    Should Odell Beckham Jr. just wait to sign until after the season?


    It’s December 3. Week 13 has begun. Odell Beckham Jr. hasn’t played since February. He has visited one team. It’s unclear when he’ll sign.

    It’s even less clear when he’ll play. And once he does play, how long until he makes a contribution?


    We made the point earlier this week, in response to comments from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones regarding the importance of Beckham making an impact in 2022. It’s unreasonable to expect him to do so; any positive contributions he makes in 2022 should be regarded as a bonus.


    I’m reiterating the point because, at some point, Beckham may need to just pull the plug on trying to play in 2022 and focus on 2023. It seems as if he’s using the vague promise of being a major difference-maker over the balance of the season as a way to maximize his overall contractual haul. And that’s fine. It’s smart. He’s pitting two bitter rivals against each other, in the Giants and the Cowboys.


    Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com tweets a belief that Beckham wants to sign with the Giants, citing the “lure of coming to NY, making it a home for his family and winning in this city,” along with “unfinished business.” But the question is whether the Giants, who drafted Beckham in 2014 and gave him a major second contract in 2018, will pay Beckham what he wants.
    “Want me to be okay with losing? Nah.”
    “Want me to be okay with our level of play? Nah.”

    Re: Any Word on OBJ?

    If he signs with the Giants, it won't be about paying for a chance to get a Super Bowl win. It's about a big contract on the biggest stage in the league. I don't hate him for having those motives, but there's no love lost either.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    I'm the most reasonable poster here. If you don't agree, I'll be forced to have a hissy fit.

    It'll be about the Benjamins that's clear if he goes to New York.

    I still wonder if he'll get on the field at anytime this season or post season .... got my doubts.

    Re: Any Word on OBJ?

    The Giants are the only team that will sign him this year if he can’t contribute this. It makes no sense for the Bills or Cowboys to pay him if he can’t produce this season. There will be free agents available next spring that will help both teams next year.

    Re: Any Word on OBJ?

    Well, he stopped by to have a Keystone Light and we got into an argument because he still owes me for a batch of train looted My Pillows, and doesn't want to pay me. Can't really say what he's thinking besides that it should be that he'd better pay me for those damn pillows.

    If I can in town and you served me Keystone light, I wouldn’t pay you either. At least you could have served full strength Keystone, lol!

    Well, I'm kind of short because someone owes me for a bunch of pillows. I took a dive on my Twitter stock because Musk told me he wasn't going to do anything and won't return my calls now.

    Keystone light. I’m a recovers alcoholic and

    1. Never drank that on purpose. Well except for a “BYO s*** light beer” poker game.

    2. keystone light drinkers are secretly shunned at meetings.

    The driver they sent for him found him face down out in his Chili at the Airport Wendy's.
