Odell Beckham Jr. is reportedly aiming to make up his mind on his next destination by the end of this month. The Super Bowl winner is the top free agent available after rehabbing the torn ACL he suffered while winning the NFL showpiece with the Los Angeles Rams.
Beckham Jr. has been linked with the Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs and New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers and he’s looking to make a decision on his next team this month, according to report .
The report claims the 30-year-old is eyeing a team in contention with all those aforementioned fitting the bill. The Cowboys interest in him has stepped up with owner Jerry Jones recently saying he ‘could look pretty good’ with the team. Dallas VP Stephen Jones was the latest from the franchise to express their interest.
‘Odell is someone that we have all the appreciation in the world for what he is as a competitor,’ he told 105.3 The FAN. ‘I know the Cowboys star on that helmet when he puts it on could look pretty good.’
The comments came after Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the team’s interest. ‘Number one, we really love our receiver group, and I really like the balance of the veterans versus the young guys,’ McCarthy told reporters Monday. ‘I think we got some better football with more opportunities in front of us.’
‘In particular to Odell, I’ve always been a huge fan of his,’ McCarthy added. ‘From [former Giants head coach] Ben McAdoo, Joe Whitt [Jr.], all the guys between that I’ve worked with from the New York Giants and the Cleveland Browns, everybody has nothing but great things to say about him.
‘Obviously I’ve always been so impressed with his football playing ability, but I’ve just heard so many excellent, excellent things about him over the years. I think those are conversations for the future. Right now, we’re focused on our guys.’
‘Whether it’s Buffalo, Green Bay calling, the Cowboys, reunion with the Giants, I want to be able to spill not saying I only got three or four left, but these next three or four years into something where I can buy a home, like I can call this place home,’ he said.
Last weekend Beckham Jr. named four teams he could potentially join once his rehabilitation is completed in mid-December. Beckham Jr. previously took an unofficial visit to the New York Giants’ building to see former teammates Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley.
