  • Jan 8 2017 Green Bay WI USA New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. during the game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field

Yes, Odell is in the building.

Hours after Ray Lewis accused Odell Beckham Jr. of "removing God from his life", the dynamic Giants wide receiver swiftly responded via his Instagram account.

Lewis also said, "I don't care about religion, I'm talking about a foundation". "This is the first day of work, this is the first opportunity to be here together". I'm looking forward to him getting one day better by being here and to him inspiring teammates to get better, because he's here and he's a terrific player. Nah, nah. What I'm disappointed in is that we had an agreement as men. "Quite frankly, I'm looking forward to the players challenging me to grow". However, he's coming off a season-ending ankle injury that would limit him to just four games last season.

Ray Lewis has a different take on Beckham's behavior, though.

"Certainly that communication is between me and him, " Shurmur said.

Shurmur plans to make some changes in the way the Giants do things.

As for the trade talk affecting Beckham, Shurmur said: "I'm not anxious about it".


Per Josina Anderson of ESPN, Beckham has a flight out of NY scheduled for later in the day, likely heading back to Los Angeles where he lives and trains in the offseason. We have a lot of people reporting about it, but it's always been the duty of elders to go back to help them.

"I believe Odell's a professional", Shurmur said on a conference call.

Giants owner John Mara did not rule out the possibility of the 25-year-old being involved in a trade and admitted he "wouldn't say anyone is untouchable". That opened the door for wild trade speculation and did prompt the Rams and a few other teams to inquire about the price tag.

It's still unclear if Beckham will be cleared for participation in any of those workouts, or if he will choose to participate if cleared without clarity regarding his future contract status.

"That's the business, " Shurmur said. "I'll speak with him and also devote my 2 pennies about everything, but he's must understand exactly what he feels would be ideal for him to get prepared and perform at a higher degree".

Beckham's presence is certainly to show his commitment to head coach Pat Shurmur and the franchise as he continues to seek a lucrative long-term contract extension in the aftermath of an incredibly speculative two weeks or so in which his name has been bandied about in league-wide trade rumors.
