Less than a week into the new year, Odell Beckham is making big plans for Big Blue.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, the Giants receiver posted a photo of himself on the beach, captioning the shot with a bold prediction.
“This time next year we WILL be in the playoffs…” Beckham wrote.
The only way for Odell Beckham Jr. to back up his big talk
The news that trickled out of Giants camp Friday afternoon…
Beckham’s first and last postseason appearance came in January 2017, one week after an ill-fated boat trip helped capsize the Giants’ playoff run, as they fell to Green Bay in the NFC wild-card round. Beckham later vented his frustrations by punching a hole in the wall.
After Beckham and the Giants finished 10-6 during Ben McAdoo’s first year as head coach, things took a turn for the worse in 2017, with the team falling to a dismal 3-13 on the season. Following McAdoo’s firing, the Giants hired Pat Shurmur, who wrapped his rookie season last week at 5-11.
As for Beckham, who finished the season on the sidelines for the second year in a row due to injury, he has $95 million more reasons to make a run at the playoffs in 2019.
