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.
