So, see, there's no doubt about that.
Beckham's appearance comes after the 24-year-old chose not to attend the Giants' organized team activities during the past month.
Sure enough, ESPN's Josina Anderson reported that he was at the team's facility Monday, just in time for physicals.
Beckham's absence, believed to be related to his modest contract and wish for more, was dissected in great detail.
Beckham doesn't say which camp he's in, but the video part of the post shows him going through the workouts that kept him occupied while the Giants were doing OTAs.
According to USA Today's Giants Wire, Odell Beckham Jr. enters his fourth season in the National Football League still playing on his rookie contract that pays him a little over $2.5 million on average annually.
New York's front office surely would like to lock up Beckham on a new long-term deal but may need to find the cap space after spending big money in free agency last offseason. The deal with Nike is believed to be worth $29 million over five years with incentives that ESPN reports could bring its total to $48 million.
"I will be workin harder than I ever have, to be the best that I ever have been", he tweeted about that in April.
Much has happened since then.
