In an interview with Uninterrupted, Beckham said he wants to become the highest-paid player in the NFL:
"I believe that I will be hopefully not just the highest-paid receiver in the league, but the highest-paid, period," he said (h/t NJ Advance Media's James Kratch).
Beckham could top that with his next contract. Since the Giants selected him with the 12th overall pick in the 2014 draft, he's third in receiving yards (4,122) and tied for first with Brown in touchdowns (35), according to Pro Football Reference.
Beckham might be aiming a bit too high, though, if he wants to be the highest-paid player in the league. Quarterback is by far the most valued position the field, as evidenced by the fact the top 15 average salaries all belong to quarterbacks, per Spotrac.
Derek Carr owns the distinction of being the highest-paid player in the NFL after agreeing to a five-year, $125 million extension with the Oakland Raiders. Beckham's agent will have to work overtime in order to convince the Giants or another team to offer the three-time Pro Bowler an even richer contract.
