Free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys fans hyped up after reading his latest tweets.
Odell Beckham Jr. is a highly-coveted free agent one week after the trade deadline. He is making his return from a torn ACL in Super Bowl 56, but is set to be cleared to play this week, according to FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer. Teams in need of a wide receiver, or those who want to bolster their roster to make a run to the big game this February, will be making calls to try and convince Beckham to sign.
Earlier on Tuesday, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons recruited Beckham on Twitter, saying “man OBJ talk to me.” Beckham responded later on in the night, citing that he has family near Dallas, but said “I’m just tryna win…wherever I go.”
Odell Beckham teases interest in Cowboys, Chiefs on Twitter
Beckham was not done there. When Arrowhead Pride’s Mark Gunnels threw out a Chiefs pitch to the wide receiver, who responded with “it ain’t out of the question.”
The Cowboys have been one of the more recent teams to be linked to Beckham, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo. Owner Jerry Jones expressed interest in Beckham potentially signing with the team during an interview with 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, saying that him wearing a Cowboys helmet would look “pretty good.”
As for the Chiefs, they do have one of the top offenses in the NFL. They had JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling entering the season after they traded Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins. But days ahead of the trade deadline, they acquired Kadarius Toney from the New York Giants. It will be interesting to see just how much the Chiefs are in on Beckham.
Make no mistake about it, the NFL world will have their focus set on where Beckham signs for the 2022 season and potentially beyond.
