New York Giants: Odell Beckham Jr. Wants to Finish His Career in New York

Odell Beckham Jr. is back with the Giants, and he has reassured all of his critics that he's a team first player, and he wants to spend his entire career in blue.

Odell Beckham Jr.'s absence from OTAs raised serious questions regarding his commitment to the New York Giants.

The biggest question was whether or not he was happy with his contract, and if it was behind his absence

When asked if OBJ was unhappy with his current contract, he responded with a vague, "I leave that in the hands of the man above honestly. When that time comes, that time comes. Right now is really not the time to discuss it. Like I said, when it comes, it comes."

Clearly, OBJ did not set out to reveal his reasons for skipping OTAs, but in reality it's not a serious matter. Amani Toomer and Hakim Nicks both skipped the voluntary practices in favor of enjoying their off-time and training independently. 

OBJ and Marshall enjoy first practice together: 

The Giants added Brandon Marshalll to the mix this offseason, bolstering a receiving crops that saw a steep drop off after Beckham Jr. 

Tuesday's practice saw OBJ and Marshall line up side-by-side for the first time. 

"It is just great to be back out here. I have talked to [Brandon Marshall] pretty much throughout the whole offseason and just to get out here and see him work – he is a guy who has been doing this for a while now," Beckham Jr. stated regarding working with Marshall. He continued, "We will be able to take from each other and we all hold each other accountable and I think it is going to be a lot of fun being able to work with a guy like that.

The Beckham and Marshall duo has the potential to be special in 2017, especially considering the star power of each player.

Marshall is only one year removed from a 1,500-yard, 14 touchdown season. With Eli Manning at the helm, the sky is the limit for the former Jet. 

While Marshall chose to join the team for OTAs, Beckham decided to workout alone. 

When asked about his decision he stated, "Really I was just taking the time to train, make sure that I get proper training and really growing and maturing yourself. You just have time to reflect on life and be able to learn new things, so it was a great process for me and I definitely enjoyed it."

Of course it's his choice to skip the voluntary workouts, and as long as he's with the team for minicamp all is well in the world of Ben McAdoo. 

Beckham Jr. to be Giant for entire career?

Giant's owner John Mara recently expressed his want for Beckham Jr. to be in a Giants uniform his entire career, and Beckham reassured everyone that he wanted the same. 

THREE ESSENTIAL PLAYERS: These three players are essential for a Giants Super Bowl run

"I think we are on the same page there. Obviously this is one of the best organizations in the league and I would love to be here for the rest of my life."

OBJ in a Giants uniform for the rest of his career is music to the ears of any and all Big Blue fans. Hopefully, he can maintain his quality for years to come.
