The New York Giants were one of the teams that were calling around during the NFL trade deadline trying to acquire a wide receiver after trading WR Kadarius Toney last week to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Ultimately, GM Joe Schoen couldn’t put together a deal that made sense but during his press conference, Schoen dropped a hint about their plans at upgrading their receiver room.
The Giants GM leaved the door open for a potential reunion with Odell Beckham Jr, who was apart of the Giants from 2014-19:
“He’s been a good player,” Schoen said. “He’s a guy we would consider and talk to when he’s healthy. Not sure where he is physically,” Schoen said. “Any player that can upgrade the roster we would consider and have conversations with their representatives.”
The reason Beckham remains a free agent is because he’s rehabbing from a torn ACL that he suffered during Super Bowl LVI when he was a member of the Los Angeles Rams.
Odell Beckham Jr. caught 390 passes for 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns in his five years with the Giants. In early October, his visit to the Giants’ locker room caused a stir, until it was revealed he was checking up on former Giants teammate Sterling Shepard, who had just torn his ACL.
