The New York Giants are having a great start to their 2022 NFL season.
They have nearly matched their win total from last season after earning a 3-1 record after the first quarter of games.
It hasn’t been an easy road because they’ve won those three games by one possession.
Meanwhile, their only loss was a seven-point setback against the Dallas Cowboys.
While they are rolling through the first four weeks, the Giants can use more help on offense because Saquon Barkley has been carrying the squad.
Aside from 463 rushing yards and two touchdowns, the former Penn State standout also has the third-most receiving yards (107) for the Giants.
Barkley also has one of New York’s three receiving touchdowns so far.
That’s why they rank 31st in passing yards per game (139.5) and are in the bottom half of points per game (19).
Therefore, a talented wideout like Odell Beckham Jr. can help their cause once he returns to action from his ACL injury.
However, ESPN’s Jordan Raanan elaborated that Beckham’s recent visit to New York is just a person checking out his friends.
Wasn't reported as an official visit or tryout. Odell still very friendly with Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley, so still closely monitors his old team. https://t.co/jyTtEiouh4

Beckham Went To New York As A Tourist
Raanan tweeted, “Wasn’t reported as an official visit or tryout. Odell still very friendly with Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley, so still closely monitors his old team.”
He commented this in response to CBS Sports Josina Anderson’s post, which said, “I am told that WR Odell Beckham Jr. was in the building today, doing a little visit with the #Giants, etc……. Same day as former #Giants S Landon Collins worked out for the team. This will be fun.”
There is no timetable yet for Beckham’s return, but he continues to work on his full recovery.
A bidding war will ensue once he is cleared to play, and his former team might throw their name into the hat.
The Giants drafted the former LSU standout in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
He stayed there for five seasons, earning two All-Pro and three Pro Bowl distinctions.
