No. 1 – Will Odell Beckham be back?
This would seem to be a no-brainer, but sometimes in life you have to take a step back. Are the New York Giants a better football team with OBJ around? Of course they are, but that’s not the entire story. After the nonsense of the highest paid NFL player died down, the G-Men reached a reasonable contract extension with the mercurial receiver. Contrary to what the social media mavens say, several NFL could and should be interested in bringing Beckham into the fold. Cleveland Browns, anyone? Before anyone gets the wrong idea, this isn’t an ugly divorce situation. It’s actually about adults coming together and making the best decision for everyone involved.
Big Blue will likely have quarterback Eli Manning running the offense next season, and after that it’s anyone’s guess. In what should be the prime of his career, should Beckham wait until the Giants get their act together. Another reason why drafting Sam Darnold would have been beneficial for Big Blue. Happy Holidays, everyone!
