Free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has plans to visit with three teams, according to one of his former Los Angeles Rams teammates.
Beckham suffered a torn ACL in the Rams’ Super Bowl 56 win over the Cincinnati Bengals eight months ago. The 29-year-old is expected to return to action at some point in the second half of the season, and there surely won’t be a lack of teams interested in his services.
While speaking to the media on Wednesday, Buffalo Bills star linebacker Von Miller stated that his ex-Rams teammate is planning to visit with three NFC clubs.
Here’s what Miller said, per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times:
“He is going on tour now. He’s going to the Giants’ practice facility and the Saints, Tampa and all that stuff ― which you should. You should go around and see the league and get the love. He’s still on (his) Super Bowl tour.”
Per ESPN’s Alaina Getzenberg, Miller believes that Beckham could fit in with the Bills.
Beckham was drafted in the first round, 12th overall, by the New York Giants in 2014. He spent his first five seasons there before the organization unexpectedly traded him to the Cleveland Browns in 2019.
After three up-and-down seasons with the Browns, Beckham was released in the midst of the 2021 season. He then signed with the Los Angeles Rams, who desperately needed receiving help after Robert Woods suffered a season-ending ACL tear.
The three-time Pro Bowler and two-time Second-Team All-Pro proved to be a valuable addition to the Rams offense. After recording zero touchdowns for Cleveland in six 2021 outings, he posted five for the Rams in just eight games.
Beckham fared even better in the postseason, racking up 21 catches for 288 yards and two touchdowns. Los Angeles would defeat Cincinnati 23-20 in the big game to claim their first Super Bowl since 1990.
The Giants are off to a surprising 3-1 start, so Beckham could feel inclined to return to the team that drafted him. The New Orleans Saints are struggling at 1-3, but OBJ could be interested in joining an offense with Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas, old friend Jarvis Landry and rookie standout Chris Olave.
Of course, the Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers give him a better chance of winning a Super Bowl.
