Giants Odell Beckham'finalizing massive five-year contract extension

After months and months of negotiations, the New York Giants have finally agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension with Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

The deal is worth $95 million with $65 million guaranteed and will make Beckham the highest-paid receiver in National Football League history, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. His guaranteed money sits behind only Matt Ryan ($94.5 million) and Kirk Cousins ($84 million), per Over The Cap. Garafolo posted that the pact has a base of $90 million, with $41 million fully guaranteed at signing and an additional $24 million in injury guarantees.

Beckham's new deal will pay him an average of $18 million per year according to ESPN's Dan Graziano.

Dutch police: Suspect in boy's slaying detained in Spain
Dutch police confirmed: "Jos B, 55, a suspect in the death of Nicky Verstappen was arrested in Spain on Sunday afternoon". After the longest-running murder hunt in Dutch history, Jos Brech was arrested at a campsite near Barcelona yesterday.

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. The $19 million per year average in new money sits below only Von Miller ($19.08 million) among non-quarterbacks. Brandin Cooks (Rams) all also reportedly earn more than $16 million annually.

Since bursting onto the scene as a rookie, OBJ has displayed the game-changing talent to tilt the field whenever he plays.

Though he had long expressed a desire to get a new deal, Beckham didn't make major waves: he was around in the offseason, even though his participation was limited as he recovered from a fractured left ankle that led to him missing the final 12 games in 2017.
