But the New York Giants jersey top wide receiver won’t be satisfied with surpassing Antonio Brown jersey’s four-year, $68 million deal — he wants to be the NFL’s highest-paid player.

Does he deserve to be? And what about the other marquee players hoping to sign lucrative long-term contracts?

wholesale jerseys authentic Although Beckham will make just $1.8 million this season from the Giants, the 24-year-old will earn more than $10 million this year in endorsements. He is currently scheduled to make $8.459 million next year in the final year of his rookie contract.

Wholesale Trey Hopkins jersey Back in June, a source told ESPN’s Jordan Raanan that when Beckham signs a new long-term deal, it will dwarf what Brown got this past offseason (think in excess of $100 million and more than cheap jersey $20 million per season).

The three-time Pro Bowl receiver has had at least 90 catches, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of his first three seasons.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — It’s only one day into New York Giants jersey training camp and already Odell Beckham jersey Jr jersey.’s contract has become the topic of discussion. That didn’t take long.

The release of his UNINTERRUPTED video that expressed his desire to be the NFL’s top-paid player was quite coincidental. Point taken as negotiations have disappointingly yet to begin for the star wide receiver.

Odell Beckham jersey Jr jersey. will surely be celebrating when he signs his next NFL contract, which could be for a nine-figure total. Brad Penner/USA TODAY SportsBut not much has changed since the last time we discussed what a new deal for Beckham would cost the Giants. In summation … a ton, according to four league sources.

wholesale jerseys From my June 8 column:

Wholesale Valerian Ume-Ezeoke jersey The Giants aren’t ready to sit down and discuss numbers just yet, partly because they still have Beckham under contract for two more seasons, with the potential for an additional two years on top of that with the franchise tag. Why make such a massive financial commitment now when they have him under their control for another two to four years?

For one, the price is likely only to head north as he inches closer to free agency. Every year means millions more destined for the Beckham vault, already flush with fresh Nike money.

[Update: That Nike deal pays him $5.8 million per year and he’s set to make more than $10 million this year in endorsements.]

Beckham is at the point in his career where he is ready to bank. He’s entering his fourth professional season. This is the first offseason he’s eligible under the collective bargaining agreement to be extended. After three Pro Bowl seasons in three years, all indications are that he would like negotiations to have begun yesterday.

When they do, it will be for a deal that league sources involved in negotiations, although not specifically with Beckham, insist will be “huge” and “massive.” They agree it should be record-setting for a wide receiver.

One source is confident that when the deal is made, it will dwarf what Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown jersey received earlier this offseason. Think in excess of $100 million and more than $20 million per season, and possibly even bigger than the $113 million total package negotiated by former Detroit Lions jersey wide receiver Calvin Johnson jersey jersey in 2012.

Brown netted an extension worth four years and $68 million, with $19 million guaranteed earlier this offseason. All four sources polled believe that Beckham’s new deal should top the $17 million average per year (APY) Brown received in his third contract with the Steelers.

Beckham, 24, is still playing on his rookie deal. He will make $1.8 million in 2017, a number significantly below his market value or production level. He will make somewhere in the $8 million range if he plays under his fifth-year option next season.

One cheap jersey source predicted Beckham’s deal will approach a net value of $17.5 million per season, with somewhere in the range of $55 million guaranteed.

This is because of what Beckham brings as a player. None of the sources seem to think Beckham’s dollar value will be inflated much, if at all, by his popularity and/or marketability. Among NFL players, he was the only non-quarterback on ESPN’s fame list.

But the sources believe that’s negligible when it comes to contract negotiations, in part because of the salary cap. What’s more likely a significant factor is when he signs.

Beckham is part of a wide receiving quartet that includes his best friend, Jarvis Landry jersey jersey, of the Miami Dolphins jersey, Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans jersey and Houston’s DeAndre Hopkins jersey jersey. All appear destined for impending new deals with their respective teams. None may be at Beckham’s level on the field, but the more the market sets — and likely with big numbers — the more the last one to sign will pocket, one source predicted.

Of the four top receivers signed in the 2015 offseason (Dez Bryant jersey jersey, Demaryius Thomas jersey jersey, A.J. Green jersey jersey and Julio Jones jersey jersey), Green was the last to sign. He received the largest APY at $15 million.

NFL’s Top Wide Receiver ContractsPlayerSignedTermsGuaranteedAverage Per YearAntonio Brown jersey20174 years, $68M$19M$17MA.J. Green jersey jersey20154 years, $60M$32.75M$15MJulio Jones jersey jersey20155 years, $71.25M$47M$14.25MDez Bryant jersey jersey20155 years, $70M$45M$14MDemaryius Thomas jersey jersey20155 years, $70M$43M$14MThese are all big numbers. Beckham is going to get paid. That is the bottom line, especially with the salary cap rising a significant amount every year.

Whenever it happens, Beckham will be shooting for the stars when negotiations begin for a new deal. And it will happen. Owner John Mara has already said he wants Beckham to be a Giant for life.

But what will be a reasonable price? Beckham wants to be the highest-paid receiver and player. A lofty but unrealistic goal. He doesn’t play quarterback. Nine of the top 10-paid players this season are quarterbacks. Beckham is a wide receiver. He’s destined for top wide receiver money. Nothing wrong with that, just like there is nothing wrong with him asking for the moon.

Eventually he’ll have to settle for that next-level wide receiver money. It’s just a matter of how much that is when he gets a new deal.

Cheap Kyle Long jersey

LATROBE, Pa. — Center Maurkice Pouncey jersey tried to make light of Le’Veon Bell jersey’s situation Thursday by offering him a year of his contract, then saying Bell should report “so you guys don’t have to ask the same questions every day.”

black friday kyle long jersey

But Bell’s absence as the Pittsburgh Steelers jersey reported for training camp Thursday was a bit unsettling, as if the team has to move on from Bell while preparing to play with him, someday.

kyle long black friday jersey

Here’s what we know about Bell’s situation, and what’s next.

cheap jerseys Some teammates, though they understand the business side, aren’t thrilled that Bell is missing time and believe he should be here in good faith. Others are OK with it and expected the absence because they realize cheap jersey Bell doesn’t want to risk injury.Antonio Brown jersey is especially not thrilled, believing this is a special team and “we need all of our guys here,” he told reporters after pulling up in a 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom.The Steelers think Bell can have an MVP-type season — guard Ramon Foster jersey mentioned that Thursday — but are prepared to go without him temporarily if necessary. This is a telling quote from guard David DeCastro jersey, who is one of Bell’s biggest supporters: “The biggest thing with football, no matter who you are, this thing moves on without you.”It appears this has been Bell’s plan all along, with the player telling ESPN last week that he needs only a few practices and maybe one preseason game to be ready. This hints at a mid-to-late-August return, in time for the third preseason game Aug. 26 against the Indianapolis Colts jersey. The third game is when the first-team offense plays much of the first half. Chiefs safety Eric Berry jersey jersey followed the late-August plan after waiting to sign his franchise tender, then having a big year. He’s now on a six-year, $78 million extension.Some with the Steelers believe Bell made a mistake by not taking the team’s long-term offer since a multitude of factors, including injury or free agency, could take Bell out of Pittsburgh for his prime years.Bell believes he’s the kind of elite running back/receiver combo that exceeds the traditional running back market, which is the crux of all this. And he’s probably right, though future money isn’t guaranteed to reflect that thought.Coach Mike Tomlin is a big Bell supporter and has been in communication with the player. He believes Bell stays in shape all year so that’s not the issue. The issues are rust and the lack of team-building, which he believes are important factors, as do some of the players.Bell isn’t afraid of potentially leaving long-term money on the table if he gets hurt because, as he told ESPN last week, he’s never had money all his life until now, and he’s never seen anything close to $12.1 million. He’s cool with waiting.Despite all these things, here’s the good news for the Steelers: Bell doesn’t plan to miss a down in 2017 and will probably be the same dominant player as last year barring injury.Then, perhaps next year’s camp will strike a far different tone.

Cheap Troy Hill jersey

That sound you heard this week was the opening of NFL training camps. We’re inside six weeks now until the start of the regular season, and the grunting and sweating that’s happening on all those far-flung practice fields will soon yield to real results.

black friday troy hill jersey

The play-by-play you get of camp practices can be fun, and it can soothe your football-starved soul. But it doesn’t ultimately make much of a difference as to what happens once the real games start. Far more likely to matter is what’s come before — the moves made this offseason long before camps opened.

troy hill black friday jersey

With that in mind, and with camps open across the league, here’s a look at the offseason moves likely to have a major impact on the 2017 NFL season, in no particular order:

wholesale jerseys from china The Oakland Raiders jersey hit fast forwardThe biggest Raiders news of the offseason was the cheap jersey approval they got to move to Las Vegas after two or three more years in Oakland. But that news seems to only have intensified the team’s desire to win very, very soon — as in, before it leaves the Bay Area. Luring running back Marshawn Lynch jersey out of retirement, adding Jared Cook jersey jersey to an already potent pass-catching corps, signing quarterback Derek Carr jersey for the long term, extending coach Jack Del Rio … all of these moves signify a franchise flush with confidence and the highest of hopes for the very immediate future. Regardless of location.

Cheap Troy Hill jersey The New York Giants jersey sign Brandon Marshall jersey jerseyThe Giants got a major break here, getting the veteran wideout on the cheap in part because he didn’t want to leave the New York market after getting cut by the Jets. Marshall averages 104 catches for 1,341 yards and nine touchdowns in his first year after changing teams, and this is the fourth time he has changed teams. He’s 33, and at some point he and those trends will slow down. But in the meantime, Marshall should be a great help to superstar wideout Odell Beckham jersey Jr jersey. and to quarterback Eli Manning jersey jersey, who too often last season didn’t have enough reliable targets.

Brandin Cooks jersey jersey will give Tom Brady jersey jersey a crucial deep threat, and the Patriots’ offense could be special. Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesBill Belichick gets trade-happyWe’ve long known the New England Patriots jersey’ coach loves to trade draft picks, but usually he’s dealing them for other draft picks. This offseason, the Patriots dealt for wide receiver Brandin Cooks jersey jersey, pass-rusher Kony Ealy jersey jersey jersey and tight end Dwayne Allen jersey jersey. They also gave up a pick to sign restricted free-agent running back Mike Gillislee jersey jersey away from Buffalo — the team from whom they signed top free-agent cornerback Stephon Gilmore jersey jersey jersey. It was a bold and creative offseason by a coach who has won five Super Bowls and seems determined to win as many as possible before his and Tom Brady jersey jersey’s window closes.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey added premier deep-threat wideout DeSean Jackson jersey in free agency, a move that should open up the field in unprecedented ways for quarterback Winston and star wideout Mike Evans jersey. They also drafted Alabama tight end O.J. Howard in the first round, a move that should open up things for Cameron Brate jersey as a pass-catcher and help the run game as Howard develops at the NFL level. The Bucs were one of 2016’s surprise stories, and they look to keep it going around their young quarterback.

Richard Sherman jersey stays putWhether he asked for a trade, whether the Seattle Seahawks jersey just got tired of the antics … none of that is really relevant, because coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider made it publicly clear they were listening to offers for their heart-and-soul cornerback. They ended up keeping him, which is the right move. Contract and cap issues will make it tough for Seattle to keep its secondary together after this season, but right now the NFC is still the Seahawks’ for the taking if the offense can hold up its end. Keeping the defense together for at least one more run was the way to go.

The Los Angeles Rams jersey hire young and oldThe new coach is energetic, talented offensive mind Sean McVay, age 31. The new defensive coordinator is the venerable Wade Phillips, age 70, last seen turning the Denver Broncos jersey’ defense into a championship-caliber monster. The combination should mean new energy and excitement for a Rams team that has hit some doldrums. Whether it means success depends on how much McVay has with young quarterback Jared Goff jersey.

Open season on general managersThe teams that changed GMs at odd times of the year included the Indianapolis Colts jersey, Buffalo Bills jersey, Kansas City Chiefs jersey and Carolina Panthers jersey. The latter two were stunning summer surprises. The changes in Buffalo and Kansas City signify increased power for the head coaches. The one in Carolina could signal a return to some bad, old-style spending habits. The one in Indy is, the Colts hope, the best chance to put a contender around Andrew Luck jersey jersey as he develops. Long term, though, the impact is this: If you’re an NFL GM, there’s no time of year when you can believe your job is safe.

First-round pick Jamal Adams jersey is an early front-runner for Defensive Rookie of the Year. Ed Mulholland/USA TODAY SportsThe New York Jets jersey draft safety Jamal Adams jerseyLook, it feels as if everything we say and write about the Jets is doom and gloom, and for the most part there’s good reason for that. I don’t expect them to be a good team in 2017. But Adams, the No. 6 overall pick, could be the most NFL-ready player in this year’s rookie class, and the expectation is that he’ll emerge as a leader right away and solidify things on that defense as the team adds pieces in the years to come. A great long-view pick for a team that has to be thinking that way.

The Cleveland Browns jersey build the lineThis is another team that appears to be years away from contending. But adding Kevin Zeitler jersey jersey and JC Tretter jersey jersey in free agency and re-signing Joel Bitonio jersey jersey long term signifies a team that knows what a rebuild is all about. Getting better up front will only help whoever the quarterback turns out to be, and it will help the Browns be a better running team and a tougher team to play in 2017.

Sam Bradford jersey gets some help … maybeAre Riley Reiff jersey jersey jersey and Mike Remmers jersey jersey jersey the answers at tackle for a Minnesota Vikings jersey team whose 2016 season fell apart due to poor play at those positions? Their free-agent price tags say they are. Their histories say “maybe, maybe not.” Bradford is in the final year of his contract, and the health of former Minnesota first-rounder Teddy Bridgewater jersey jersey is keeping the organization from committing to Bradford just yet. Reiff and Remmers will have a lot to say about how successful Bradford will be in 2017 and how likely he is to stay beyond.

The Houston Texans jersey overhaul quarterback — againA year after dumping Brian Hoyer jersey jersey jersey and overpaying for Brock Osweiler jersey, Houston managed to offload Osweiler’s contract to cap-rich Cleveland and then moved up in the draft to take Clemson’s Deshaun Watson jersey. Whether Watson starts right away remains to be seen (the bet here is that he does). But where the Texans were once convinced Osweiler was the long-term answer, they’re now all-in on the electric youngster who took out Alabama in the national championship game.

The Green Bay Packers jersey sign a free-agent tight end — againLast year it was Jared Cook jersey jersey, who played well enough to get a new deal from the Raiders. This year it’s Martellus Bennett jersey jersey jersey, fresh off a Super Bowl title with the Patriots. A better all-around player than even the dynamic Cook, Bennett will be a fun middle-of-the-field weapon for Aaron Rodgers jersey jersey and an underrated helper to Ty Montgomery jersey jersey and the run game as a blocker.

John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan each got six-year contracts in San Francisco, and the 49ers are in for a rebuild. AP Photo/Marcio Jose SanchezThe San Francisco 49ers jersey change coaches — againKyle Shanahan will be the fourth different 49ers coach in four years, but he and new GM John Lynch got six-year deals, which means it’s very unlikely the Niners will change coaches again next year. Shanahan and Lynch are both first-timers in their jobs, so some growing pains should be expected. And they still have to figure out the long-term answer at quarterback. But the long-term commitment indicates a franchise that knows it needs some stability at the top, at long last.

The Carolina Panthers jersey add help for Cam Newton jersey jerseyBattered from the outset, the 2015 NFL MVP endured a nightmare of a 2016 season and is coming off offseason shoulder surgery. The Panthers signed former first-round pick Matt Kalil jersey jersey jersey to play left tackle (two spots over from his brother, Ryan Kalil jersey jersey) and drafted Christian McCaffrey jersey and Curtis Samuel jersey to give Newton some short-range, quick-pass targets. This is all designed to help protect Newton better and prolong his career. How he adjusts to the new style will be one of the big stories of 2017.

Martavis Bryant jersey is reinstatedThe Pittsburgh Steelers jersey’ wide receiver was suspended for four games in 2015 and every game in 2016 for violating the league’s drug policy, but assuming no slip-ups between now and September — he’s still not allowed to practice or play in games — he’ll be back on the field and should add a viable deep threat to Pittsburgh’s already-star-studded passing attack. If they can get running back Le’Veon Bell jersey in camp and keep him, Ben Roethlisberger jersey and Antonio Brown jersey all healthy at the same time, this could be the best offense in the league.

Kirk Cousins jersey tells Washington ‘No, thanks’Washington never came close to offering Cousins the kind of contract it would have taken to keep him from wanting to test next March’s free-agent market, so he’ll play out 2017 on a $24 million franchise tag and likely leave when it’s over. The impact on Washington’s 2017 season remains to be seen, and it’s possible Cousins’ performance suffers from the loss of Pierre Garcon jersey and DeSean Jackson jersey. But the major impact of this move could be a franchise quarterback on the open market in March — and those ripples would be felt league wide for years to come.

Dontari Poe jersey jersey signed a one-year deal in Atlanta, and the Falcons are hoping he helps improve their run defense and pass rush. Dale Zanine-USA TODAY SportsThe Atlanta Falcons jersey beef up their defensive frontYes, of course the offensive playcalling in the Super Bowl deserves to be questioned. But another reason the Falcons blew a 25-point lead to the Patriots is that their defense had nothing left by the fourth quarter.

Andrew Luck jersey jersey has shoulder surgeryThe Indianapolis Colts jersey’ franchise quarterback enters camp a question mark following January surgery on his throwing shoulder.

Jeffrey — when he’s been able to stay healthy — has shown the ability to be one of those. The Bears had enough, and he ended up in Philly on a one-year, prove-it deal. If he can stay on the field and produce the way he did in Chicago, Jeffery will help the Eagles evaluate Wentz and how much further he still needs to go.

Cheap Lorenzo Alexander jersey

PITTSBURGH — Running back Le’Veon Bell jersey did not report to Pittsburgh Steelers jersey training camp with the rest of the team Thursday, leaving his status for the start of the 2017 season uncertain.

black friday lorenzo alexander jersey

Bell has yet to sign his $12.12 million franchise tender and, as a result, is not subject to fines for his no-show.

lorenzo alexander black friday jersey

Steelers receiver Antonio Brown jersey reiterated to reporters what he said on social media in a direct cheap jersey message to Bell: The first part of getting better is showing up.

wholesale jerseys from china “When trying to do something special, we would like all our guys here,” Brown said Thursday.

Cheap Lorenzo Alexander jersey Other players took a softer approach, acknowledging they would like Bell in camp but understand the business side.

“The biggest thing with football, no matter who you are, this thing moves on without you,” guard David DeCastro jersey said. “It’s kind of an unfortunate truth, but it is the way it is. If he’s not here, we’ve got to go.”

Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva jersey, who was also without a contract, reported to camp after the Steelers signed him to a four-year deal Thursday afternoon.

Bell has a precedent to follow: Chiefs safety Eric Berry jersey jersey reported later in August to sign his tender last summer, then had a big year and signed a six-year, $78 million extension this offseason.

Bell, 25, was a second-round pick in 2013. He has been elected to two Pro Bowls and has rushed for 4,045 yards despite missing 17 regular-season games over the course of four seasons.

Center Maurkice Pouncey jersey says Bell is a unique talent who doesn’t need practice every day, but the benefit of reporting is “just to be around the team, so you guys don’t have to ask the same questions every day. He could sit on the sidelines and answer those questions.”

In other Steelers news, wide receiver Martavis Bryant jersey is not eligible to practice because he’s still under conditional reinstatement with the NFL over substance abuse violations.

Bryant has missed 20 games over the past two seasons for drug offenses. In late April, the league made clear he could be with the team on a conditional basis and had hurdles to clear.

A source says Bryant is with the team right now and is working to finalize his reinstatement in the coming days or weeks.

“Upon his conditional reinstatement in April, Martavis Bryant jersey was made aware it was only the beginning of a process toward a return to being a full contributing member of the Pittsburgh Steelers jersey,” general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement.

“We have been informed by the NFL that Martavis is still in the process of being fully reinstated. Until that time, Martavis will be permitted to take part in off-the-field team activities at training camp, but he will not be permitted to practice or play in any games.”
