N.Y. Giants WR Beckham, Jr. Gets Record-Setting Deal
ESPN's Josina Anderson is reporting that the New York Giants and star wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. (pictured) have agreed to a contract extension that will keep him in Giants blue through the 2023 season.
Beckham is entering the final year of his rookie contract (at around $8.5 million), but he had been pining for a contract extension for the better part of two years.
His deal is for five years, $95 million total. $65 million of it is guaranteed, that's a record for wide receivers. It surpasses the money owed to start receivers Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, and Mike Evans. He is the fastest wide receiver in NFL history to 200 catches in his career.
