Odell Beckham skips OTAs: Precursor to holdout?
Odell Beckham is pretty closeto finishing rehab on his surgically repaired ankle, according to coach Pat Shurmur, but it is his contract status that could become the Giants ‘ Achilles heel.
Beckham skipped Week 2 of organized team activities, meaning he wasn’t on the practice field for the first time with his teammates after going 6-for-6 three in a pre-draft minicamp and three in the first week of OTAs in voluntary attendance to start the offseason.
I don’t know how he knew, but he told me at the end of the game, or the next day, a couple days later, he’s like, ‘I knew,’Johnson said. And I could tell that he knew. It was something I could tell by the way he was looking.
Johnson said breaking the news to Caldwell was like telling your dad something. He wasn’t disappointed, but you just feel like you let him down cause you’re moving on.
McKenna, a 1997 graduate of BHS, was hired as the head coach in 2014. He resigned last month from his job as head coach and from his position as a history teacher, five months after the gun incident inside the Korpi Ice Rink before a practice.
On Nov. 30, 2017, McKenna was in the coach’s office at the ice rink when he pointed a handgun belonging to State Trooper Rich Korpi Jr. at an 18-year-old Bayonne High School student and assistant coach Nicholas Brancatella as a prank. Assistant coach Scott Lewkowitz was also in the office at the time.
The incident was not reported until nearly two days after it occurred, and only after the player’s father confronted one of the coaches.
Following a police investigation, McKenna was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for later this month.
Korpi, a volunteer coach with the hockey team, told police he was not in the room at the time and did not find out about the incident until four days later. The ice rink was named for his father in 1986. Korpi is no longer a coach with the hockey team and he has not been charged.
