Could Odell Beckham Jr.’s offseason home near Hollywood become his permanent residence
The Los Angeles Rams have inquired about trading for the Giants star, as first reported by the Daily News and confirmed by other outlets. Other NFL teams are sure to pick up the phone as well after Giants co-owner John Mara declared no players on the roster untouchable.
But Giants general manager Dave Gettleman skirted or declined to answer specific Beckham trade and holdout questions it at the NFL Annual Meeting. He started his press briefing Tuesday at the NFL Annual Meeting by reading a statement.
You don’t quit on talent, Gettleman said in his most revealing answer.
When pressed by a reporter to publicly commit to Beckham as a long-term Giant, Gettleman kept repeating He is on our team. He praised Beckham for working his fanny off.

I haven’t had the opportunity, Gettleman said.
The lack of communication could be interpreted as a freeze-out or a bad sign from Gettleman and Giants co-owner John Mara. Coach Pat Shurmur met with Beckham in Los Angeles.

It’s what we expected, manager Alex Cora said. We know how special they can be.
