The New York Giants have struck a deal with their shiny new toy in the passing game.
Beckham fills a need for New York alongside slot receiver Victor Cruz on the heels of losing Hakeem Nicks. As a 5-foot-11, 198-pound target with 4.43 speed, Beckham hits the scene with strong route-running abilities that translate to the pro level.
Rookies don't typically see generous playing time in New York's offense, but Beckham could start as early as Week 1 for a Giants team desperate to see quarterback Eli Manning rebound from a disastrous campaign that saw him toss a league-worst 27 interceptions in 2013.
The Giants also signed three additional rookies Monday in center Weston Richburg (their second-round pick), linebacker Devon Kennard (their fifth-rounder) and cornerback Bennett Jackson (a sixth-rounder).
