New York Giants
Can Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall coexist?
An already prolific New York Giants wide receiver corps got only more prolific with the offseason free-agent pickup of former New York Jets wideout, Brandon Marshall.
Marshall, 33 years old, hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down. Even on a bad Jets team last year, the veteran posted 788 yards on 59 catches for four touchdowns. Consider that, when thinking about the horrendous quarterbacking the Jets had a year ago.
Now, Marshall will have the benefit of being one of Giants quarterback Eli Manning’s primary targets.
The other, of course, is Odell Beckham Jr.
I won’t go too far into whether or not Beckham and Marshall can get along on the field or in the locker room. Regardless of any diva-like association fans and media give Beckham, one has to imagine he’d be thrilled to have a player like Marshall opening up opponents’ defenses.
Yet this “friendly” competition could wind up going sour very quick.
And fans will be eating popcorn the entire time.
