NFL Offseason Roundup: Week of June 7

As teams move their preparations for the road to Super Bowl LII behind the scenes for the months of June and July, we’re taking a look at the latest breaking headlines around the NFL this week.

Odell Beckham Jr. looking for new deal with Giants

Pro-Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s absence from the New York Giants’ organized team activities (OTAs) has been well documented over the last several weeks. On Wednesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that OBJ’s absence is directly tied to the player’s “desire for a new deal.”

Despite Schefter’s tweet, nobody from Beckham Jr. has confirmed (nor denied) the reports.

Kirk Cousins’ contract talks with Washington Redskins improving

Schefter was a busy man on Wednesday morning, also breaking the news that the long and often strained contract talks between the Washington Redskins and quarterback Kirk Cousins have recently improved, raising optimism on hopes the team can secure the quarterback long-term. According to Schefter, there has been an “encouraging” tone and increase involvement from team owner Daniel Snyder.

New York Jets make flurry of moves

The New York Jets seem to be in a seemingly endless downward spiral, this week making announcements that the team would lead the team in a younger direction by cutting linebacker David Harris and making a decision to move on from wide receiver Eric Decker.

Despite an off season in 2016, the season before saw 80 catches for 1,027 yards and 12 touchdowns for the former Denver Broncos star receiver. The Jets have stated their intentions to release Decker, should the team not be able to find a trade suitor.
