There have been plenty of teams linked to Odell Beckham Jr. in recent months, but the free agent wide receiver still remains one of the hottest names available on the market midway through the season.
Beckham, who is rehabilitating a torn ACL he suffered during Super Bowl LVI in February, has kept his options open but, according to recent reports, the star could be close to making a decision in the coming weeks. But while growing speculation will surely lead to some interesting conversations around the NFL, there’s barely been enough news reporting to suggest OBJ has narrowed down its picks to just one destination.
NFL fans looking for more information on the factors that could weigh in on Beckham’s impending move may have received some interesting behind-the-scenes insight from the man himself thanks to a recent interview. In a clip shared Sunday from an upcoming episode of Complex’s VolumeBeckham dropped the Bills, Packers, Cowboys and his first NFL team, the Giants, as teams he had contact with before discussing the ideal situation for the next chapter of his career.
“Whether it’s Buffalo, calling Green Bay, Cowboys, reuniting with the Giants, I want to be able to overturn – not to say I only have three or four left, but those three or next four years – into something where I can buy a home, like I can call this place home,” Beckham said.
The 30-year-old’s desire to put down roots wherever he decides to exercise his talents is understandable given the milestones he’s reached in his eighth season in the NFL. Beckham won his first Super Bowl with the Rams on February 13, then welcomed the birth of his son, Zydn, four days later.
While it remains to be seen where OBJ ends up taking his talents, his mention of the Cowboys could certainly raise a lot of eyebrows given a report that emerged Sunday morning.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Dallas has a legitimate interest in Beckham whenever he’s ready to return. Rapoport also noted that interested teams, which could also include the Bills, Giants, Rams, Chiefs and Packers, expect OBJ to be healthy and sign with a team in early December.
