NFL Rumors: Giants Considering OBJ Reunion

After three years away that included delirious highs and heartbreaking lows, Odell Beckham Jr. may finally be returning home. According to general manager Joe Schoen, the New York Giants are considering a reunion with their one-time superstar wide receiver. Beckham tragically tore his ACL in the Super Bowl this February but has progressed enough in his recovery to potentially join up with a new team. The Giants are a surprise contender in the NFC at 6-2 and have an open spot at wide receiver after trading away Kadarius Toney.

Beckham initially entered the league as the Giants' 12th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He immediately burst onto the scene with an astonishing rookie season in which he averaged 108.8 receiving yards per game while totalling 12 touchdowns. Overall, he compiled 5476 receiving yards and 44 touchdowns in 59 appearances with the team before he was traded to the Cleveland Browns for several draft picks.

Beckham enjoyed mixed results in his years away from the Giants. His production and efficiency cratered, falling to 51.1 yards per game and a middling 7.3 yards per target in 37 appearances with the Rams and Browns. He also suffered a pair of ACL tears, one in each knee. However, he was a crucial contributor to the Los Angeles Rams' 2021 Super Bowl run, tallying 288 yards and two touchdowns in four postseason contests.

If Beckham is truly healthy, he could prove a huge asset to a Giants squad still in search of rhythm in the passing game. Despite their impressive record, the team ranks 30th in passing yards and 32nd in net passing yards per attempt.
