Giants head coach Ben McAdoo isn’t giving up much information when it comes to Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall.
Both receivers were injured in the Giants’ 10-6 preseason loss to the Browns Monday night, but it’s unclear the extent of the injuries or what their respective recovery timetables are.
The Steelers wrapped up their training camp on Friday with Bell still holding out, though he’s expected to return to the organization at some point before the start of the regular season.
Bell reportedly turned down a five-year deal worth $60 million that his agent agreed to with the team at the July 17 NFL deadline for players to sign long-term contracts. He will instead earn $12.12 million under the franchise tag this season.
Bell, 25, rushed for 1,268 yards and seven touchdowns in 12 games last season while also catching 75 passes for 616 yards and two scores. Although he’s missed 16 games in his four-year career due to injuries and suspensions, the All-Pro selection has logged 6,050 yards from scrimmage and 31 offensive touchdowns in 47 regular-season games.
Sanu had been a third target for most of his career when the Falcons decided to pay him mid-level second receiver money. The guarantee is really what sets the contract apart from the other receivers, as he received double what most players get in the fully guaranteed portion of the contract. Sanu, in his first year in Atlanta, failed to reach 700 yards.
