sounds about right. Might be able to get him for less.

Listen...he is getting 8 this year. If we Franchised him the following year he gets say $17M...probably not that much.

If you sign him now...you get a discount for doing so. Look at Nicks, he never got paid. OBJ knows he needs to get his money NOW. He will take a discount to get it. One hit and it is all over.

His injury is so overblown  
UConn4523 : 2/9/2018 6:03 pm : link
it wasnít a ligament. All reports say it was a clean break. Broken bones heal well unless you are rushed back (Dez Bryant).

We shouldnít have traded him 2 years ago and we shouldnít trade him now. What funniest bout this suggestion is Reese and McAdoo would have gotten to use those supposed picks from Beckham which would have been awesome, right?

We have someone who structures great contracts and we arenít in cap heíll nor will be with a fully paid Beckham. Itís unreal how people donít see this.

There is this thing called a salary cap. It limits the amount of money teams can spend per year on players. So it is resource management. Putting a large cap number into a WR, considering how vulnerable they are when hit and how much they depend on their speed and explosiveness, we as Giant fans know they are one injury away from being out of the league. What if Nicks or Cruz had a contract like Odell wants? It isn't signing Beckham that makes it less likely we win a a SB. It is HOW MUCH we sign him for...How much is too much for BEckham...At what point would you say no?

Thegratefulhead : 2/9/2018 6:12 pm : link
Players are hitting low because of fines and penalties. Odell was hit low. What happens the next time he is hit low? He is great, he changes how the defense plays us. I get all of that. I love watching him. Very risky putting that much Cap/Gmoney into him.

I don't see how you can pay Beckham his market rate. He's eventually going to be playing with a young QB who will need a year or so to get his bearings.


I'd rather have Odell than Bolles and a LB and it isn't even close.

ajr2456 : 2/9/2018 6:15 pm : link
argument is stupid. There's no direct correlation, just a lot of coincidence. You can do this with any position.

Take a look at the cap hits for QB's. Only 7 times from 1994-2016 did the winning team have a QB with taking up double digits in the cap hit.

Maybe we should have traded Eli for a couple of firsts before paying him.
Cap Hit - ( New Window )
There is always going to be a risk of injury.  
Keith : 2/9/2018 6:20 pm : link
With Odell and with every player in the NFL. This wasn't the kind of injury that makes you fear future injuries. You can't let elite talent walk away at 25 years old because of a freak injury that he's expected to come back 100% from.

You also can't let him walk away because of money when you are paying your 37 year old, twilight of his career, QB elite money. You let Eli go and sign Odell if you are that limited with money. The Giants aren't, but the point remains.

The next point is regarding the cap. It's not like the NBA, you can easily manipulate contracts in the NFL to make it work. The Giants have plenty of levers to pull to create money when needed, it shouldn't be a concern at all. Certainly not of a concern where you let a superstar go.

You know whats funny about that list? A large portion of those QB's probably made more money than 99% of the league, yet the cap hit may not say so. Why? Because the cap hit number can be manipulated in a number of different ways and it's the only number fans should care about. Average contract value means absolutely nothing.

In fairness, except in a year when a player collects his signing bonus, his cap number will never be lower than his cash earnings for that season. The signing bonus is the only element that gets amortized (which subsequently leads to the cap number being higher than cash earnings in the other seasons of the contract). So unless those QBs happened to receive a signing bonus in those seasons in which they won the SB, they didn't make more real dollars than their cap hit reflects.

Weíd have a 3-13 year like we just did, which is better than an 8-8 year whether fans want to endure it or not.

Thereís a risk even with trading, you can end up with another Flowers and no Beckham because you didnít want to fork over some cap room which is easily manipulated.

Which will also happen with Beckham. Like Keith said the only number that matters is the cap number.

Performance bonuses, roster bonuses, converting bonuses to salary, adding years, etc...there are a number of different ways to manipulate the cap number and the player would get paid more than their cap dollar. The Cowboys have players who adjust their contracts yearly and see more than their cap number. Obviously they are robbing peter to pay paul and will eventually have to pay the piper, but teams routinely do these things to massage the cap number.

Shit, apparently you can funnel money through their charities to save money on the cap, lol.

You really arenít making much sense on this thread. If anyone busts their ass 24/7 itís Beckham. And considering he didnít blow his hand off Iíd say heís more moreture than JPP.

Also, I can guarantee that this question was asked of both Gettleman and Shurmur in their interviews:

"How do you deal with Beckham if he continues to act out of control on the field and hurts the team?"

Their answer was a huge part of why each was hired. I doubt their answer was a shoulder shrug and a comment about how you gotta let dogs be dogs.

I keep thinking of how John Mara must feel when he watches his star player score a TD and lift his leg like a dog to piss, or get ejected for repeated fighting, or going on shirtless boat trips before a playoff game . He knows that's not the Giants way and not how the team wins titles. Believe it or not the Giants are historically one of the most successful franchises in NFL history, and their way of doing business does work.

I doubt that they are going to let some chucklenuts continue to act out like a petulant child and not toe the line of team before player, I don't care how marketable he is.

This is all the same reasoning that leads me to believe that Darnold is the prize of the Giants eye. That kid SCREAMS Giants type player.

If that was a question asked of them  
UConn4523 : 2/9/2018 9:01 pm : link
it means Beckham is staying or why bother focusing on that? His behavior is so overblown itís comical. If I didnít know any better Iíd think he gets ejected every game by the comments on these threads.

Michael Irvin put scissors to his teammates neck and was blowing lines 24/7. Cowboys did fine. Randy Moss caught what should have been the game winning TD in the Super Bowl.

Cam Newton made it to a Super Bowl. LT worked out well for the Giants. Ray Lewis was a suspect in a homicide.

a) What did Cam Newton ever do? He has a poor attitude sometimes when things aren't going well but I've never seen him get ejected for fighting or multiple 15 yard celebration penalties.

b) Ray Lewis actually did participate in killing someone. He turned state and then got amnesia knowing they were never really going to push the issue.

I find it laughable that some of you just overlook the baby shit that Beckham pulls. He is EXACTLY who Gettleman was talking about when he said he needs professional football players not men/kids who play professional football.

I actually only put the odds of Beckham being a Giants by the draft at 50/50. Trading him is EXACTLY the type of move that Gettleman wasn't afraid to do in Carolina.

Your depiction of him is so far out of touch that I canít take your stance seriously.
He didnít trade Josh Norman  
UConn4523 : 2/9/2018 10:27 pm : link
he chose not to resign him because he didnít think he was worth the money and was a product of the system. Couldnít be any different of a scenario, holy shit.
Those are comparable to Odell how?  
ajr2456 : 2/9/2018 10:29 pm : link
Steve Smith was 35 years old. Norman

Quote:
So either Norman had expressed his willingness to stage a messy, sit-out over the franchise tag, or the Panthers are/were really dubious about his abilities and long-term prospects. Or the franchise was feeling extra charitable, and knowing they couldnít deliver a big contract next year, and wanted to release Norman to get his money while he still canówhich Norman did by signing a $75 million deal with the Redskins immediately after being shown the door in Carolina.


So how does that compare to Odell? You continue to make shit up and dodge questions.
C'mon man...  
NYG07 : 2/9/2018 10:30 pm : link
Trading a 25 year old superstar receiver, arguably the greatest of all time through the first three years of his career is not comparable to cutting a formerly great receiver near the end of his career or pulling the tag on a 28 year old late round CB coming off his first year as a starter asking for insane money.
Trading  
mattyblue : 2/9/2018 10:42 pm : link
Odell is such a dumb idea. You will never get value. He is an absolute beast and takes over games. His is very charitable off the field, doesnít beat woman, doesnít carry around guns, do drugs etc... we struck gold when we drafted him. Heís gonna get a big contract and he deserves it. Luckily for us the bulk will come when Eliís money is gone. I canít believe people want to get rid of him because he gets emotional. He has a very good chance of breaking all receiving records. Why would you trade the best young WR in a pass happy league?
OBJ  
Dragon : 2/9/2018 11:37 pm : link
Is not going to sign for more than four or five years and he will at some point of this contract top the twenty million mark. There are a lot of great players in the NFL but being OBJ, playing in NY, his pre game and game performances are the greatest show in the NFL.

Itís not about anything more than a QB who just started what four games signed a deal for 27 million for five years. If your agent canít get the greatest performer in the NFL without a doubt in the biggest media capital of the world twenty million Feed Him to the Lions. Love OBJ but his market value and this teams CAP situation just donít add up to a good ending if he resigns. If you move many of the other CAP problem players it works but if you keep them and sign him welcome to CAP truly HELL.

If your agent canít get the greatest performer in the NFL without a doubt in the biggest media capital of the world twenty million Feed Him to the Lions. Love OBJ but his market value and this teams CAP situation just donít add up to a good ending if he resigns. If you move many of the other CAP problem players it works but if you keep them and sign him welcome to CAP truly HELL.


Eli has had over a $20 million cap hit and not to long ago they spent $100 million on defense.

Bullshit. This team has a few outrageously overpaid players that do not earn it. Odell would not be one of them. He is not only by far the best player on the Giants, he is among the top 10 players in the league. You don't just ship off a talent like that for a few unknown draft picks.

I really don't understand why people are having so much trouble with this. I think they should bite the bullet now and move on from Eli but either way 2018 is likely Eli's last year with the team. So when Rosen or Darnold are making $6M a year and Eli's contract is off the books, it will be no issue whatsoever fitting Beckham in the cap. Not only that, you will be thanking the Lord that our new young QB has a guy like that to throw to.

argument is stupid. There's no direct correlation, just a lot of coincidence. You can do this with any position.

Take a look at the cap hits for QB's. Only 7 times from 1994-2016 did the winning team have a QB with taking up double digits in the cap hit.

Maybe we should have traded Eli for a couple of firsts before paying him. Cap Hit - ( New Window )



You know whats funny about that list? A large portion of those QB's probably made more money than 99% of the league, yet the cap hit may not say so. Why? Because the cap hit number can be manipulated in a number of different ways and it's the only number fans should care about. Average contract value means absolutely nothing.


In fairness, except in a year when a player collects his signing bonus, his cap number will never be lower than his cash earnings for that season. The signing bonus is the only element that gets amortized (which subsequently leads to the cap number being higher than cash earnings in the other seasons of the contract). So unless those QBs happened to receive a signing bonus in those seasons in which they won the SB, they didn't make more real dollars than their cap hit reflects.



Which will also happen with Beckham. Like Keith said the only number that matters is the cap number.

I'm as in favor of extending Beckham as anyone (maybe even more so), without qualifiers or what ifs. But with all due respect, I don't think either of you are really describing contract mechanisms correctly with regards to cap number.

All the stuff Keith mentions above is irrelevant except for the one thing he got backwards - converting salary to bonus (and only specifically in the form of a signing bonus, as I originally said) is the only way to amortize money across an NFL contract. All the other bonuses that Keith mentioned work just like salary in the year they're due. With that one and only exception of a signing bonus, it is not possible for a player to earn more real dollars than his cap number in any given season.
Give him 6 years 100 million

who are sleeping...

Eli Manning career stats as of week 2 2017:

Targeting Odell Beckham: 63%, 35-7 TD/INT, 111.4 passer rating

Targeting anyone else: 59.5%, 285-209 TD/INT, 79.9 passer rating.

Can you even begin to contemplate trading Beckham when you see this? I also believe Eli is a HOF QB. The proof is right here.

I am 30 so I never got to see LT play...but for my generation Odell is LT. He is that good. Pay the man and he will help us win a Superbowl in the future

with the "When was the last time someone won a SuperBowl with a WR/RB" bullshit?

If you are suggesting that signing Beckham somehow makes it less likely that they win a Superbowl that is idiocy, if that's not the suggestion then the argument itself is meaningless nonsense. Which is it?


The answer to your question btw is just this past Sunday. The Eagles signed two big ticket WRs last offseason.
Odell

Is not the real issue itís the other players grossly overpaid that present the CAP problems going forward. Each year in theory the CAP goes up but these players contracts also increase plus who will be the next overrated player they resign. These players have a much higher dollar value of themselves then realistic but they keep getting paid you have to stop that.

In reality in FA how many players have earned the big contracts signed by the Giants, Strahan, Barber, Eli his first extension, there are a few others but due to injuries or whatever for the most part itís a loosing process. These players for the most part last three to five years in the NFL the odds after that decline drastically. FA Itís a flawed system why continue to use something thatís proven to be flawed over and over?

So because other players are overpaid weíre going to get rid of Odell? Youíre not making any logical points.

Keith : 2/10/2018 10:54 am : link
I understand what you are saying, but you are missing my point. Example, you have a contract worth ..6 years-102 million with 40 gtd. On average, that player makes 17M per, but his cap number could be:

Year 1: 8M
Year 2: 12M
Year 3: 15M
Year4: 22M
Year 5: 25M
Year 6: 28M

So in year 4, the player converts his salary to a signing bonus and adds 2 years and his cap number never touches the average salary of 17M per. Maybe I did s poor job of explaining what I meant,but thatís my point.

Your argument makes no sense. So what is your solution? Playing money ball and flipping vets for draft picks to have a team full of players on rookie contracts and cheap vets?

So just because the Giants have given out bad contracts in the past they should just avoid giving a massive contract to the one player on the team that absolutely deserves it?

obviously the same part that you don't seem to get is that compared to a lot of teams we are definitely not well under the cap and after we sign our draft choices we might have enough money for one decent FA.
