Odell Beckham Jr. is raising eyebrows over several teams that he recently mentioned that have been in contact with him.
With the NFL trade deadline in the rearview mirror, the only way teams can upgrade their roster is by signing free agents. Easily the biggest free agent is Odell, and that is only because he is still recovering from a torn ACL from the Super Bowl. His expected return was always supposed to be November, so now teams are making that call to see what type of contract that can iron out to get the dynamic WR on their roster.
During a recent interview with Complex Sports, Odell mentioned the Buffalo Bills, the Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, and even his old stomping ground in the New York Giants.
“Whether it’s Buffalo, Green Bay calling, the Cowboys, reunion with the Giants…”

The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly interested in signing the veteran receiver, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. He added Dallas has had regular check-ins regarding Beckham’s health.
Cowboys legend and Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin even stated he and Beckham have talked about him joining the Cowboys as he works himself back into football shape.
“I would love to see Odell on the Cowboys,” Irvin said. “But even bigger than that, I guarantee, I could tell you Odell would love to see Odell on the Cowboys. Trust me. Trust me. Trust me. I know Odell. Odell and I have had conversations about that a long time ago.”
Previously, the Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers were reported to be his top suitors last month, with the New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams potentially in the mix as well.
As of right now, Beckham is wanting a multi-year deal and a home to end his career following a few years of searching and now waiting. The last two years have seen him play in Cleveland and and Los Angeles.
Beckham had an outstanding 2021 season after a split with the Browns. He recorded 27 catches for 305 yards and five touchdowns in eight games with Los Angeles, adding 21 catches for 288 yards and two touchdowns in four postseason games.
Beckham had two catches for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Super Bowl before going down with a knee injury.
