Odell Beckham Jr. is in the building.

According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, the New York Giants wide receiver reported to the team’s facility in East Rutherford, New Jersey for a physical in advance of tomorrow’s start of a mandatory three-day minicamp.

Beckham posted a video of his offseason workouts on his Instagram account with the hashtag #ImBack Sunday night.

He skipped all 10 of the Giants voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) sessions, reportedly because of his dissatisfaction with his contract. He worked out in California with Johnny Manziel and Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter.

Beckham did not report Friday’s final OTA session despite being in Manhattan the night before. He was in Cleveland Friday night for Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.

He had no financial incentive to attend OTAs (unlike defensive end Olivier Vernon, who missed out on a $250,000 bonus for skipping OTAs). The mandatory three-day minicamp is another story. He would have been fined a total of $80,405 if he missed all three days: $13,400 for Tuesday, $26,800 for Wednesday, and $40,205 for Thursday.

Beckham is the final year of his rookie contact and will make $1.8 million this season. The Giants picked up his fifth-year option that will raise his salary to $8.4 million in 2018. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ Antonio Brown is the NFL’s highest paid receiver at $17 million a year.

Beckham has 288 receptions for 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns in three seasons with the Giants.
