The Odell Beckham Jr. market is heating up, as the star wide receiver gets closer to making his return to the NFL after sustaining a torn ACL during last year’s Super Bowl.
Several teams have been mentioned as being in the running for OBJ’s services, and you can include the Dallas Cowboys among them… At least based on what their owner, Jerry Jones, was saying earlier today during his appearance on 105.3 The FAN.
When asked about the Cowboys’ interest in Beckham, Jones praised his current receiving group, hinting that James Washington could be back soon to join the likes of Ceedee Lamb and Michael Gallup.
However, he did not shoot down the idea of signing OBJ, saying that the organization has “all the appreciation in the world for what [Beckham] is as a competitor.”
Then, he dropped the big hint at the Cowboys’ plans by saying that he knows “the Cowboys star on that helmet when he puts it on could look pretty good.”
The appeal of playing for “America’s Team” is obviously one advantage that Jerry Jones and the Cowboys front office will want to take advantage of in their pursuit of Beckham. And their 6-2 record is another attractive feature that they can dangle in front of the 30-year-old wideout.
We’ll find out soon enough.
