With the revelation that Odell Beckham Jr. is dating Khloe Kardashian, Giants officials have begun an effort to subtly steer their star receiver toward a relationship with Jessica Simpson.

Meanwhile, Giants officials are also trying to encourage Eli Manning to stop hanging out with his mischievous older brother.
