Odell Beckham Jr.’s price has gone down.
The free-agent wide receiver was once seeking a huge contract worth $20 million a year. Since there haven’t been any takers, Beckham has lowered his prince to a one-year deal worth $15 million a year.
Rich Cimini of ESPN.com thinks Beckham is going to have to back down to about $10 million a year before anyone takes a look at him.

Cimini said Beckham can get a deal between $10-12 million with some incentives, which is the most likely scenario.
However, Beckham seems to be upset that no team is willing to offer him more than $4 million a year, and you can understand why.
Beckham hasn’t played in two years and it has taken him a while to recover from the ACL injury he suffered a few years ago in the Super Bowl.
Many NFL experts thought that he’d sign with the Cowboys or he’d go home back to New York and play for the Giants, but his asking price has been too high for teams to take a chance on him.
The Cowboys and Giants have apparently moved on and now there are rumors that Beckham may end up with the Jets and play with Aaron Rodgers, but only, as they say, if the price is right.
