“I know that Odell Beckham has told some people that he wants some really significant numbers," Garafolo said, per Bleacher Report. "... It's not gonna be top quarterback money, because top quarterback money is going through the roof.” Beckham is reportedly looking at a new contract that gives him somewhere in the low $20 million range per year.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is set to be the highest-paid wideout in the NFL next season at $17 million. If OBJ’s demands were to be met, he would not only supplant Brown, he would also spearhead a new financial threshold in the league for recievers.
Garafolo believes he “[doesn’t] see any way” that the Giants will meet him at his asking price. However, Beckham is a once-in-a-generation talent who can change the course of a game with a single catch. OBJ may not have the ball in his hands as much as a quarterback, but when you need a touchdown from distance, he's the player you want on your team.
