New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. may not play again this season, but the chatter about his value continues to be a big topic. 

Super Bowl MVP and five-time All Pro linebacker Von Miller still believes that the New York Giants star wide receiver deserves to be the NFL's highest-paid player, despite not being a quarterback and after having suffered a season-ending injury on Sunday.

Beckham said this summer he wanted to be the NFL's highest-paid player. But he fractured his ankle in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and underwent surgery on Monday night.

"He should be the highest-paid player ever, regardless of position. That's just the type of player he is. ... The type of impact that he has on the globe, the type of viewers that he brings -- just him as a player. That makes up for him not playing quarterback. So, he's a once-in-a-lifetime player."

Per ESPN, Miller doesn't think that should scare the Giants off even one bit.

"Odell should be the highest-paid player ever in the National Football League," Miller said Wednesday on a conference call with Giants reporters ahead of Sunday's Giants-Broncos matchup. "He should be the highest-paid player ever, regardless of position. That's just the type of player he is. It doesn't matter if it's quarterback, offensive line, receiver. It doesn't matter. The type of impact that he has on the globe, the type of viewers that he brings -- just him as a player. That makes up for him not playing quarterback. So, he's a once-in-a-lifetime player. Definitely deserving.

"There's no reason that he won't come back and be the same type of player. That's just one of the guys that you invest in. When you get a guy like that, that's the guy that you invest in, that you want to keep around for his whole career."
