New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. reportedly won't suit up for his squad until he has a new contract. Beckham, who is set to earn $8.46 million under a fifth-year team option, is hoping to earn much more—perhaps even as much as $20 million per year.

“Odell Beckham is not going to set foot on the field without a new contract agreed to, whether the Giants or whether anyone else," NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport said Monday morning.

Given Beckham's contract situation and off-the-field issues—he's currently facing a $15 million assault lawsuit—some have speculated the Giants may look to send Beckham to a new team. Adding fuel to that fire: Giants owner John Mara said "nobody's untouchable" over the weekend.


Mara said "we're certainly not shopping him," and it seems highly unlikely that New York would be receptive to offers, given Beckham's value to the team.

If you want to know why the Giants won’t trade Odell Beckham, these are Eli Manning’s stats with and without Odell on the field over the last three seasons:

Still, the rumors are out there. Fans are already speculating about Beckham's future and potential trade destinations.

Odell Beckham to the Carolina Panthers.
if Odell Beckham Jr comes to the browns... 🤔🤔
The giants are gonna trade Odell Beckham u heard it here 1st
Something tells me Odell Beckham won’t be with the Giants this season. Whether it’s because of a trade or a year long hold out. You can’t pay this guy guaranteed max money until he gets his act together off the field.
If im the @Giants I call the @buffalobills I call and offer the #2 pick for the two 1st round picks, another pick and a player and if they accept, then call the @Browns and offer Odell Beckham Jr and a 1st round pick for the #4 overall pick. They get picks and Saquon Barkley

The Giants currently hold Beckham under contract for the 2018 season and could exercise the franchise tag on him in 2019 and 2020.
