Reports have come in that Odell Beckham Jr has scored a 5-year, $95M contract extension with the New York Giants with $65M guaranteed. After missing most of last season with a broken ankle, the wide receiver is back in the game better than ever with the most guaranteed money ever given to a player with his position.
Antonio Brown was the highest paid wide receiver and will make $17 million this season, then Mike Evans ($16.5 million), DeAndre Hopkins and Brandin Cooks (both at $16.2 million).
The #Giants and WR Odell Beckham Jr have agreed to terms on a 5-year extension worth a whopping $95M, source said. He gets the highest guarantee ever for a WR at $65M and averages $20M over the first 3 years. Nice job by the #NYG and agent Zeke Sandhu getting this done.

God, what I would do with $95M.
