- The New York Giants are asking for a hefty return for Odell Beckham Jr. in a possible trade.
- It remains to be seen if the Giants are truly willing to part with their star receiver.
- If Beckham does get traded, the Los Angeles Rams are a potential landing spot.
The New York Giants are seeking “at least two first-round picks” before they trade their star receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., according to ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter.
This report comes amid ongoing tension between Beckham and the Giants, and rumors have been circulating for some time now that the team may trade him. Beckham is also reportedly set to hold out if he does not get a contract extension, per Ian Rapoport.
However, Schefter also cautioned, “Doesn’t mean they get it, or close to it, or even trade OBJ. But they have asked for at least two first-round picks.”
Indeed, two first-round picks are quite a lot to ask of from a team, even in return for a player of Beckham’s immense talent. If right, it’s a sign the Giants aren’t yet desperate to get rid of their star player.
However, Schefter reportedly does expect Beckham to get traded eventually, albeit for a slightly lesser haul.
Just now on NFL Live, @AdamSchefter just predicted that Odell Beckham Jr WILL be traded for a 1st and 3rd or 4th round pick.

If Beckham does get traded, he could be going from Broadway to Beverly Hills, as a report from the New York Daily News indicates that the Los Angeles Rams – who are going all in on competing for a Super Bowl – have been pursuing a trade for Beckham.
