Giants’ 10 biggest salary cap hits in 2018
It’s been more than a year since he skipped all 10 of the voluntary OTAs last offseason of Beckham, the Giants and a leverage battle over his contract negotiations. Beckham told NJ Advance Media in February that it was time to get it over with.
Instead the boiling point came in March, when the Giants still upset with Beckham over a video on social media of him with potential drugs nearby wouldn’t rule out trading their star.
Against that backdrop, NJ Advance Media is introducing the Odell Beckham Jr. Holdout Panic Meter. Watch the video above to see where the OBJHPM is starting June 1.
The metber will be updated as developments between the Giants and Beckham continue through the preseason or until a contract resolution is reached.
Bayonne High School’s hockey coach, David McKenna, will not be returning to his position, and will be replaced by the team’s former head coach, after he was charged with pointing a gun at a student, apparently as a prank, late last year.
The Board of Education during a meeting Wednesday night approved a resolution hiring Harvey Boehm, the high school’s longtime head varsity hockey coach who retired in 2013.
Boehm, who has taught history at Bayonne High School for the past 23 years, has guided the team to some of its best seasons. The team reached the state Public School semifinals in 1997 and 1999, and in 2000 won the Public School championship to complete a 21-8-1 season.
Tadd Haislop: Beckham. A team working to trade for him would need a long-term deal in place, and Beckham has said he wants to become the highest-paid player — not just receiver — in football. Not that he’ll get it, but those are the demands we’re working with here. Leonard, on the other hand, would lose money if traded, because the Spurs have the ability to pay him the most possible on a max contract.
