Odell Beckham Jr. Could Return Soon – Who Would He Sign With?
Odel Beckham Jr. could soon sign with a team if he fully recovers from the knee injury he suffered at the end of last season.
Last year, Beckham Jr. was released by the Cleveland Browns – allowing the Los Angeles Rams to sign him.
The wide receiver played a pivotal role in helping the Rams win the Super Bowl last year.
In the postseason, Beckham Jr. posted 288 yards in receiving, along with touchdowns.

However, he suffered a torn ACL in the Super Bowl in February last year.
These types of injuries take between nine and 12 months to recover.
NFL insider Dan Graziano reports that Beckham Jr. won’t likely be healthy enough to play until mid-December.
Also, a team would likely want to work him out before signing him.
And there would only be a few weeks left in the season if Beckham Jr. signs during that timeframe.
So likewise, playoff or Super Bowl contending teams will be interested.
The teams in the NFL with the best records currently include the Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings.
All three to some degree could use Beckham Jr. for some depth and insurance.
They will of course hope that he will bring a similar impact as Beckham Jr. did with Rams last year.
Also, there’s the Kansas City Chiefs and Beckham Jr.’s former NFL team the New York Giants, which could be both interesting fits.
Both teams have just two losses on the season and could use another wide receiver.
Giants general manager Joe Schoen said on the Tiki and Tierney show that he’s been in contact with Beckham Jr.’s representatives.

The Giants, which rank 7th in the league in passes dropped, could especially use one.
It also recently traded wide receiver Kadarius Toney to the Chiefs
Also, teams with injuries could act.
For example, the 5-3 Baltimore Ravens will be without wide receiver Rashod Bateman for the remainder of the year, which was just revealed on Thursday.
Ravens’ HC John Harbaugh announced that WR Rashod Bateman will undergo season-ending foot surgery.

Recently, the Ravens signed DeSean Jackson, who could make his debut on Monday Night Football on November 7.
But keep in mind, Beckham Jr. may not play this year if he hasn’t fully recovered from his knee injury.
So it’s possible he may not sign anywhere until next year.
