John Mara expects Odell Beckham to be part of Giants’ future

The Giants will have plenty of pieces to fit together this offseason, and that goes beyond just finding a new head coach and general manager.

The future of Odell Beckham Jr. will also be a central focus for the Giants, and co-owner John Mara would certainly like for his star receiver to be part of his franchise’s forthcoming plans.

“I certainly expect him to be a part of this team in the future, but that will be a discussion with the incoming general manager and incoming head coach,” Mara said on Monday. “We’ll make whatever decision is appropriate going forward.”

Beckham, who had season-ending surgery for a fractured ankle he suffered in Week 5, is under contract for next season after the Giants picked up his option for $ 8.45 million earlier this year.

However, the Giants could cut him before June 1 and not eat any dead money, according to overthecap.com.

The talented but diva wide receiver has expressed interest a new deal and even said he should be the highest-paid player in the league before his season-ending injury.

Beckham has been mostly quiet since his injury, but with a new general manager, head coach and possibly quarterback on the horizon, his status with the Giants is certainly not a sure thing.
