Jets fans are anxiously waiting for New York and Green Bay to work out a trade that will bring Aaron Rodgers to the Meadowlands. That is not the only deal they are waiting for.
As Rodgers-to-New York chatter really started to heat up, so did the speculation about Beckham joining the superstar quarterback.
As of Thursday morning, the Jets appear to be the favorite to land OBJ.
“Odell Beckham Jr. has offers on the table from multiple teams, and I am told the Jets are the most likely landing spot but that Beckham could be waiting to make sure the Aaron Rodgers deal gets completed before finalizing his own decision. Baltimore has made a push for Beckham as well,” ESPN’s Dan Graziano wrote.

NFL insider Jeremy Fowler added some other notes about Beckham’s free agency.
“A few people I spoke to believe Rodgers is the quarterback with whom Beckham wants to play,” Fowler wrote. “The next step could be Beckham taking a physical for the Jets or another team. A team will need to feel good about his recovery from a second ACL tear. As one league source forecasted, perhaps Beckham earns a deal of around $8 million per year that can reach $10-plus million with incentives. With a very sluggish free agency market after the initial wave, that’s probably considered a win for Beckham.”
Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer added that Beckham’s asking price was in the $15 million a year neighborhood, which will still likely need to come down further before he signs with a team.
The standout WR held a private workout for interested teams in Arizona. There were reportedly 11 teams in attendance including the Panthers, Giants, Patriots, Rams, Cardinals, 49ers, Bills, Chiefs, Vikings, Browns and Ravens.
During his last full season in 2021, Beckham appeared in 14 games for the Browns and Rams and caught 44 receptions for 537 yards receiving and five touchdowns.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
