Video could hurt Odell Beckham’s megacontract chances: agent
That strange video that went viral featuring Odell Beckham Jr. and a bed, pizza, a woman and possibly but certainly not definitely marijuana and cocaine that surfaced as the Giants star receiver is seeking a break-the-bank contract extension?
It might not be anything major, but it cannot be dismissed as nothing.
The Giants said they are aware of the video but had no further comment. Beckham on his Twitter account posted Old news still makes a good story I guess with the hashtag #CatchUpWereIn18. That seems to indicate the video was not taken recently.
If you’re someone like Mara, when does it become the final straw? said the agent, who has negotiated several deals over the years with the Giants. The question is when is enough enough? When does Mara finally say ‘Hey, you want to be the highest paid player in football and this is how you conduct yourself?’ Your past follows you, whether it’s recent or a while ago.
Here come the Bills. Monday’s trade with the Bengals moves the Bills from No. 21 in the draft to No. 12. They could be following the Eagles’ blueprint from 2016, when they kept trading up to get Carson Wentz with the No. 2 pick. That would be trouble for the Jets, who will be in the market to draft a quarterback if they don’t land Cousins. The Bills have a lot of picks and a hole at quarterback after trading Tyrod Taylor to the Browns. Brandon Beane could have more moves coming before the draft on April 26.
Now, the personable Gettleman can be something of a kidder, but he is deadly serious about fixing the most glaring deficiency in the team he inherited. The time for planning and talking is over. It is time for action, as the desultory Giants’ offensive line needs a major revamping, and hoping and wishing for help not going to get it done.
