There’s been plenty of smoke regarding the availability of Odell Beckham Jr. on the trade market this offseason that the possibility a deal coming together for the star New York Giants wide receiver can’t be completely ruled out.
Beckham has stated a desire to be the highest-paid player in the league. Even if he’s just comfortable with being the highest-paid receiver, that would require a commitment from the Giants of at least $17 million a year, on average, to surpass Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Los Angeles Rams have reportedly expressed interest in trading for Beckham and the Giants have reportedly asked for two first-round picks in return for any trade involving him as well. Of course, any team acquiring Beckham would have to solve the contract problem at some point too.
In his senior season at the University of South Florida, Cliett made six sacks and 7.5 tackles for loss.
The Vikings also made official the signing of returner Marcus Sherels, who returns to the team for an eighth season.
Yan Gomes (R), 4 percent, Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers (LHP Francisco Liriano): Gomes isn’t the greatest stick, but the fact of the matter is, you want as many righties as you can muster when Liriano is on the hill. The Indians lineup is deep, so Gomes should have some chances against a southpaw with 31-of-37 his longballs allowed since 2016 going to righties.
Albert Pujols (R), 40 percent, Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers (RHP Doug Fister): Pujols doesn’t qualify at first, –yet — but he soon will. Fister is equally generous to lefties and righties and, since Shohei Ohtani pitched on Sunday, Pujols will be in the lineup.
“Someday, Napoleon is going to walk hand-and-hand with his four daughters into that stadium, and I’m going to walk in with my two daughters,” Bernhard said. “There will be six daughters and two daddies, and we’ll say, ‘Your daddies played a little role in all of this.'”
McCallum wants to see local talent on the field before the first game. He’d also like to catch a punt with one hand, like he used to do in past fan appreciation days for the Raiders.
“Then, to top it off, Bruno Mars,” McCallum said. “That’s how you open a stadium.”
