Odell Beckham Jr. is set to become the highest-paid receiver in the NFL with a monster five-year deal worth up to $US95 million that includes $US65 million guaranteed.
Beckham’s deal means he’ll surpass Antonio Brown, whose deal averages out to $US17 million per year. More importantly, the contract sets a new high-mark for guaranteed money for a receiver, topping the $US55 million Mike Evans nailed down earlier in the offseason.
Judging by this clip from Sterling Shephard’s Instagram account, Beckham, and his Giants’ teammates, couldn’t be happier about the deal.

Now that terms have been agreed to, Beckham will be set to take the field when the Giants open their season against the Jacksonville Jaguars on September 9.
