Will be updated.The New York Giants have opened their first organized team activities under new coach Pat Shurmur with star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.in the building.

Giants coach Pat Shurmur said the wide receiver, who has been widely rumoured with a trade away from NY, is in the building to begin their offseason conditioning programme. "I really believe that Odell is a professional. He wants to be great", Shurmur said (h/t Giants official Twitter). He's also the subject of a $15 million lawsuit from someone who says Beckham's security team assaulted him. "When you build a chemistry, you can't develop those relationships unless you're working together, that's why it's super important you have a high attendance rate at the offseason". Again, we had already started communication before all that information kind of got out there and was talked about a great deal.

I'm with OBJ on this one, and I'm glad he stood up for himself.

The wide receiver is still recovering from an ankle injury which sidelined him last season.

The 32-year-old has also scored the fifth-most points in league history (3,901) and won the 3-Point Contest in 2010 and 2016. The man himself had a huge smile on his face after the game, as he told ESPN: "It was excellent".

Regardless, Beckham is with the Giants now and should be as we enter the 2018 season, barring any other insane incidents that can push him out the door quicker. "That's why I raised my hand and told him, 'I'm here whenever you need me'".

Just as Beckham's presence can be overplayed, it also can be underplayed.

Manning said to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY when asked about Beckham's attendance: "I think it's important for the guys to be here, especially with a new offense ..." A three-time Pro Bowler, he has played in 47 games in his first four seasons, catching 313 passes for 4,424 yards and 38 touchdowns.

Beckham has been the subject of plenty of news in the offseason, most notably the Giants failing to declare him as "untouchable" and reportedly listening to trade offers. "It doesn't help. You don't know where these things get started or where it's going". I'm looking forward to him getting one day better by being here.
