  • Giants Sign Odell Beckham Jr To 5 Year $95 Million Extension

    Odell Beckham Jr. agrees to extension to be highest-paid WR

    Odell Beckham Jr. has agreed to a five-year extension with the New York Giants that makes him the highest-paid wide receiver in football.

    The three-time Pro Bowler can receive a maximum $95 million over the course of the deal, with $65 million in guaranteed money, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson.

    The deal eclipses Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown's $17 million per year average and tops Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout Mike Evans' $55 million in total guarantees.

    Beckham is set to make $8.4 million on the fifth-year option of his rookie contract. The agreement reworks Beckham's 2018 contract into a $1.459 million salary with a $20 million signing bonus. The Giants will save $3 million against the cap.

    Beckham, 25, had at least 90 catches, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of his first three professional seasons. The No. 12 overall pick in the 2014 draft was quickest to 200 receptions and 3,000 yards in NFL history, needing just 30 games to accomplish both feats.
