Odell Beckham Will Become The Highest Paid Receiver In NFL History

Published

on

Odell Beckham Jr. and the Giants are in negotiations to make highest paid receiver in NFL history.

Beckham is in the last year of rookie contract and expressed that he wanted to be paid as much as an NFL quarterback in the past. Now the team and the 25-year-old star wideout are in talks to have a deal well over Antonio Brown’s $17 million a year.

Back in March, Mike Garafolo disclosed Beckham wants to become the highest-paid receiver in the league.

“I know that Odell Beckham has told some people that he wants some really significant numbers,” said Garafolo. “It’s not gonna be top quarterback money, because top quarterback money is going through the roof. He’s in the 20s. From what he has told people close to him, he wants to be in the low 20s.”

OBJ will earn $8.4 million in the final year of his rookie deal next season.

Rumor: Kawhi Leonard And Jimmy Butler Don’t Want To Join Lebron

Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler will both be the top NBA free agents in the summer of 2019.

Both players have been linked to possible joining Lebron James and the Lakers in 2019. Now according to The Ringers Kevin O’Connor both players are not interested in wearing the Purple and Gold.

“There are whispers around the league that neither Jimmy Butler nor Kawhi Leonard wants to play with LeBron, and sources I’ve talked to would be shocked if Klay Thompson left Golden State,” wrote Conner.

Leonard has expressed the possibility of him resigning with the Raptors. Before he was traded to the Raptors, Leonard was rumored to want to join one of the LA teams.

“I want to play here,” Leonard said. “I came in with an open mind. I want to do great things … focus on this year. If you’re looking toward the future, you’re going to trip over the present.”

Butler on the other hand clear wants out of Minnesota. He wants to sign with a team that has enough cap space to sign another big named free agent.

If the Lakers can not add Butler or Leonard is would be a setback for the Lakers. The team has the cap space to add one more big named free agent to join James. Magic Johnson wanted to sign Paul George in the offseason but he decided to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
