Top Contenders for Odell Beckham Jr. This Season
| LAST UPDATE 10/26/2022
Although the 2022 NFL season has already kicked off to a great start, there is one giant piece of the football puzzle that is still missing: Odell Beckham Jr. Since the Los Angeles Rams took home the Super Bowl win at the beginning of the year, NFL fans are dying to know where the wide receiver is going to land up. So, now that the clock is ticking, who will be the lucky team to sign the free agent?
Although it is relatively uncommon for midseason acquisitions to take place and dramatically change the game, it definitely can happen, as it did last year for the Rams. In 2021, the LA home team traded Von Miller for Odell Beckham Jr. in November and got a Super Bowl win out of it! Now that the 29-year-old athlete has a Super Bowl win under his belt, a newborn baby at home in Los Angeles, and is coming off of a recent ACL injury, the question remains of which team he is going to call home.
So, we have the obvious choice of re-signing with the Rams. Although the team is no longer looking like a top Super Bowl contender, with the teams' star power depleted after Von Miller, Jalen Ramsey, and Aaron Donald's departure, LA is home to his eight-month-old baby and girlfriend, Lauren Wood. However, why not go back to his original stomping grounds in New York, playing for the Giants? With a new GM and head coach, OBJ could make a real impact here. But if he's looking to take home another Super Bowl, the Buffalo Bills are looking like a fan favorite this year. Not to mention, Von Miller is currently dominating the field as an outside linebacker and is heavily attempting to recruit Beckham.
The Kansas City Chiefs may not need OBJ on their team, being the second-best passing offense in the league right now (behind the Bills), but with the former All-Pro on board, the Chiefs would almost be secured a spot in the Super Bowl. Then we have the Dallas Cowboys, who may be one of the top teams in the league, but are currently lacking a solid offense and actually make the most sense for Beckham and the team. Last but not least, we have the Baltimore Ravens, who also have a weak receiving core that a little OBJ magic could fix. Stay tuned.
