The agent for New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
had a long conversation with the team's assistant general manager during
practice on Thursday.

Zeke Sandhu of Elite Athlete Management and Kevin Abrams of the Giants talked
for almost two hours on the patio overlooking the team's practice fields as
Beckham and teammates held a morning workout.

Neither man was available to the media.

Giants co-owner John Mara said last week the team was going to start
negotiations on a new contract for the 25-year-old Beckham. He will make $8.5
million this season in the fifth and final season of his rookie deal. The
three-time Pro Bowler has said he wants to be among the NFL's highest-paid

When asked by The Associated Press if the team had anything to say about
Sandhu and Abrams talking Youth

, Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon replied:

A telephone call to Sandhu went to his voicemail, which was full. An email
from The AP to Elite Athlete Management was not immediately answered.

Beckham missed most of last season after breaking an ankle in early October.
He has shown no side effects in training camp and his quickness and speed seem
to be the same.

"He's doing what we expected him to do," said coach Pat Shurmur, who said
Beckham was engaged and energetic. "Again, most of the scripted periods, we give
him the plays that are necessary for him to learn. He's right on track."

Shurmur said he does not comment on contract talks.

Beckham has not spoken to the media since the team reported to training camp
on July 25. He seemingly sticks to football in conversations with other

"Yeah, most of the time it's about technique or what I was thinking on some
route or what he was thinking or whatever is coming up in the script ,
and what we're excited for," fellow receiver Sterling Shepard said about his
discussions with Beckham on Thursday. "We're always just picking each other's
brain. I'm always picking his brain, for sure. Trying to see what he's thinking
or what he thought about whatever just happened, or whatever I just did."

Beckham has made the Giants' offense go since being drafted in the first
round in 2014. In 47 NFL games, the former LSU player has 313 catches for 4,424
yards and 38 touchdowns.

Oakland Raiders cornerback Gareon
Conley is dealing with another training camp injury and is expected to miss at
least two weeks because of a hip strain.

Conley has not practiced since the first day of training camp last week and
only made a brief appearance Monday while the rest of the team worked out in

Raiders coach Jon Gruden did not specify how long Conley's recovery will
take, but it seems certain that the 24th overall pick in 2017 will at least sit
out the team's first preseason game against Detroit on Aug. 10.

"I don't have a time frame," Gruden said. "I think that (two weeks) would be
a fair assessment, yes."

For the 23-year-old Conley, it has to feel like deja vu after missing all of
training camp as a rookie because of shin injury that lingered into the regular

, Conley played in only two games last season
and showed his potential when he made a stellar leaping breakup of a pass
against the Jets in Week 2. But he never fully recovered from the injury and was
placed on injured reserve in November.

Conley arrived in Napa last week hopeful of claiming a starting spot in
Oakland's revamped secondary. In a tweet the night before the first practice, he
wrote: "Praying for a healthy camp and a healthy season for me and all my

Conley got off to a good start, making an athletic play Friday to break up a
pass in 7-on-7 drills after initially getting beat on an inside move. He left
practice not long after that and has yet to return.

His absence comes as the Raiders are installing a new system under defensive
coordinator Paul Guenther.

Guenther said he was optimistic that Conley won't be out too long and noted
that his absence has opened up opportunities for other players.

"We have a lot of guys working out there at corner. It's going to be a good
battle to see who come out of it," Guenther said. "We're going to try to get him
back on the field and make sure he's in the meeting room taking notes and
understanding that he's not getting behind with the techniques of what we're

While Conley recovers, Daryl Worley has been practicing at right cornerback
with the starting defense. Veteran Rashaan Melvin is on the left side.

Asked if he was concerned about Conley's injury, Gruden paused.

"I don't know if concerned is the word. I think disappointed is the word,"
Gruden said. "He comes out to start training camp Authentic

, he's in superb shape, he makes a great
play and he gets a setback. Hopefully he comes back sooner than later.
Disappointed is the big word I think. His heart is broken. He's put a lot into
this and he knows he has to stay healthy and get out there for us because we
need him."
