The name is Beast here. Not Shaquem. No, at Sunrise Lanes this rain-soaked night, And instantly you can see it’s warranted. The ball shoots out of his right hand like a bullet, backspinning at the last possible moment to clobber the pins.
Many in the industry believe Beckham would be unwise to risk injury by showing up on his current contract.
Of course, Beckham is already injured, or, more exactly, was already injured, and is rehabbing a fractured left ankle suffered in Week 5 last season. While he was sidelined, the Giants fired their head coach (Ben McAdoo) and general manager (Jerry Reese), and Beckham is returning to a new regime, with Gettleman leading the front office and Pat Shurmur the new head coach. Beckham needs to make a positive impression if he is to get what he wants, and staying away or issuing thinly veiled threats is a difficult way to do it.
Beckham also has to prove to ownership he is mature and trustworthy enough for the franchise to invest in him, and thus far this offseason, he is off to a rocky start.

The strong-armed Allen has been viewed as a potential first overall pick for months. There have been conflicting reports about how much the Browns like Allen, but some think he’s the favorite to be the first player off the board.
The Dolphins have indicated that they remain committed to Ryan Tannehill as their franchise quarterback, but the fact that they’re kicking the tires on Allen suggests that they’d consider a first-round quarterback if the right one is available in the right spot. The Dolphins own the 11th overall pick in the draft, and Allen is expected to be gone by then, but if the Browns don’t draft Allen, there’s a chance the Dolphins could move up for him — which would signal that they’re getting ready to move on from Tannehill.
