Odell Beckham Jr.’s long road back from a fractured ankle continues. The New York Giants receiver posted video of himself dunking on social media over the weekend. New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham continues his recovery from a fractured ankle suffered last October.

The New York Football Giants, a bedrock NFL franchise, have negotiated thousands of player contracts over the decades. Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who received a slotted rookie deal in 2014, has negotiated as a practical matter none. It’s his only real leverage and, given his other options to force the Giants to pay Beckham what he deserves, it’s his only real choice.

Reporter Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com has had one particular tweet proverbially hanging around his neck for three years, but this week got the chance to take it off. If you’re a Penn State football fan you likely know this story, but for those of you that don’t: in 2015, Dunleavy was the outlet’s Rutgers football beat writer, and on September 19, he was at Beaver Stadium for Rutgers’ game against the Nittany Lions. New York Giants rookie Saquon Barkley and a beat writer for the team buried the hatchet this week.

Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Saturday told reporters he'll be in attendance when the New York Giants open training camp on July 25. Yes you will," Beckham told reporters who asked if they'll see him at the Giants camp as he left a camp he's hosting for some 550 first- through eighth-graders in Metuchen, N.J., on Saturday. Seeking a contract extension as he enters the fifth-year option of his rookie deal, Beckham showed for the start of organized team activities -- which are voluntary -- in May but had been absent for two weeks before showing up for mandatory minicamp last week.

It was not a good day at New York Giants minicamp. While he’s reportedly OK, the team nearly lost big-money left tackle Nate Solder to a knee injury and just as alarming, defensive tackle Damon Harrison swung a helmet at guard Will Hernandez’s head, and there were punches thrown. According to reporter Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, one of many media members who saw what happened, Solder’s knee got rolled up on during a run play.

New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur expects all his players to be at training camp. Shurmur also said Thursday after the conclusion of minicamp that there was "no reason to believe" that Beckham won't be able to do everything come training camp. Beckham did run and cut at full speed while running routes with quarterback Eli Manning for the first time this week.

New York Giants left tackle Nate Solder tweaked his right knee Thursday after being rolled up on during a minicamp scuffle. The Giants' marquee offseason signing wasn't a main participant in the scuffle that saw defensive tackle Damon Harrison swing the helmet of rookie guard Will Hernandez at Hernandez's head.

Pat Shurmur's first minicamp with the New York Giants nearly had an ugly ending when high-priced left tackle Nate Solder tweaked a knee after being bumped during a helmet-swinging scuffle between defensive tackle Damon Harrison and rookie guard Will Hernandez. Solder, who signed a four-year, $62 million contract in March, walked away from the fight on the third and final day of the minicamp on Thursday and sat on the grass after Harrison and Hernandez were separated.
