The New York Giants inked their All-Pro WR Odell Beckham Jr. to a five-year, $95 million extension. The deal includes $65 million in guarantees as well. This makes OBJ the highest paid WR in NFL history. He can buy a lot of kicking nets with that type of money. This deal comes not even a year after Beckham suffered an ankle injury in Week 5 of last season against the Los Angeles Chargers. This shows the level of comfortability Giants have when it comes to Beckham.
Beckham is one of the most exhilarating players to watch in the NFL. The Giants and Beckham both wanted to get a deal done before the season got underway. Both sides came out getting what they wanted. Beckham wanted to be the highest paid WR in the NFL, Giants wanted to lock up arguably their best player on the team long-term.
When you first think about it, you don’t come to the conclusion: this contract was a bargain. But when you thoroughly think about it and process everything, it absolutely is. Just think of the difference Beckham makes on and off the field. There’s a reason why everyone talking about his new deal is saying it is warranted. Here’s a couple of current players congratulating him on his extension.
Big Congrats to @OBJ_3 well deserved.. Keep setting the standard for greatness.
