After an historic comeback to win Super Bowl 51, the New England Patriots may also be the winners of the offseason. Not known for flashy free-agency moves, the Patriots had an unusual offseason in which they spent big to lure some big-name talent — a scary thought for the rest of the NFL. Now, according to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, there is growing buzz that this Patriots team could go undefeated and win the Super Bowl, becoming the first team in NFL history to have a 19-0 season.

Beckham, who is one of the NFL’s most recognizable names, signed a five-year deal worth about $5 million annually – more than twice the amount Nike previously shelled out for its most expensive NFL deal, according to ESPN. By comparison, James’ lifetime deal with Nike is worth a purported $1 billion, while Harden’s deal with Adidas is worth $200 million over 13 years – and they’re just two among many NBA players who have nine-figure shoe deals.

Nike reportedly matched a counteroffer from Adidas. The website, noting Beckham's desire to become a "brand icon,'' said there is a clause that can escalate the contract to make it an eight-year deal worth $48 million.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive The New York Giants took the field for their first time as a team this spring, but they were missing at least one of their most important players. Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants' talented and enigmatic receiver, was a no-show for the first day of organized team activities (OTAs), a team source confirmed. The reason for his absence wasn't clear, but he doesn't necessarily need to give one. All 10 of the OTA sessions the Giants will hold over the next three weeks are part of the voluntary offseason program. The only mandatory event this offseason for Giants players is the team's three-day minicamp, which is scheduled for June 13-15. Still, Beckham's

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive BAYONNE, N.J. - The New York Giants' offensive line seen for most of last season will likely be the same at the start of this season. And according to left guard Justin Pugh, that's not necessarily a bad thing. No, the Giants' line did not play well last season, and no, the team didn't do much to improve the personnel this offseason. But as Pugh, a fifth-year veteran, said on Monday, continuity "is the most important thing with offensive line play." The Giants definitely have that.
