Sounds like he's retiring...?

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports the Giants are "unsure" about DE Owa Odighizuwa's plans for the future.

Odighizuwa tweeted Monday he was going "to take some time to get away from the game." The announcement reportedly blindsided teammates, and "several" people close to Odighizuwa could not reach him after he sent the tweets, which is concerning considering Raanan reports he is working through some "emotional things." Odighizuwa was a third-round pick in 2015.

Yikes, I hope the young man can get his life together. I saw some of his tweets that confirm he is stepping away. Best of luck to him.

Or maybe he's staying with the Giants ...

It sounds like he's got some issues to work through -- hopefully he finds help.

No idea what is up with him, maybe just frustration that he has not been able to play or maybe something in his head that he needs to work through.

Pretty poor pick when you consider the guys picked around him were David Johnson and Danielle Hunter!

Come on Paul, the guy feels bad enough without you reminding him about that.

Haha I cant help it. I cant stand Jerry Reese. He is the worst GM in the league in my opinion> So bland, predictable and boring. But I do admit I am biased. I can even make a pretty convincing argument that Beckham was a bad pick...

Agreed. Sorry to see this guy having issues. Interesting development with him.

Ok Nick, will do my best. Bare with me, bit of an essay coming up...

Firstly, when I say bad pick I am being dramatic. He obviously wasn't a bad pick. But my argument is there was a much much better way to do that draft. I will try and explain this without using hindsight, so just the information that was available at the time.

We knew that Giants D was in trouble and the fans were all saying D was the way to go in the draft. The draft was littered with quality WRs meaning conventional logic would tell you that you could pick up a good receiver further down the draft.

Who was picked straight after Beckham? Literally the pick after. None other than Aaron Donald. Beckham is a superstar but so is Donald - difference is Donald is a superstar at a shortage position, making him more valuable.

We also know that Giants did a lot of work on LSU that year. So they would have done a lot of work on Jarvis Landry - who it was pretty obvious would have been available where the Giants picked in the 2nd (he was).

We picked a Centre with the 41st pick, which has proved to be a reach. But again there were good Centres available in the 3rd. Swanson was available in the 3rd who has probably been a better player in the league so far than Richburg - although that is close.

Then I will use some hindsight to back this up. Beckham plays well, but Giants have 2 badly losing seasons. The team actually got worse in terms of record in the years after Beckham joins. The team finally produces a winning season last year - guess what made that happen. It wasnt beckham, because he played the same way he always has. It was investing in Defence: Vernon, Harrison and Jack Rabbit.

So in summary my pick would have been:
1st) Donald
2nd) Landry
3rd) Swanson

I said that at the time and I maintain it now. It's been fun watching Beckham but that way round we would have won more games - simple as that.

It's like in vogue to retire nowadays. Guess you can't take it seriously until papers are filed.

Can the Giants take care of the inevitable and cut this guy already?

If his career so far is his enhanced performance, I'd hate to see what he'd do normally
