Giants coach Pat Shurmur prioritizing getting to know Odell Beckham Jr

Odell Beckham Jr. and New York Giants fans' heads might still be spinning after what turned into a hectic Monday.

Of course, all this could change if the Giants were given an offer for the wide receiver which they couldn't refuse, and considering Beckham has said he wants a contract where he is earning $20 million a year, nothing should be considered off the table yet.

Rapoport has reported Beckham won't play next season-"with the Giants or any team"-until he receives a new contract".

"Bottom line is, as Ernie [Accorsi] taught us, you don't quit on talent", Gettleman said when asked if Beckham can be part of the solution in NY, via NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

While Beckham only attended mandatory offseason activities last season, choosing to train in Los Angeles instead, Shurmur said it's especially crucial for him and other players to be there this season with a new coaching staff coming in.

As all of the owners and general managers are meeting in Orlando for their annual meeting, Giants co-owner John Mara was put on the spot about his best player.

"He's on our team right now", Shurmur said Tuesday morning.

"When too much becomes too much, I think everyone's aware of it", Tisch said.

One thing we know about Dave Gettleman: he does not suffer high-maintenance players lightly. Earlier in March, a video surfaced of the wide receiver with what appeared to be cocaine and a brown cigarette in hand. I really don't think you can know somebody by seeing reports, reading reports, hearing what people think and say. We want guys that understand the importance of relationships, which means they want to be coached. "I got a little better sense of who he is".

Beckham was limited to four games last season because of ankle injuries.

Shurmur actually appreciated Mara's message that no one, not even Beckham, is untouchable. "I understand that. It's sort of refreshing to know that we're going to look under any rock and turn over every stone that we can to make sure we make the NY football Giants the best team we can make it".
