The star wide receiver is staying put in New York for the time being.
It was a rough season for the New York Giants. They finished dead last in the NFC East with a record of 5-11 and missed the playoffs. Not to mention Odell Beckham Jr. went down with an injury that kept him out of the last four games of the season. In order to dispell any rumors that Odell might be moving on from the team, general manager Dave Gettleman held a press conference on Wednesday to let everyone know that Beckham Jr. isn't going anywhere.
According to Sporting News, Gettleman had this to say in regards to Beckham Jr.'s status with the team: “We didn’t sign him to trade him if that’s what you’re asking.” When pressed further about the subject, the Giants GM doubled down saying “You heard what I said."

Beckham Jr. had a pretty solid season despite his injury. He recorded six touchdowns and 1,053 receiving yards. The wide receiver even threw for two touchdowns.
Gettleman also spoke on the status of quarterback Eli Manning, which isn't as secure as that of Odell's.
“It was a very honest and up-front conversation,” Gettleman said. “We’re trying to build sustained success. That takes brutal honesty and tough decisions.”
The Giants off-season is bound to be an interesting one.
