New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur said he expects wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.to attend offseason conditioning workouts in April. "I'd like him to be a Giant".

"We're always looking for a young, generational quarterback ... yeah, that's the urge", Shurmur said.

The Los Angeles Rams won the NFC West last season, but they are not resting on their laurels. Giants owner John Mara on Sunday expressed his disappointment in Beckham, saying no player is untouchable.

While the 25-year-old's antics are well documented-on Monday, as reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, he claimed that he would not play this season unless a contract extension is agreed-his talent remains unquestionable. "So to be clear: I'm not going to respond to questions about either report, and as I stated earlier, every decision I make is going to be in the best interest of the NY football Giants".


General manager Dave Gettleman is attempting to pull off a delicate balancing act, maintaining leverage in potential trade talks while refusing to publicly acknowledge or deny that Odell Beckham is available for the right price.

"We certainly are not shopping him", Mara said. Beckham will enter 2018 on the final year of his rookie deal, with the team having exercised his fifth-year option.

Said Shurmur on Tuesday: "I think it's important that you get all the information". Earlier in March, a video surfaced of the wide receiver with what appeared to be cocaine and a brown cigarette in hand. 'It's important as coaches and players and anybody who is working together to visit and get a chance to know one another. We're all a product of our experiences and our environment, and I think the one thing you respect about Ndamukong is, he doesn't shy away from some of the things that have gone on in the past. "I think it's important, especially in the player-coach relationship, to get to know him".

In the first three-plus seasons of his career, Beckham, the 2014 Offensive Rookie of the Year, has amassed 313 receptions for 4,424 yards with 38 touchdowns.
