NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Giants WR Odell Beckham "will not set foot on a field without a new contract extension agreed to." He's entering the final year of his rookie deal and is set to earn about $8.46 million, leaving him "just" 11th at his position in 2018 salary. Beckham's situation is complicated by his off-field antics, which include a recent viral video that appeared to show him partaking in some illegal substances. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation but would ultimately be surprised if Beckham misses time due to contract issues. He's a fine target in the back half of the 1st round of early best-ball drafts.
Giants WR Odell Beckham showed up for the start of the team's offseason program on Monday. It's at least a small olive branch amid an offseason of trade rumors and holdout threats. The drama isn't necessarily over yet. The trade rumors figure to persist at least until the NFL Draft is over. And Beckham could still stage a training camp holdout if he doesn't get a new contract. But the odds that he's a Giant in 2018 look better now than they did a couple of weeks ago.
Giants HC Pat Shurmur said from the Combine on Wednesday that he doesn't know if WR Odell Beckham will be ready for training camp.

We'll continue to keep a close eye on OBJ's progress.
Giants HC Ben McAdoo announced Monday that WR Odell Beckham will undergo surgery on his fractured ankle and miss the rest of the season. He finishes with a 25-302-3 line in 4 appearances. Beckham will now have missed 17 games in 4 NFL seasons. He should be ready in plenty of time for the start of the 2018 campaign, which is currently scheduled to be a contract year for a guy who will still be only 25.
Giants WR Odell Beckham suffered a fractured ankle in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
