On Wednesday, Giants GM Dave Gettleman told reporters that they “didn’t sign Odell to trade him.”
According to La Canfora, Giants HC Pat Shurmur “has been at wits end on how to manage him” and “a trade is certainly not out of the question.”
La Canfora’s sources have pointed to the 49ers and Raiders as being the “most likely strong suitors” if trade talks escalate this offseason.
Beckham, 26, was taken with the No. 12 overall pick by the Giants back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $10,406,198 contract before the Giants picked up his fifth-year option in 2017.
Beckham was set to make a base salary of $8,459,000 for the 2018 season when he agreed to a new five-year extension worth up to $95 million and includes $65 million in total guarantees. He stands to make base salaries of $16.75 million and $14 million over the next two years.
In 2018, Beckham appeared in 12 games for the Giants and recorded 77 receptions for 1,052 yards receiving (13.7 YPC) and six touchdowns.
