Nothing like a little drama to make the offseason more interesting, right The New York Giants have certainly been surrounded by plenty of it as the future of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. appears to be in question.
Game Mens Jack Eichel Jersey It seems unlikely that the Giants would trade their best offensive weapon. But NFL insider Adam Schefter said recently during an appearance on the Ross Tucker Football Podcast the possibility of a trade is very real, absolutely real.
I can ignore it, Mayfield told MMQB.com. Although some things really tick me off and I want to prove them wrong. At the same time, it really doesn’t bother me that much, Mayfield added, because I know the people that say some of these things have never actually taken a snap behind center, never had a 300-pound lineman about to hit them while they have to read the defense downfield.
If I was worried too much about it, I’d be worried about the wrong things. But I do use some of it as motivation. I can listen to all the people patting me on the back, or I can listen to the people saying I need to get better. I know I need to get better, or else there would be nobody saying that. Fair enough.

LA has made trades like no other team this offseason, led by the acquisition of new starting cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. The Rams also sent former Pro Bowl edge rusher Robert Quinn to the Dolphins and signed current Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
A Beckham deal would go straight to the top of that star-studded marquee, and wide receiver is a need for the Rams after they failed to re-sign Sammy Watkins. But two factors make such a move undesirable and unreasonable for the Los Angeles.
Adding Beckham to an already volatile personality mix with Peters, Talib and Suh might be much too much to handle. The Rams also need to worry about paying Aaron Donald, the best defensive player in the NFL, what he Brandon Crawford Authentic Jersey wants beyond 2018. Taking on another contract concern from the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, in which Beckham was selected one spot ahead of Donald, would put the Rams in a tough situation with running back Todd Gurley and quarterback Jared Goff needing big deals, too, in the near future.
