The New York Giants haven’t expressed any interest whatsoever in the Cleveland Browns’ offer for star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
The Browns are going to Browns, as they always do, and the New York Giants aren’t holding anything back when it comes to their reaction to it.
The Giants have recently been fielding calls for their star receiver. They just signed Beckham to a 5-year $95 million contract extension before the 2018 regular season. Nothing will come to fruition for a trade most likely (and hopefully), but Giants GM Dave Gettleman isn’t exactly going deaf when it comes to listening to teams’ offers.
Dorsey reportedly offered guard Kevin Zeitler, defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah and one additional unnamed player for Beckham. Zeitler, of course, became a Giant earlier today due to the Olivier Vernon trade.
You can’t blame the Giants for laughing at this type of offer. It’s simply a lob-sided offer that wouldn’t benefit the Giants much and would bring great things to the Browns offense. No shot Gettleman would ever give up the generational talent that is OBJ for players such as those named.
Beckham is coming off a productive season for someone who only played 12 games. He missed the final four games due to a lingering quadriceps injury.
The veteran receiver out of LSU caught 77 balls in 2018 for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns. He also threw for two touchdowns this year on trick plays for Big Blue.
All I can say is this: I’m glad Gettleman made at least one decision this week that’ll be favored by Giants fans. Hopefully, no offer is made this offseason, I (along with many) would hate to see the Giants lose Beckham.
