Good morning, New York Giants fans! The Giants’ offseason program begins today, Odell Beckham Jr. will be there, and it seems like everyone has a spin on why the star wide receiver will be in attendance for the voluntary conditioning work.

Here are a few of them:

Odell Beckham is sending Giants message with Day 1 show-up
Pat Shurmur would not have revealed “it is my understanding’’ Odell Beckham Jr. would be in attendance when the Giants open up their offseason workout...

As noted earlier by Gantt, it remains to be seen whether Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will actually set foot on a football field without a long-term contract. But Beckham reportedly will be joining the team for Phase One of offseason workouts, and that's a smart move by Beckham.

Given that, the Broncos would likely need to trade their first and second round picks this year and their first rounder next year to move up to the second overall pick. Even then, the draft value chart would put the Broncos a mere 180 points over the 2,600 price tag for that second overall pick.

It’s also likely the best deal the Giants could get from any other team in the NFL this year. They’d remain in the Top 5 and would likely presume another down year from Denver in 2019, which means another high first round pick.

The only question then would be whether John Elway likes a quarterback enough to give up some serious draft capital to acquire him.
