A team source told Anderson that agent Zeke Sandhu and the Giants worked diligently to consummate a deal but could not agree on Beckham's market value.
The Giants are valuing Beckham at a total average annual value -- when including his 2018 salary of $8.5 million -- below Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins, who has an average annual value of $16 million in his current deal, a source told Anderson.
On Saturday, Beckham said at a news conference that his contract situation is trending in the right direction.
"Optimistic? Yeah. I'm optimistic," Beckham said. "I'm confident it will all work itself out. It always does."
No deal in place for OBJ and Giants
Josina Anderson reports that the Giants are valuing Odell Beckham Jr. at a number less than Sammy Watkins.
