New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will not hold out from training camp.

Beckham is recovering from a surgically repaired ankle that was injured last season and he wants a new contract, but on Saturday he said he will attend the team's training camp.

"No holdout," Beckham told reporters at his football camp Saturday in Metuchen, N.J., per SNY.

Set to play for $8.5 million on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal in 2018, Beckham is seeking a long-term contract extension that will make him the NFL's highest-paid wide receiver.

Asked by reporters if they will see him at next month's camp that opens on July 25, Beckham responded: "Yes, you will."

Beckham attended the team's first three organized team activities and was also present at three days of voluntary minicamp before the 2018 NFL Draft. He missed the final seven OTAs before participating in the three-day minicamp on a limited basis.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, the 25-year-old Beckham was limited to four games in 2017 before he was injured. Without their best offensive player, the Giants slumped to a 3-13 record last season while New York's offense ranked 31st in the league in scoring at 15.4 points per game.

Beckham has 313 catches for 4,424 yards with 38 touchdowns in four seasons with the Giants. He was named the 2014 Offensive Rookie of the Year.
