Let's Set Odds: Where Will Odell Beckham Jr. Play Next?

The Odell Beckham Jr. experience was a short-lived one in the city of Cleveland.

Two and a half years in, all Browns fans have to remember in 29 total games is 114 total catches on 1,586 yards with seven touchdowns. To put that in perspective, in his rookie season with the New York Giants, Beckham caught 91 passes for 1,305 yards with 12 touchdowns, averaging 108.8 yards-per-game. And that was only in 12 games played.

Now, the Browns are officially moving on from Beckham Jr, releasing him Friday morning which breathes new life into #FreeOBJ movement on social media. At just 29 years old today, Beckham will need to clear waivers before having the freedom to sign with a team of his choosing.

Beckham still has a cap hit of $30 million for the next two years on his contract, including about half of that for the remainder of the 2021 season, so the asking price is still somewhat exorbitant. But if every team passes, who is most likely to pick him up?

Let's set the odds...

Odds for Odell Beckham's Next Team

New Orleans Saints +225

The Saints have a Super Bowl caliber defense and with some combination of Trevor Siemian and Taysom Hill running the show, they could absolutely use a No. 1 receiver to add to their run-first offense. Sean Payton has a history of offensive success in the league and could be an enticing option for Beckham to be the top dog right from the get-go.

I get why New Orleans would be a favorite, but if Beckham has had his issues with Eli Manning and now Baker Mayfield, I can't envision a scenario where he's sold on backup quarterbacks tossing him the football with a chance to get a new contract next year.

Green Bay Packers +300

The Packers make the most sense, and GM Brian Gutekust can finally get his star quarterback the receiver help he's been asking for years. OBJ and Davante Adams would be unstoppable with Rodgers at quarterback (assuming he's recovered from COVID-19), and would help solidify Green Bay as the top team in the NFC.

Ultimately, I also wouldn't invest in this favorite, despite it making the most amount of sense. Green Bay tends to be very cautious when it comes to signing players who have had difficulties elsewhere. Plus, Beckham likes to be in larger markets and Green Bay is as small as it gets.

Las Vegas Raiders +375

With the release of Henry Ruggs III following his DUI charge from a fatal accident that killed a 23-year old woman and her pet, the Raiders are looking for further help at the position. Beckham Jr. has the ability to still stretch the field, similar to Ruggs, but also make plays all over the field as a true number one.

Having him along with Darren Waller could be a tremendous boost for Derek Carr as the Raiders sit atop the AFC West division.

Los Angeles Rams +500

Imagine Robert Woods and OBJ on the outside, with Cooper Kupp in the slot. Would anyone be able to slow down the Rams with Matthew Stafford at quarterback?

Los Angeles is already all-in with their recent trade for Von Miller, so why not roll the dice at receiver as well?

Baltimore Ravens +600

The Ravens remain the favorite in the AFC North division, and are still looking for more receiver help alongside Hollywood Brown and the recovering rookie Rashod Bateman. Sammy Watkins was brought in at the beginning of the season but he's missed several weeks due to injury.

With Beckham available as a key possession receiver, it makes someone like Brown even more dangerous downfield without corners or safeties available to double-cover him. It would also make for a very run revenge narrative for the season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +800

Tom Brady already rescued Antonio Brown from the Raiders a season ago. Could he do the same for OBJ and plug him right into their offense?

Kansas City Chiefs +1000

After Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, the Chiefs still cannot seem to find another strong secondary option in the passing game. Andy Reid has never been shy about taking chances on players like Beckham Jr. who have found themselves in rough patches with their previous teams.
