Sterling Shepard: Odell Beckham would love to return to the Giants

Sterling Shepard talks to Odell Beckham Jr. “every day.” 

A Giants win over the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day would help their case in recruiting OBJ back home.

“I don’t think it would hurt!” Shepard told Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News on Tuesday with a laugh. “To be honest with you, I don’t think it would hurt. We’d be coming off a pretty big win, a big one for us. Definitely wouldn’t hurt. I can say it.”

Shepard said Beckham would “love” to come back to the Giants, as evidenced by his visit to the facility earlier this fall to check on Shepard after he tore his ACL. But there are a lot of factors impacting OBJ’s decision between the Giants, Cowboys and other suitors.

“I talk to him every day, but we don’t talk about [his decision] too much,” Shepard said. “Obviously he knows that we want him here. He would love to be here. But everything has to play out for that to happen.

“There’s a whole bunch of intangibles that have to play out for him to be here,” Shepard continued. “And I understand that. This is a business, and his business has gotta be right for him to do it.”

It is no stretch to say that the Giants (7-3) and Cowboys (7-3) may be playing for Beckham’s services on Thursday in addition to an important victory in the tight NFC East.

Beckham is planning to visit both the Cowboys and Giants in the near future. The San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs also are possible destinations.

The Niners loom as a dark horse to watch. They have coveted Beckham for many years, and they look like a formidable Super Bowl contender.
