Odell Beckham in the Building for Team Workouts

Odell Beckham in the Building for Team Workouts

Yes, Odell is in the building.

Odell Beckham Jr. reaffirmed his relationship with the Giants on Monday, showing up for the start of the team's offseason workouts. But Shurmur doesn't want to get into all of that. "This is the first day of work, this is the first opportunity to be here together. Quite frankly, I'm looking forward to the players challenging me to grow".

The news comes after a Friday SNY report noted it was "highly unlikely" the Giants would move on from Beckham.

Former Giants offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz reported that Flowers, along with now former teammate Bobby Hart, both refused to play in the Week 17 game against the Washington Redskins last season. However, he can be a distraction when his emotions get the best of him on the field and when he does foolish things off the field, like taking a trip to Florida in the week leading up to a playoff game after the 2016 regular season.

Shurmur said at the National Football League owner meetings in March: "All indications is Beckham Jr is ready to play come the start of the season in September".

Asked if he specifically questioned Beckham if there were drugs in the hotel room, Shurmur said, "That's private between Odell and myself, but we talked about the video".

Shurmur isn't anxious about whether the trade talk would bother his star wideout. Again, we already started communicating before all that communication kind of got out there and was talked about to a great deal. He's professional, and I'damn glad he's now. Shortly after that, speaking at the annual owners meetings, Giants co-owner John Mara told the media that neither Beckham Jr. or any of the team's other players were "untouchable" in regards to potential trades this off-season.

Referring to a "commitment he started to make", Lewis said that he and Beckham "started to make those phone calls, we started to have conversation".

"That's the business, " Shurmur said. I never got too concerned with it.

Odell Beckham was present for roll call to begin the offseason program with the New York Giants on Monday.
