I would be shopping Beckham on the market for trade bait. If a team is willing to give us a "great" deal then I'd go for it. Beckham is easily the most talent WR the Giants have ever had, but he's also a freak show.
I'll be honest, I'm not opposed to this right now.
Look at the Cleveland Browns 2018 Draft Picks. They have (2) 1st Round Picks, (3) 2nd Round Picks, (1) 3rd Round Pick, (2) 4th Round Picks, (2) 5th Round Picks, (2) 6th Round Picks, and (1) 7th Round Pick.
Now look at their projected cap room for 2018 according to Over The Cap. They have a projected $55 Million in cap room.
So there's a team that could realistically afford to give up a 1st rounder and 2nd rounder for Beckham and they would still have a 1st rounder and a 2nd rounder for example. And they also have the ability to sign him to the contract he is looking for.
Maybe trading for a player with Beckham's abilities could be a boost to a team re-building and bring that star power to the Browns, I don't know just thinking out loud.
I want Beckham to be a Giant for life, but if he is going to act this way and now you have the owner publicly making a statement during the season that he is very unhappy could head us down the path of him being trade.
Add to it that you'd be sending him to Cleveland of all places and it makes it more intriguing.
2 #1's and Joe Thomas and that's a done deal. A #1 and #2, no thanks! 2 #1's... hard to imagine getting a better return for a 4th year player that's not a franchise QB, but I don't know if I could take that. He's too good. You see how really bad our team is when he's not our there at 100%. BUT, the last thing I would do is give him a long term big money deal. I don't trust him mentally number one, and also I don't trust anyone in this league with injury history. If we could get Cleveland's #1 next year there's a good chance the best non-QB offensive player would be there. And if we trade Odell to get that pick there's a good chance we'd be drafting right up there as well.
Mara is very unhappy, but he will pay big money to Beckham anyway ! John Mara , who I used to have a great deal of respect for, is starting to look and sound more and more like the idiot son every day. Beckham is making Mara look like a chump, and Mara will end up regretting signing Knucklehead Smith long term!
My friend said that when the time comes for the Giants to call him about his season tickets, he plans to invoke Mara's words and tell them that he "doesn't want to have a discussion about it, but he's very unhappy with the behavior of Giants' ownership!"

frateb: man, for a second i thought detroit was going to pull this one out... i think that would have given us a chance to get as low as 2nd again?

rodney27: You're right about the fumbling problem, tl65taog. I just don't think it can be fixed. He had in preseason, has it at a record pace now, and had the same problem at Duke. If he hasn't fixed it in all that time...I just don't know if he can.

tl65taog: yes the fumbling problem has to be fixed, but you have to be fair about it
