The New York Giants might trade star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who declared that he will not play for his current team or any other team without a contract extension. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Insider reported that Beckham will not play without a new long-term deal, meaning that he will not participate in any team activity until he gets the contract that he wants and deserves. Recently, Beckham declared that he wanted to be the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL. Currently, Mike Evans is the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL after signing a five-year contract extension worth $82.5 million with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Beckham is scheduled to earn $8.46 million in the fifth and final year of his rookie deal.

Giants refuse to give Beckham a long-term deal

However, the Giants have refused to negotiate a long-term deal with Beckham, due to his character problems and off-field troubles. Recently, a controversial video of him surfaced in which he is holding a brown cigarette -- with a woman and suspicious-looking white powder near him. After the video surfaced, Giants team owner John Mara declared that while they are not shopping Beckham, the wide receiver is not untouchable and could be traded. “But when you're coming off a season where you're 3-13 and played as poorly as we played, I wouldn't say anyone's untouchable,” said Mara.

Beckham’s 2017 season was cut short by an ankle injury. Beckham played just four games last season, catching 25 passes for 302 yards and three touchdowns.

Jordy Nelson hurt by Packers release

Veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson admitted that he was hurt by the Green Bay Packers’ decision to release him after 10 seasons with the team.

In an interview with the "Wilde & Tausch Show," Nelson said he was anticipating that the Packers would ask him to take a pay cut, but it did not happen. "I think the hurt part was, to be honest, was the unwillingness to try to make it work," said Nelson, who was in the final year of the four-year, $39 million deal he signed with the Packers.

After he was released, the Oakland Raiders signed Nelson to a two-year deal worth $15 million. Last season, Nelson caught just 53 passes for 482 yards and six touchdowns. Nelson missed the whole of 2015 due to an ACL injury, but showed that he still has it, recording 97 catches for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns in 16 games the following season. In his 10-year stint as one of Aaron Rodgers’ primary targets, Nelson tallied 550 catches for 7,848 yards and 69 touchdowns.
