Who will sign Odell Beckham Jr.?
Just wouldn’t that be an important point Odell Beckham JrIts rehab timeline, but perhaps even in this year’s Super Bowl chase, is the standout wide receiver. Football is expected to be fully cleared for work soon. Nearly nine months after tearing his second ACL, Beckham will be ready to practice for his new team. Who will be that team?
The Rams connections overshadowed each team’s Beckham relationship for most of the offseason. Everyone from Sneads per Sean McVay per Kevin Demoff Beckham expressed optimism Will return to Los Angeles. With the Rams 3-5 and ranked 31st offensively, they no longer appear as favorites. The Rams ($4.2MM cap space) got little from their skill position Cooper’s coup; Beckham will boost the sinking contender’s cause. This franchise has also made a habit of landing big fish.
If he keeps his eye on the multi-year promise, it would make sense to go back to the offense he knows best. Then again, Beckham expressed disappointment in the Rams’ previous offer. Although Sean McVay said last month The team has yet to offer its bestWill such an offer be forthcoming given the current state of the defending Super Bowl champions?
The Cowboys ($6.9MM cap space) may have taken OBJ as the favorite. Dallas is like a corner Micah Parsons And Ezekiel Elliott Hiring him. more importantly, Jerry Jones appears as. In discussing OBJ’s market with NFL staff, Pro Football Focus’ Doug Quaid Came here with the cowboys.
Beckham, 30, will slot in as well CeeDee Lamb As the Cowboys’ top weapon. Dallas’ supporting cast hasn’t shown much this season. of course, Dak PrescottLimited production contribution from its injury Dalton Schultz And Michael Gallup. And the Cowboys just signed a player coming off a December ACL tear (Gallup). While they seem ready to gamble on Beckham, that partnership would mean Lamb’s complementary piece would be each fresh from ACL rehab. But the Cowboys may have their best Super Bowl chance since 2016, when they claimed the NFC’s No. 1 seed. The team may be headed for a No. 5 seed this year, but a dominant pass rush has changed its equation in recent years.
The team viewed Beckham as a second-possible addition, according to Kidd, who the Bills aren’t as adept at attracting free agents. but Josh AllenIts ascension changed the course of the franchise. by Miller Making the unnecessary decision to choose Buffalo over LA could follow Beckham. Miller has been Playing this drum for months. Earlier this season, the Bills Not seen as a key player in this market. with Jamison Crowder (broken ankle) out of the picture and the Bills facing more defensive injuries, has that changed?
Beckham is believed to prefer a warmer climate city, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram , who added the eight-year veteran would change his mind for the “right offer” (Twitter link) Bills has little market advantage over its competition, so the need to navigate that battle isn’t exactly new.
Three-time Pro Bowler Also mentioned the Packers and a Giants reunion Neither of those will check the warm-weather box as a prospect, but the Packers were in on Beckham in 2021 and have been mentioned as a suitor at times over the past few months. But Green Bay fell to 3-6. The NFL’s smallest-market franchise is also going year-over-year Aaron Rodgers. that status affected Davante AdamsInterested in staying with the Packers. With Green Bay needing Beckham more than Dallas, Buffalo or L.A., Adams’ departure has crushed the team’s receiving corps. Considering the Packers’ recent history with big-ticket free agents, Rodgers’ post-2022 plans and the team’s 2022 performance, this could be a tough sell.
Giant GM Joe Schoen said Beckham will be consideredBut did not meet him Jerry Reese-era draft when he visited the following Sterling Shepardinjury of As with almost every team considering Beckham, the Giants have looked Brandin Cooks And Jerry JD Before the trade deadline. The Giants may need an impact receiver more than the Packers, who are listed the least Allen Lazard. No Giants wideout has ever totaled more than 250 yards. Their leading receiver, Darius SlaytonSpent the offseason Brian DoubleIts doghouse
Big Blue came into this season on a rebuilding track. The team was not seen as a prospect Consider trading 2 day picks for even a wideoutAnd it traded a talented but injury-prone receiver (Kadarius Tony) This isn’t the regime that traded Beckham to Cleveland, but would Schoen be willing to sign the injury-prone vet beyond 2022?
Vikings and Chiefs Also mentioned as Beckham Suitors, but each passed before the deadline. Each team gave up Day 2 capital — for TJ Hawkenson and Tony, respectively — already to arms. Kansas City also looked at Cook and OBJ was in the mix last year. Given the Chiefs’ arms race with the Bills, they probably can’t be completely blown away.
