Former New York Giants star wideout Odell Beckham's name was not listed in an informal “pick three” Twitter poll to determine the Giants' best players at each position.
Beckham had a rather rocky relationship with the organization prior to the trade that sent him to the Cleveland Browns, a notion which apparently has not been lost on the team (via Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk):
The Giants are taking heat on Twitter after posting an informal poll that omitted Odell Beckham.
The tweet asks fans to pick one quarterback, one running back and one receiver from the list of five players at each position. The players chosen are some of the best in team history at the three positions, making Beckham’s absence curious.
Animosities aside, there is no doubt Beckham deserves at least a shout as an all-time great in New York.
In just five seasons with the Giants, Beckham ranks second in receiving yards (5,476) and fourth in both receptions (390) and touchdown receptions (44). He also easily paces all Giants wideouts in receiving yards per game (92.8).
The accolades are there, as well. Beckham was named to the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons with the G-Men, and he went for over 1,000 yards in all but one season in New York.
The only thing lacking in terms of Beckham's Giants resume is playoff protection. New York made it to the playoffs just once during his tenure, and Beckham had just four catches for 28 yards during an NFC Wild Card loss to the Green Bay Packers in 2016.
