Would the New York Giants actually trade superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham? ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter thinks so.

There's been a lot floated out there about Beckham's availability on the trade market. The Giants have waffled a bit about Beckham's availability in recent weeks.

He is being connected to specific teams as well. There seems to be at least some mutual interest between Beckham and the Los Angeles Rams.

Beckham has reportedly told Rams players that he wants a trade. In response to those reports, Rams head coach Sean McVay said that there is "no trade we wouldn't explore."

Schefter has previously reported that while Beckham may be available, the asking price is high. The Giants reportedly want at least two first-round pick for him.

With that said, it seems like if Beckham is to be moved this year, it will happen before the upcoming NFL Draft. The Draft, being held in Arlington this year, will begin on Thursday, April 26.

Adam Schefter thinks the Odell Beckham trade talks are legit.

The insider appeared on the Ross Tucker Football Podcast earlier this week. During the show, he said he thinks the talks are "very real, absolutely real." Via 247Sports:

"Just think about everything that transpired during the week of the owner's meetings," said Schefter. "You had the owner of the Giants [saying] he's not pleased with Odell Beckham Jr., that nobody on the roster is untouchable. You had the GM, Dave Gettleman, come over and say, basically, when they asked him if he could assure of them if Odell Beckham Jr. was gonna be on the roster next year - He never was willing to do that. You had the head coach [Pat Shurmur] say that Odell's on the team for right now. Maybe he said that the quote was taken out of context, that's fine, he still said it."

Odell Beckham may bring some off-field concerns, but it is impossible to deny what a talent he is on the field. The Giants star had 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns through his first three seasons, before succumbing to injuries and missing most of the 2017 season. When healthy, the number of comparable skill position players in the league can easily be counted on a single hand.
