Eli Manning 'Never Got Too Concerned' with Odell Beckham Jr. Trade Rumors

Ray Lewis chastised Odell Beckham Jr. yesterday, claiming he's let go of God and allowed "chaos" into his life.

Despite Beckham Jr.'s eventful off-season, which included several trade rumors, the 25-year old wide receiver arrived for the start of the Giants' voluntary offseason program under new head coach Pat Shurmur on Monday. I think it's important when those things happen to just have great communication with your coaches and with the ownership and whatnot and make sure everyone is on the same page. "He wants to be great", Shurmur said (h/t Giants official Twitter). He's a competitive guy.

"I just think it's very important that we're very professional, we communicate well together, and then there is going to be a transfer of information", he said. He spent the majority of last season on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Both are entering the final contract years and only one can get the franchise tag next offseason. I can't wait to see if OBJ stays or is traded by the NFL Draft, but until then, the saga continues...

3rd YouTube shooting victim now in fair condition
Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives searched two Southern California homes where Aghdam had lived. Authorities have said that Aghdam was angry about the YouTube's policies and practices and did not know the people she shot.

"I'm not anxious about it", Shurmur said, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. I'm looking forward to him getting one day better by being here.

"I started to see he started to distance himself a little more and a little more and a little more". But prior to that, Beckham has fallen out of favor with the New York Giants for antics on and off the field, which may have prompted Lewis' observation.

In fact, the Giants reportedly were actively shopping OBJ and apparently offered him up to an unidentified NFC team. Until he signs a new contract (with the Giants or anyone), there will be reason to wonder how committed to any cause he'll be. The three-time Pro Bowler has played in 47 games in his first four seasons, catching 313 passes for 4,424 yards and 38 touchdowns. "I know there's a resistance sometimes, but players need to be there, especially when you're adding new players, there's new schemes, it's really the best thing for them".
