    Yes because hes probably the biggest name in the nfl and he is still only 25 way less younger then ab and julio

    The Giants started to fall apart when it became the Eli/Beckham show. All the players on a team need to be the stars, not just a select few.

    I miss cruz so much. I wore my cruz jersey the other day. Although he's not playing on the field whenever I see him in interviews I always smile. ❤️️

    Just coming off an injury year I’d say no. The NFL is all about what have you done for me lately.

    Is he great? Yes. Was he the best in the league last year? No, not when your riding the bench. Injury prone WR. Nope!

    It all depends on what your agent is able to negotiate. If we're both 1000+ yard receivers with similar talent and abilities, but my agent can get me 10 million more than your agent can get you, then I deserve it. It's not like the NFL is a traditional 9 to 5 where salaries are pretty much set in stone.

    No I think TO should he’s on the Madden cover hopefully he doesn’t have the curse this season I think it’ll be another pro bowl hopefully he doesn’t get laid out in Dallas again

  • Marquise DeShaw-Injustice

    Take Odell and put him on the team that has your favorite wr he's excelling beyond their ability I guarantee you

    love how they always say “when u look at the numbers” show the numbers i guarantee you’re wrong lol. antonio brown is the best WR in football rn.

    all they said was marketing ..UMM the giants aren’t going to the super bowl any time soon who gives a fuck about a jersey sale. no disrespect but you guys dick hugging

    I dont think theres one wide reciever that brings more revenue into the NFL then Odell. He is the face of football an oh yea go check the stat book!!

    Meh... he isn’t a “winner”. He is a whiner.. but he is talented. It’s a matter of mixing the right culture to compliment his crybaby mentality. He can deserve it, but I won’t vouch for his impact on an entire team

    Odell > Eli
    Eli $ > Odell $
    Sounds about white.

    Julio. Freak. Jones.
    Zero drama, big production.

    He should be because its about timing with nfl contracts he's the next in line to reset the market, if he doesn't become the highest paid WR it will only hurt the players in the long run

    I know people saying AB and Julio better, that’s fair but let’s not forget who’s at the top of the QB market. Not Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees. I’m sorry but if Sammy Watkins (who I think people sleeping on) getting 16M, Odell deserves to reset the market. Let’s not forget that he’s only 25 and oh by the way, that super bowl winning QB down in NY looks like trash when he’s not there.
