Giants wine and dine Odell Beckham Jr. to start wide receiver’s free agent visit

Odell Beckham Jr.’s Giants visit kicked off Thursday evening with a sitdown dinner with team brass on the first leg of the wide receiver’s free agent tour, sources said. OBJ is then scheduled to stop by the Giants’ facility on Friday morning and undergo a physical exam, as well. He is supposed to fly north to see the Buffalo Bills later Friday and then travel south to visit the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, as well. But Bills pass rusher Von Miller, Beckham’s good friend, was placed on injured reserve on Thursday, which means Miller is sidelined at least four weeks. So it will be interesting to see how that impacts Beckham’s desire to play for Buffalo, which may have a good team but doesn’t have the national exposure or appeal of New York or Dallas. The primary factor in Beckham’s decision is expected to be the strength of the contract offer, which is one reason why the Cowboys are the favorite to land him. Dallas owner Jerry Jones has put on a full-court recruiting press and carries more salary cap space at the moment ($6.3 million) than the Giants ($2.7 million) or any of Beckham’s other known suitors. The San Francisco 49ers ($6.0 million) still seem like a possible sleeper if OBJ leaves Dallas without a deal next week.
