Odell Beckham Jr. might be finished volunteering his practice time.
Beckham did not show up Monday for the Giants' seventh of 10 voluntary organized team activities, marking the fourth straight practice he has missed. He attended the first three OTAs as well as the three days of a voluntary pre-draft minicamp.
Beckham's practice time thus far has been limited to individual running and catching drills as he rehabs his surgically repaired ankle, but coach Pat Shurmur said last week that his team's star wide receiver is "pretty close" to gaining clearance to return to practice on a full-time basis.
As the story goes on to say, the reason Beckham's continued absence is a big deal is because it feels like a precursor to a potential training camp holdout. Beckham wants a long-term contract extension as the highest paid receiver in the NFL—more than $17 million per year—and the Giants haven't shown much urgency to get a deal done.
