Giants expecting Odell Beckham to participate in offseason work

The New York Giants and the Los Angeles Rams have discussed possibly trading for wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. "So I'm looking forward to working with him, as well as Davis Webb".

"I do know this: I've seen Eli in the building nearly every day during the offseason and he's the fittest, healthiest 37-year-old I've ever been around", Shurmur said. But after that, the Giants would say a Beckham trade "probably won't happen". The Rams' signing of star defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh a day earlier already seemed to get pushed to the background as Beckham chatter increased. "We're not shopping him around".

Giants GM Dave Gettleman on Tuesday afternoon had several easy opportunities to simply say Beckham was not available via trade, and he declined to commit to Beckham every time. "I understand that. It's sort of refreshing to know that we're going to look under any rock and turn over every stone that we can to make sure we make the NY football Giants the best team we can make it".

The current understanding of the New York Giants wide receiver debacle is that he will not set foot on the field without a new contract extension with the Giants or any other team. Beckham is entering the fifth and final year of his rookie deal and there has been strong speculation he will hold out during training camp. 'Who knows how that video appeared? "I don't want to make this sound like it's a showcase for Webb, but as a guy we're interested in seeing, he's certainly gonna get his fair share of the reps".

There would be plenty of interest for a player of Beckham's caliber on the open market, and one of the best potential landing spots would be with the Rams in Los Angeles. 'It's important as coaches and players and anybody who is working together to visit and get a chance to know one another.

"We're gonna take in any information we can up to that time we're on the clock, really", Shurmur said. "I think it's important, especially in the player-coach relationship, to get to know him".
