After their owner opened up the possibility of trading Odell Beckham Jr. by saying no one on the team was on “untouchable” it appears that the NY Giants are quietly listening to trade offers before this year’s NFL draft in late April.
According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the Giants have taken calls from teams interested in trading for Beckham but it’s still unclear if the team is serious about trading him this offseason.

#Giants GM Dave Gettleman says “next question” when asked if he wants Odell Beckham on his team. … He won’t respond to whether the #Rams contacted him. Won’t respond to the report that Odell won’t take the field unless he gets a contract extension.
More #Giants GM Dave Gettleman, when asked by @KimJonesSports if Odell can still be part of the solution: “Bottomline is, as Ernie (Accorsi) taught us, you don’t quit on talent.”
The #Giants are listening to trade calls/talks for Odell Beckham Jr and there have been several, I’m told. @wyche89 says the #Rams No. 23 pick is available. … what’s not clear is whether NY actually wants to trade him. Definitely open to listening, tho
While speaking with Golic and Wingo this morning, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter dropped a bomb when he revealed that he wouldn’t be shocked if the team traded Beckham before the draft.
The Giants reportedly want a first round pick for Beckham which doesn’t seem toO steep for someone with his skills.
