Giants say Odell Beckham wants to do more at practice than they’ll allow

Wide receiver Odell Beckham has been a regular at Giants workouts this offseason despite early reports that he’d stay away from the team without a new contract.

Those reports indicated Beckham wouldn’t so much as step on the field without an extension, but it hasn’t arrived and Beckham keeps showing up. On Monday, head coach Pat Shurmur even said that Beckham is itching to do more work than the team is willing to allow after last year’s fractured ankle.

It’s still not clear why he’s absent. Money could be an issue. Frustration over the still-unexplained benching of Malcolm Butler in Super Bowl LII could be an issue. Fatigue over being constantly yelled at by Belichick, as evidenced by Brady’s quotes from nearly five years ago, could be an issue.

Regardless, his absence won’t help the Patriots win in 2018, and it may help Belichick become more determined to find a quarterback who will be truly all in for 2019.

Defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said Ingram has kept in touch with defensive line coach Giff Smith.

Obviously, as a coach, you want everybody here, Bradley said, via Wang. But I’ve talked to Melvin about that. There’s a great deal of trust with him, too.

Chris Landrum, who spent all of last season on injured Russell Wilson Jersey reserve, got more work in Ingram’s absence.

Ingram, who signed a four-year, $64 million deal with $42 million guaranteed a year ago, has 28 sacks and nine forced fumbles the past three seasons combined. He had 10.5 sacks and 75 pressures last season.

Micheal Haley Jersey White Sox starter James Shields pitched seven innings of two-run ball in a no-decision. He allowed five hits, struck out five and walked two.

I know he gave up a couple of runs, but he did a heck of a job, manager Rick Renteria said.

On Palka’s triple in the eighth, Trumbo ran a long way toward the line and appeared poised to make the catch before the ball hit off his glove.

That’s a tough play for anybody, Trumbo said. I gave it what I personally had. There probably are some faster guys who would make that play a little easier.
