The wait, it seems, is almost over.

This is somewhat interesting in that the Giants had made it known that they want to see OBJ back at full health before giving him a record-breaking long-term deal.

The 25-year-old has been looking for a new deal with the Giants all offseason.

Sources shared this information with ESPN's Jordan Raanan, stating "there is reasonable optimism from both sides that a deal may get done by the start of the season".

Given the relatively quick progress of the talks, it seems as if the Giants have stepped up their offer significantly to the point where Beckham is sure to be one of, if not the highest paid wide receiver in the entire league. According to Ranaan, the benchmarks for Beckham in negotiations have been Antonio Brown's $17 million per year and Mike Evans' $55 million in total guarantees. Remember, Beckham missed a majority of last season with an ankle injury.

"I definitely think it's going to work itself out, "Beckham said last week, per ESPN". "When is it going to happen?"

The New York Giants had a woefully underwhelming season in 2017, finishing with a 3-13 record and failing to live up to the expectations set following the team's 10-6 finish in 2016.

That is the business side that is new to me in a sense. He's one of just two receivers ever to average at least 90 receiving yards per game over the course of his first four years in the league, with the other being Hall of Famer Lance Alworth. I believe it will work itself out. He averaged close to 100 catches for over 1,300 and almost 12 touchdowns during that three-year stretch, which is outstanding production. It's a matter of time.

The Giants will open the year on September 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Metlife Stadium.
