With that silence in mind, the team has started to explore scenarios that include them moving on without the franchise icon, who has been bothered by knee problems the last two years.

FILE - In this Dec. 20, 2015, file photo, New York Giants' Odell Beckham (13) hits Carolina Panthers' Josh Norman (24) after teammate Shane Vereen (34) was tackled by Kurt Coleman (20) and Roman Harper (41) during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday, Dec. 20, 2015, in East Rutherford, N.J. Beckham, involved in a game-long helmet-smacking, shoving and jawing session with Norman, scored the tying touchdown with 1:46 left in the Giants' 38-35 loss to Carolina. The question for the NFL is why was OBJ still in the game after losing his cool so many times as Norman was getting the best of him in their high-profile matchup. (AP Photo/Julie Jacobson, File)
