Sooner or later, Beckham may take a look around the league and wonder if the Giants are playing him like a fool. He’s doing everything Shurmur and the coaches and team brass have asked of him this offseason, including Tuesday when he participated in individual drills and and took part in the walk-through portions of practice in addition to attending all meetings.
At some point between the start of training camp in late July and Week 1 at home against Jacksonville, Beckham’s representatives and the Giants owe it to themselves to seriously engage in talks about a new deal.
Truth is, Beckham and the Giants have every reason to make this work before we ever get to that. It’s why Beckham is doing everything asked of him, giving himself the chance to earn that pay day he has earned.
And that’s a fact everyone should be able to agree on.
Dykstra’s attorney, Matthew Blit, has said Dykstra has the 911 call records to prove that he was actually a terrified victim of kidnapping, as his driver refused to let him out of the car and drove like a maniac.
Trump initially picked the fight with the NFL last September in Huntsville, Ala., by suggesting that NFL owners fire athletes who don’t stand for the national anthem. The following month, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of an Indianapolis Colts game when members of the visiting San Francisco 49ers kneeled during the anthem.
He also criticized the NFL’s policy of allowing players to stay in the locker room before a game but requiring them to stand for the anthem if they appear on the field, calling it as disrespectful to our country as kneeling.
Smith later posted a second tweet that read: There are a lot of people on the team that have plenty of different views. The men and women that wanted to go should’ve been able to go. It’s a cowardly act to cancel the celebration because the majority of the people don’t want to see you. To make it about the anthem is foolish.
Smith also recently became one of the first NFL players to respond on social media about the league’s new national anthem policy. The receiver suggested the league didn’t address the intent of Colin Kaepernick’s protest.
