The New York Giants have been in the headlines a lot over past few weeks with speculation surrounding what they'll do with the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and the status Odell Beckham Jr's future with the team.
As trade rumors swirl about arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL, the Giants weigh their options with there seemingly being plenty of interest in the perennial Pro Bowler's services. Apparently, New York received their first trade offer for Beckham right after the controversial video of him surfaced, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
A possible Odell Beckham Jr trade was broached publicly this week, but it wasn’t the first time it became a topic for the #Giants. I’m told they got their first trade offer right after the viral pizza video came out. It was real low and they said 👎🏼.

Beckham could be a game changer for a lot of teams in the league. Although he wants to get paid a hefty sum in a new contract before the upcoming 2018 campaign, he's as productive a player as there is in the NFL at his position and might be worth the risk for teams in need of a boost offensively.
The Los Angeles Rams have emerged as a team that might be the favorite to land Beckham if the Giants do intend on moving the 25-year-old. Los Angeles has been pulling out all the stops during the NFL offseason to improve their roster in every way possible, especially on the defensive side of the football.
Along with recently adding defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh on a one-year deal, the Rams acquired Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib in trades with the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos to bolster their secondary.
Needless to say, the Rams brass has been aggressive in their efforts to improve the team and now they may have turned their attention to Beckham to give Jared Goff another weapon in the passing game. The Giants, however, seem focused on the upcoming draft and may look to get a deal done before draft day next month with the team rumored to be asking for picks in exchange for the three-time Pro Bowler.
