Giants general manager rules out trading Odell Beckham
Over the last few days, there has been increasing speculation whether Odell Beckham Jr. would again be on the trading block this offseason.
But the star wide receiver isn’t going anywhere, New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman told reporters on Wednesday.

The Giants signed Beckham to a five-year, $90 million extension last August. The 26-year-old went on to have a productive season recording 77 catches for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games before sitting out the last four weeks with a quad injury.
Last offseason, the Giants explored trading Beckham and reportedly discussed a deal with the Los Angeles Rams. But New York opted to keep their wide receiver instead.
The Giants finished 5-11 in 2018 and have the sixth pick in the draft.
