Never say never? No one will ever forget the incredible plays former NY Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. used to make for the team. While his exit from the organization wasn’t pretty, it’s clear that OBJ still cherishes the great memories he had with the G-Men catching balls from Eli Manning back in the day.
With Beckham still being a free agent, there’s no way he considers a return to MetLife Stadium, right? Not so fast, folks. On Instagram, Beckham certainly left the door open for a possible reunion with his former squad, as he even went on to say that it was his dream to help the Giants win another Super Bowl. Oh my.
NY Giants signing Odell Beckham Jr. would be incredible to see
Beckham missing his damn squad? Giants fans are losing their minds on Twitter after seeing this comment and understandably so. Again, there was plenty of drama between Beckham and the Giants late during his stay in East Rutherford, but there’s no denying he’s an unreal threat when healthy.
Unfortunately for OBJ, he suffered a torn ACL in the LA Rams’ Super Bowl win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Beckham is still working his way back from his injury, but he’s ready to try and make an impact for a squad this fall. The Rams are interested in bringing him back, but nothing has materialized their yet.
A move by the Giants could be a bit tricky, as the team is a bit strapped when it comes to cap space. However, with the injury to training camp standout Collin Johnson, there’s a need for another speedster on the outside. If the team were to release Darius Slayton, that’d also create more than $2 million in additional cap space.
There’d need to be some moving parts here for an OBJ signing to happen. Would general manager Joe Schoen even be interested? Beckham has battled countless injuries throughout his career, so this would be quite the risk. Having said that, it’s Odell Beckham freaking Jr. we’re talking about here. This would fill the seats at MetLife and have the Big Blue supporters jacked up. Make it happen, Mr. Schoen.
