham said he's never been "as ready" for a season as he is heading into 2017.
"I’ve really been training, and to have these next six weeks and get another opportunity to train, it’s going to be great," said OBJ. "Mentally, physically, spiritually, everything, I just don’t think I’ve ever been as ready as I am now." Beckham passed on OTAs, perhaps in protest of his contract situation, but he didn't spend the time twiddling his thumbs. Still just 24, OBJ has never finished a year with fewer than 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns. He should be a top-five pick in all formats this summer. Jun 18 - 10:33 AM

In an Instagram post, Odell Beckham announced his return to the Giants.

The post is a video of Beckham's offseason workouts paired with the hashtag, "#ImBack." ESPN's Josina Anderson also confirmed Beckham has returned to the team's facility. It is not surprising Beckham will return for mandatory minicamp, but the nature of the announcement is sure to ruffle some of the most proper feathers. The good news is this distraction will be nothing more than a footnote when Beckham once again puts up 1,400 yards and double-digit touchdowns.

Odell Beckham is expected to attend next week's mandatory minicamp.

So is DE Olivier Vernon. Both were no-shows at OTAs, though those practices were voluntary. "Sure I expect everyone to be here," said coach Ben McAdoo. "We're looking forward to everyone being here next week." ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Beckham's absence from OTAs was directly related to his contract status. The 24-year-old would incur an $80,405 fine for skipping all three days of minicamp.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Odell Beckham's absence from OTAs is contract related.

OBJ seemed to confirm it by retweeting a Schefter piece backing Beckham's absence from OTAs. Owed just $1.8 million this season, OBJ is severely underpaid and makes more from his new shoe deal ($5 million) than from the Giants. OBJ has said he'll report to mandatory minicamp, so it's not quite a true holdout (yet).
Jun 7 - 8:47 AM

Odell Beckham says he will be present for mandatory minicamp.

The Giants and Giants media are treating Beckham skipping "voluntary" OTAs like the crime of the century, but he's merely abiding by the CBA. The NFL would be best served by abolishing the farcical notion that teams respect offseason workouts as "voluntary." Beckham, who has two years remaining on his rookie deal, is in extension territory.

Updating a previous item, Odell Beckham did not report for Thursday's OTA practice.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reported the receiver was expected to return on Thursday, but he is not there. As one would expect when dealing with Beckham, the situation is being blown completely out of proportion, but players skip OTAs all the time. Beckham will be ready to go when it matters.

The NFL has relaxed its celebration rules, permitting group celebrations, the use of the ball as a prop, and celebrations on the ground.

Personal fouls for having fun are going the way of the dinosaur. The change is long overdue. Even baseball, the vanguard of tradition and unwritten rules, has never restricted celebrations. The NFL was positively 19th century in what it allowed after dramatic touchdowns and game-changing plays. Expect 2017 to be the year of the celebration GIF.
May 23 - 1:09 PM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports Odell Beckham is expected to report for OTAs on Thursday.

Beckham was working out with his trainer in California when OTAs began on Monday. These sessions are voluntary, and Beckham's contract does not include workout bonuses which would give him the incentive to show up. The reason he decided to skip the first two practices is still unknown, but we are sure he will get peppered with questions about it when he returns.

Odell Beckham did not report for the first day of Giants' voluntary OTAs on Monday.

The reason is unknown, but it's important to stress these workouts are "voluntary," and Beckham could very well report on Tuesday or sometime this week. In total, there are 10 sessions before another break ahead of next month's mandatory minicamp. Beckham is under contract for a little more than $1.8 million in 2017 and is due for a mega-extension either this summer or next.

Giants exercised WR Odell Beckham's fifth-year team option for 2018.

The deadline to do so is May 3. GM Jerry Reese was recently noncommittal on the topic, but this was as easy a decision as they come. Even with OBJ's drama, he's still one of the very best receivers in the game. Signed cheaply for the next two years, Beckham will surely be looking to become the league's highest-paid receiver with a massive extension between now and next summer.

The Giants have until May 3 to exercise Odell Beckham's fifth-year option for 2018.

GM Jerry Reese was noncommittal when asked about Beckham's option on Thursday. "We are going to discuss that when the time gets closer," he said. "We will keep all of our options open with respect to that." Reese is being coy for some reason, but there's no doubt the Giants will pick up Beckham's option. The Giants can live with the occasional temper tantrum from Beckham as long as he continues to produce as one of the game's elite receivers.

Odell Beckham (teeth) expects to be ready for the start of OTAs on April 18.

Eli Manning led team workouts at Duke University last week but Beckham couldn't attend because he had to undergo oral surgery. Beckham's timing could have been better—he's been criticized him for attending the Final Four but skipping the Duke workouts—but he'll be fine for the team's offseason program. Beckham is coming off another outstanding year and should benefit from Brandon Marshall's presence in 2017.
Apr 9 - 10:00 AM

When asked about Odell Beckham's latest outburst, Giants GM Jerry Reese said, "I see a guy who needs to think about some of the things he does."

A week after pictures surfaced of Beckham and teammates partying on a boat in Miami, Beckham went out and had one of the worst games of his career in a season-ending loss to Green Bay. Those two things aren't related but the way Beckham handled the loss—he reportedly punched through a wall and swore at members of the Packers' grounds crew—obviously drew the ire of Reese. "He needs to look in the mirror and be honest with himself. We’ll help him with that, but he has to help himself," said Reese. "We all had to grow up at different times in our lives. I think it’s time for him to do it now. He’s been here three years now." As talented as he is, nobody has been more meltdown-prone than Beckham over the last few seasons.

Odell Beckham caught 4-of-11 targets for 28 yards in the Giants' Wild Card loss to the Packers.

Including these clubs' Week 5 meeting, the 2016 Packers held Beckham to 84 yards on 23 targets. On Sunday, the Packers shadowed Beckham with Ladarius Gunter and double teamed him on passing downs, preventing OBJ from getting deep. He opened the game with a third-down drop to kill New York’s first drive. Beckham also couldn’t hang onto a would-be touchdown after getting by Gunter. Albeit thrown above his head by Eli Manning, another pass bounced off Beckham’s finger tips early in the fourth quarter deep down the right sideline. Using a variety of double teams and box-out concepts, the Packers limited Beckham to high-percentage routes close to the line of scrimmage. Both offensively and defensively, the Giants were out-coached and out-classed by a white-hot Packers team.

Odell Beckham caught 5-of-7 targets for 44 yards in the Giants' Week 17 win over the Redskins.

Beckham was pulled late with the Giants having nothing to gain with a victory, but surprisingly played almost the entire game. White hot in the second half of the season, Beckham will be a nightmare for whomever (the Packers or Lions) the G-Men draw in the Wild Card round.
