There’s a rumor making the rounds that a deal between the Giants and receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is done. But it’s not quite done yet.
Word is that Beckham is privately claiming that a new contract is in place. Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, the deal is close but not done.
The Giants and Beckham seem to be targeting Week 1 for a new contract. Several weeks ago, competing reports emerged regarding whether the Giants are willing to make Beckham the highest-paid receiver in the league, with characterizations of the team’s offer hinging on the “new money” fiction.
