Like everything else Odell Beckham Jr. has done his rookie season, Eli Manning expects Beckham to make the most of this newest experience.
How Beckham handles his first offseason as a pro will help determine the level of success Beckham and the 6-10 Giants reach next season. Manning sure doesn’t want next season to end like this season.
“Not a fun day, it’s disappointing,” Manning said Monday at “Baggie Day” at the Giants training facility. “You have your good years and your bad years and you just have to learn from it.’’
Manning said Beckham, who was not available to the media, will face a much different challenge now.
“I think he has got things figured out,’’ the 11-year veteran said of the rookie. “I talked to him. He’s going to go back and start training in Arizona [at the Athletes’ Performance Institute] real soon. I think that is great.
It's amazing what Beckham did this season when he couldn't even get on the field in camp and in the early part of the season. After that he took off and exploded onto the scene finishing 2014 with a line of 91-1305-12 in 12 games. He'll be a highly-sought WR pick in next season's drafts.
