NFL rumors: Jerry Jones is so going to sign Odell Beckham Jr. in free agency
Of course, the Dallas Cowboys were going to be in the mix to sign Odell Beckham Jr. in his free agency. We are talking about the league’s biggest brand potentially aligning with one of the most well-known wide receivers in the game today. Beckham has already won a Super Bowl in his NFL career as a megastar, but he could still have some tread left on those tires after a major ACL injury.
Jones speaking with Beckham’s mother saying, “He’s somebody that I have the same kind of interest that I had in him during the season,” is very telling. The Cowboys owner loves stars, and Beckham certainly checks that box. Dallas should not have traded Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns last year when they were not sure how Michael Gallup would perform after his ACL injury.
Overall, this potential move feels so very predictable. The Cowboys are who we thought they were. Then again, the Los Angeles Rams getting Beckham midway through the 2021 campaign felt very predictable as well, and that team won a Super Bowl. Had he not torn his ACL, Beckham would have won Super Bowl 56 MVP over his former teammate Cooper Kupp. He was awesome that day.
You can criticize this potential partnership all you want, but you know what? It does feel like a fit.
