One team's trade interest in Odell Beckham got weird

Though he had long expressed a desire to get a new deal, Beckham didn't make major waves. He won't have to.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Giants and their superstar wideout have agreed on a five-year, $95 million extension, making him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.

The average annual value and amount of guaranteed cash are both new records for a receiver and surpass Antonio Brown's $17 million per year average salary in Pittsburgh and the $55 million in total guarantees Mike Evans received from Tampa Bay. Garafolo posted that the pact has a base of $90 million, with $41 million fully guaranteed at signing and an additional $24 million in injury guarantees. "Something tells me Lions fans would tell me I'm not realistic, even though Tate is entering the final year of his contract and the Patriots might have to do some cap maneuvering to bring him on".

Beckham, 25, has been seeking a big money extension over the past few seasons and it wasn't always a certainty that he was going to get one in NY.
