Details on the Record Setting Deal Odell Beckham Jr. is Expected to Command

Odell Beckham has been absent from Giants OTA’s and for good reason, as the star wide receiver wants to be paid as such.

Beckham – who has two years remaining on his rookie deal — is expected to command a “huge” salary that will be record-setting for a receiver, per ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.

Raanan believes thee 24-year-old’s extension will eclipse that of Antonio Brown, who signed a four-year, $68-million deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers in February.

Beckham’s deal will likely have an average salary in excess of $20 million per season, and a total package of more than $100 million — likely bigger than the $113 million that the Lions gave Calvin Johnson in 2012.

Beckham would be the first non-quarterback to push past that barrier of $20 million per.

Beckham has done more than exceed expectations after being taken 12th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft — as he’s been named to the Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons and has caught 288 passes for 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns over that time — with his rookie year when he had 91 receptions, 1,305 yards and 12 TDs as his worst.
