3 reasons a reunion between Odell Beckham Jr. and the NY Giants makes sense
By Reese Nasser
Odell Beckham Jr. reportedly made an appearance at the New York Giants training facility on Monday and fans continue to lose their minds. While it may have been to check in on wide receiver Sterling Shepard who is dealing with a torn ACL, it indeed is enough to throw people into a frenzy.
Beckham himself is still recovering from a torn ACL and is not yet ready to return to the field. But there is speculation that he could be back by November. And with the Giants currently sitting at 3-1 and in need of help at the wide receiver position, a reunion between both sides could potentially be in the card down the road.
Here are three reasons why a reunion between OBJ and the Giants makes sense:
3. It would signify a change of times within the franchise
The end of Beckham’s tenure with the Giants left a bad taste in many fans’ mouths. After five seasons of stardom, the stud receiver was traded to the Cleveland Browns. During his time with the Giants, Beckham put together one of the most prolific resumes in NFL history. In 59 games, he recorded 390 receptions for 5,476 receiving yards and 44 receiving touchdowns.
Now the regime that sent him away is gone and the new front office has been more willing to take chances. General manager Joe Schoen has seemed to be a man of the people, but bringing Beckham back would prove that this is a true change of times in the building.
Even after being away for three entire seasons, Beckham is still a fan favorite. With his connection with Saquon Barkley and others in East Rutherford, it is guaranteed that he would be welcomed back with open arms.
