Odell Beckham Jr. is reportedly eyeing a new contract that will pay him north of $20 million annually on average. Appearing on NFL Network's Up to the Minute on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo disclosed Beckham wants to become the highest-paid receiver in the league. "I know that Odell Beckham has told some people that he wants some really significant numbers," he said. "... It's not gonna be top quarterback money, because top quarterback money is going through the roof. "... He's in the 20s. From what he has told people close to him, he wants to be in the low 20s." Garafolo added he "[doesn't] see any way" the New York Giants could appease that demand. The 25-year-old will earn $8.4 million in the final year of his rookie deal next season. If Beckham gets his wish from the Giants, or some other team, he will instantly reset the wide receiver market. Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown is currently the highest-paid receiver on an average annual basis at $17 million, with Houston Texans pass-catcher DeAndre Hopkins ($16.2 million) right behind him among players not signed to the franchise tag.
