Giants owner: No ‘sense of urgency’ for Beckham deal

A month and a half ago, New York Giants co-owner John Mara spent his time with the media strategically refusing to deny his team could consider trading star Odell Beckham Jr. Now Mara is back to talking about keeping OBJ in a Big Blue jersey for a long time.

Added Mara: It’s not the first contract negotiation we’ve ever had, Mara said. It’ll get done when it’s supposed to get done.

From Beckham’s Kevin Labanc Youth jersey perspective, he’d like to become the highest-paid non-QB before he sets foot on the field again.

If talks don’t progress, however, it’s possible Beckham could decide to skip OTAs or even training camp. If that happens, get ready for a summer storm of angst in New York.

The trade will reunite Spence with Kris Kocurek, the longtime Lions defensive line coach who is working in the same role in Miami.

I want to thank the Detroit Lions for the opportunity they gave me this past season to be a Lion, Spence tweeted. Also want to thank my coaches,teammates and the fans it was a great experience. We all know NFL is a business. With that being said happy to be a Miami Dolphin…!!! Gods plan!!!

In his one season with the Lions, Spence appeared in all 16 games, starting 11. He recorded 39 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. Among defensive linemen, only A’Shawn Robinson and Anthony Zettel played more snaps than Spence last season.

The Lions will still be on the hook for a $1.5 million cap hit, the remaining portion of Spence’s $2.25 million signing bonus. Still, the pay cut and trade clears more than $2 million in cap space this year and closer to $3.5 in 2019.
