Wide receiver plans to attend when camp begins

NFL: New York Giants-Minicamp NorthJersey.com-USA TODAY NETWORK

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. told media on Saturday that he will not hold out from training camp in an effort to pressure the organization into giving him a new contract.

Via Pro Football Talk:

Beckham hosted a football camp today and spoke very briefly to reporters, who asked him whether they’ll see him at training camp.

“Yes, you will,” Beckham answered.

So Beckham will not hold out?

“No holdout,” he said.

At the conclusion of mandatory mini-camp on Thursday, during which Beckham was a limited participant as he comes back from a fractured ankle, coach Pat Shurmur had said he expected Beckham to be in attendance when camp opened July 25.

Shurmur said that he had “no reason to believe” Beckham would not be in attendance.

Saturday, Beckham confirmed that he would, indeed, be at training camp.

Beckham, incidentally, appeared to have a great time entertaining youngsters during his camp in Metuchen, N.J.
