Of course, the Giants do not have to make this kind of commitment right now, as Beckham Jr.is scheduled to make nearly $8.5 million in 2018. He won't have to.

Odell Beckham Jr has agreed a new five-year contract extension with the New York Giants which makes him the NFL's highest-paid wide receiver.

Beckham Jr. will receive $65 million guaranteed, the highest-ever for a wide receiver and average over $20 million per season in each of the first three years.

Theresa May dancing in the dark on Brexit
The foreign minister says she's given her phone number to her U.S. counterpart Mike Pompeo to avoid a repeat of this. Mrs May's visit to Nairobi will mark the first by a British prime minister to Kenya since Margaret Thatcher in 1988.

A lot has been written about Beckham's contract situation since the end of last season. His $95m deal also tops the $82.5m (£64m) deal receiver Mike Evans has with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

OBJ isn't making quarterback money, but came pretty darn close. After the news broke of OBJ's massive extension worth $95 million, the G-Men made a decision to throw an absolute party in the locker room, which was led by none other than the talented wide receiver.

Beckham, 25, missed most of previous year after suffering a fractured ankle just four games into the season, as the Giants struggled as a team going 3-13.

The US/China trade tensions fuelled concerns that global economic growth could slow, weakening worldwide energy demand. In June, China was the biggest foreign buyer of American crude, importing a record 15 million barrels that month.

Video of Odell and his teammates appearing to react to the news of the new contract is going viral. A tantalizing combination of speed, route running acumen, jump-ball ability, and sticky hands, Beckham can make even the best defensive back's head spin.

Beckham Jr. has been one of the best wide receivers in the National Football League since joining the Giants.

Beckham, who in his first four seasons caught 313 passes for 4,424 yards and 38 touchdowns, felt getting a new deal would be just a matter of time.
