These Odell Beckham Jr. trade rumors just won't die.

On Tuesday's show, WFAN's Boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti discussed the possibility of the Giants dealing their superstar wide receiver.

Esiason said it's only a matter of time before the Beckham situation comes to a head.

"If you're the Giants, you know a headache is coming. ... I'm telling you, it's coming," Esiason said. "It may not come now. It may not be until this time next year. But a headache is coming from Odell Beckham Jr. because of what Antonio Brown did." 

Unhappy with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Brown skipped practices before the season finale, was suspended for the game and then left the stadium at halftime. He then requested a trade and was dealt to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday for third- and fifth-round draft picks.

Despite general manager Dave Gettleman repeatedly saying he didn't sign Beckham to a long-term contract just to trade him, multiple reports Monday said Big Blue is at least listening to offers for the three-time Pro Bowl wideout.

One report indicated the 49ers are interested in trading for Beckham, which led newly signed San Francisco linebacker and OBJ's former college teammate Kwon Alexander to tweet, "Yesssir come on @obj."

"I think that the Giants would probably like to keep a sane Odell Beckham Jr. on the roster," Giannotti said. "I don't know if that's possible, and I would not be surprised if they were floating this out there, having conversations to see how desperate a team would be.

Giannotti suggested the Giants may be trying to see if the 49ers would offer the second overall pick in the draft.

But Gio added that he's still skeptical Big Blue will pull the trigger on a Beckham trade.

"He's not going to get traded, is he?" he said. "I think that the Giants would look into just about anything. But is he really going to get traded?"
