Odell will be in the building on Monday

NFL: New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

Josina Anderson of ESPN is reporting that New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will be attending the opening of the Giants’ offseason program on Monday.

Ultimately, whether or not Beckham attended the first day of the conditioning program isn’t a big deal. It is completely voluntary and limits imposed by the CBA mean that, at this stage, players can often get more work done on their own.

However, like a top quarterback prospect throwing at the Scouting Combine, it is still good to see and should be counted as a positive.

This should be counted as an act of good faith on behalf of Beckham, who is seeking a blockbuster contract extension while also coming back from a season-ending injury. It is also good that he will be there with his teammates as new players enter the locker room and the team transitions to a new head coach and offense.

While Beckham remaining in California to continue his rehab and training wouldn’t have been a big deal in the greater scheme of things, his presence is undeniably a good thing — for both himself and the team as a whole.
