New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman addressed the media on Friday and discussed the current wide receiver situation.
It hasn’t been a great few days for the New York Giants as far as their receiving corps. On Thursday, Sterling Shepard was diagnosed with a fractured left thumb and will now be evaluated on a week-to-week basis. Additionally, it was announced Friday morning that Corey Coleman tore his ACL and would be out for the season.
Giants general manager Dave Gettleman addressed the media prior to training camp practice on Friday. When asked about the current state of the receivers, Gettleman stated that they’ll “invite a couple of vets” to work out for them, per Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.
Gettleman was also asked about Odell Beckham Jr., who’s been in the news lately for his recent GQ article in which he threw shade at the Giants. Thereafter, the Giants general manager deflected any more questions regarding the former Giant.
Dave Gettleman: “Odell Beckham plays for the Cleveland Browns now. We’re moving on. Wish him the best.”
Faced with a follow up, Gettleman cuts it off and says “No more Odell questions.” #Giants

Gettleman also showed his confidence in Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones.
