The question of whether or not Odell Beckham Jr. would attend the New York Giants mandatory mini-camp this week has apparently been answered. With the three-day mini-camp beginning Tuesday, Beckham is reportedly in the building for his physical.
I'm told #Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr is currently at the team facility. Physicals are today.— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) June 12, 2017
Despite all the fury over Beckham’s skipping the voluntary OTAs there really never seemed to be much doubt that the superstar wide receiver would attend the mandatory workouts.
Coach Ben McAdoo said last week that “I expect everyone to be here.” Beckham posted a workout video over the weekend with the hashtag “ImBack.’
There is certain to be a media frenzy in East Rutherford, N.J. on Tuesday as media swarms the Giants’ practice facility to both see and hear from Beckham, who has not spoken to Giants’ media since the end of the 2016 season.
Much has happened since then. GM Jerry Reese’s comments about Beckham needing to mature, his record-setting shoe deal, his absence from OTAs and speculation about his contract.
Perhaps this week we finally get some answers as to what Beckham thinks of all of this. At the very least, we get to see him on a football field.
[Update: Reports are that defensive end Olivier Vernon, who also skipped OTAs, has reported for his physical.]
