Giants pick up 5th-year option on Beckham’s contract
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. | The New York Giants have picked up the fifthyear option on receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s contract.
The Giants announced the move Thursday, hours before the NFL draft began.
In each of his first three seasons, Beckham has led the Giants in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches. The 2014 first-round draft pick is the first Giants player to make the Pro Bowl in his first three seasons since Hall of Famer linebacker Lawrence Taylor (1981-83).
Beckham’s 1,367 receiving yards also were third in the league.
