NEW YORK — New York Jets quarterback Odell “The Eagle” Beckham Jr., the team’s most accomplished player since its Super Bowl championship in 2016, signed a three-yr, $30 million contract extension Wednesday with the New York Giant.
The deal includes a $7.9 million signing bonus, a $2 million workout bonus, $5 million guaranteed base salary, $6.965 million base salary for the 2020 season and $4.45 million for the 2021 season, according to a team release.
Beckham has made 11 starts for the Giants, which has been one of the league’s best teams this season.
Beckham will be under center for the first time since his MVP-winning season with the Giants in 2016.
He played in three games last season, including two starts, due to an ankle injury.
He was benched for Eli Manning in Week 3, the first game of the regular season.
The Giants will have to pay him $4 million in 2020 and $7 million in 2021.
They will pay him his $6 million base salaries for 2019 and 2020.
Beckman signed his $15 million extension in May, with the team set to pay $8.5 million in base salaries and $10 million in signing bonus.
