Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. isn’t going anywhere as Jerry Reese and the New York Giants pick up his fifth-year option.

According to Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network, the New York Giants picked up the fifth-year option for wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Monday. Jones said that the Giants should announce the news before the draft on Thursday.

The fifth-year option raises the wide receiver’s cap number from $3.3 million in 2017 to $7.84 million in the final year of his rookie deal, according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. The option can be rescinded and is guaranteed for injury only.

Beckham was drafted by the Giants in 2014. He has tallied 288 receptions, 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns in his first three seasons, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN. He has also made three Pro Bowls.

On Monday, the wide receiver promised to be the best that he can be on Twitter.

“Just wanna say today I woke up feeling extremely blessed. The start of a new chapter in my life began this [past] week,” he tweeted.  “I will be workin harder than I ever have, to be the best that I ever have been. I’m more motivated now then I have ever been.”

He added, “Words are only that, so [it’s] time for action,” he continued. “To the LOYAL Giants fans out there. I’m lettin u kno now, this will be somethin uve never seen. I’m in the lab. Head down, my fire has been lit and the world continues to fuel it. It’s time to be exactly who u are, I’m goin for it all.”

The Giants picking up Beckham’s option isn’t a surprise since they were expected to do so. Beckham is one of the best receivers in the league and for Jerry Reese, this was a no-brainer.
