NFL Rumors: Wide Receivers to Replace Odell Beckham Jr for the New York Giants

Before the New York Giants fans and the rest of the NFL jump down my throat saying "you can't replace OBJ." I totally agree you don't replace a player like Beckham but the Giants need some players to step up or find some wide receivers who are free agents. They did lose OBJ, Brandon Marshall, and Sterling Shepard this week all to injuries.

It is too bad seeing a young and talented wide receiver like Beckham suffer a season-ending injury. So who are some viable options the Giants could look at?

1.) Travis Rudolph
Rudolph is a fan favorite after a solid preseason and he will be the guy that gets the call-up. Rudolph worked his way up the depth chart and even got some first-team reps this preseason.

2.) Victor Cruz
Cruz was obviously great for the Giants a few years ago and I understand he isn't what he was after his knee injury but he is a veteran guy who knows the offense.

3.) Terrell Ownes and Chad Johnson
Both of these players tweeted out that they would be interested in joining the Giants after Beckham's injury.

I ordered these in most likely to happen. Again let me stress the Giants cannot and will not be able to replace Beckham but they have to at least try to stop the bleeding. The Giants are 0-5 and have three tough games coming up with the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks, and Los Angeles Rams.
