Beckham, who was a no-show at Giants OTA on Monday, reportedly agreed to a five-year deal with Nike, matching Adidas offer that exceeded $29 million, according to Nicekicks.com.

Beckhams current deal with Nike expired May 1, but the star wideout was still a restricted free agent, allowing Nike to match any offer within a 10-day window. Tuesdays deal came on the final day of that time period.

The contract could be worth as much as $48 million for eight years if Beckham reaches certain incentive levels, according to The Record. Beckham, who has been named to the Pro Bowl in each of his first three years in the league, is set to earn $1.8 million in the final year of his rookie contract. Last month, theGiants picked up his fifth-year option for 2018 that will pay him $8.5 million.
