ODELL BECKHAM JR. SIGNS FIVE YEAR EXTENSION WORTH $95 MILLION
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. agreed to a 5-year extension that makes him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL on a $95 million max deal with $65 million total guaranteed.
The 25 year old will receive $20 million over the first three years. Since bursting onto the scene as the 12th overall draft pick in 2014, Beckham has set all kinds of records. As a rookie, he became the fastest player in NFL history to reach 100 career receptions (14 games).
He also had the highest average receiving yards total per game for any rookie ever (108.8) and was the only rookie to have at least 11 receptions in consecutive games in NFL history (Weeks 13 & 14 in 2014) and catch at least 12 balls, with 140-or-more yards and three touchdowns in one game
