Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines for the end of your week.

Bennie Logan not surprised by Odell Beckham

Logan, the starting nose tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles, played two seasons of college football with Odell Beckham Jr. at LSU. While Beckham's ascent into NFL royalty has come quickly, Logan pointed out that Beckham did the same kinds of things, such as one-handed catches, while in college.

"The things he's doing now, he's been doing it for years, did it all the time in college,'' Logan said, as the Eagles prepare to meet the Giants and Beckham on Monday night. "People just see it more now, because this is the NFL. He's getting a lot more hype, but he's always been doing those things, making those kind of catches.''
