Some people may have been upset with NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen when he didn’t bring in wide receiver help before the deadline, but he may have bounced back in a big way. Earlier this week, Schoen was asked if he would be interested in signing Odell Beckham Jr., to which he said he’d certainly have some interest.

However, Schoen decided to take things one step further, admitting that he’s been in contact with OBJ’s reps. The two sides have discussed Beckham’s recovery from his torn ACL and much more. There’s no way Schoen would be in communication with Beckham’s people if there wasn’t legit interest here – which is why so many NY fans out there are cautiously optimistic.

NY Giants signing Odell Beckham Jr. needs to happen

"“He tore that ACL in February, so his timeline – we gotta figure out what that is, when’s he gonna be 100% healthy, what he’s looking for financially,” Schoen said. “There’s a lot of stuff that goes into it. Anybody that’ll upgrade our roster, at any position, we’re gonna pursue those and he checks that box of a guy we’re gonna continue to stay in contact with.”"

So, you’re telling us there’s a chance? What makes things even more intriguing is that Beckham was also at the Jaguars game, watching the Giants take down Jacksonville in thrilling fashion. Not only that, but it looks like Beckham reached out to Giants owner John Mara. That sure tells us that Beckham is thinking about donning Big Blue again.

This would be a perfect fit for the two sides. Beckham wants to play for a contender, which the G-Men are at 6-2. The Giants need a wide receiver to come in and make plays for Daniel Jones. A fully healthy Beckham can be a stud for Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka.

Not only that, but Beckham would really bring an exciting presence to this team and the locker room. Saquon Barkley would of course be over the moon to have his old friend on the same field with him again. The OBJ rumors will keep swirling with other teams, but everyone knows he belongs with the Giants.
