Before the season started, the three-time Pro Bowler said he is looking to become the NFL's highest-paid player with his next contract. That's just the type of player he is.
Beckham said this summer that he wanted to be the league's highest-paid player.
Even if he does return better than ever, though, it will still be a big challenge for him to land the richest contract in a league which places a lot more importance on quarterbacks than wide receivers. It doesn't matter. The type of impact that he has on the globe, the type of viewers that he brings - just him as a player. "He's a once in a lifetime player".
"There's no reason that he won't come back and be the same type of player", Miller said. "He's carted off, and I'm like 'The cart is never good.' Whenever you see that guy in that trolley coming out, it's never good". "When you get a guy like that, that's the guy that you invest in, that you want to keep around for his whole career". NY picked up Beckham's fifth-year option for 2018, when Beckham is scheduled to make $8.4 million, much more than the $1.8 million he's due this season.
Odell Beckham Jr. going down with a season-ending ankle fracture last week prety much effectively ended the New York Giants hopes of trying to salvage this season, where they are now 0-5 and headed for a top pick in the NFL Draft. But the injury could delay the inevitable extension.
Miller, whose six-year, $114 million contract ranks among the biggest in the National Football League, has bonded with Beckham over their shared lofty goals.
"The type of goals that he has, the type of mindset that he has, it's right along with the type of stuff that I have going on", Miller said. Find our Giants coverage on Facebook.
