Odell Beckham Jr. Meets With Giants – Bills & Cowboys Up Next
Odell Beckham Jr. could be getting closer to signing as he will continue to have dialogue with teams.
On Thursday, the 30-year-old wide receiver met with the New York Giants.
“We had dinner with Odell last night,” head coach Brian Daboll told the media Friday.
“We had a good visit. Other than that, I have nothing else to add.”

It’s unclear if he will have any other visits scheduled after that with other teams.
But the move comes as Beckham Jr. was cleared to play from a knee injury.
In the Super Bowl that took place in February, he suffered a torn ACL.
During the postseason run with the Los Angeles Rams, Beckham Jr. posted 288 yards in receiving, along with touchdowns.
In terms of team need, the Giants, who he was originally drafted by would make the most sense for Beckham Jr.
The Giants rank 4th in the league in passes dropped this year and could certainly use him.
But the Cowboys and the Bills would likely offer him the best chance to win and potentially make a deep playoff run.
The Giants have lost twice to the Cowboys this year and aren’t guaranteed to make the playoffs – given how tough the remainder of the schedule looks.
The Bills at the moment are in first place in its division with a 9-3 record.
The latest odds from DraftKings give the Bills the second-best odds to win the super bowl at +450.
Meanwhile, ESPN color commentator Troy Aikman seems fairly confident Beckham Jr. will pick the Cowboys.
“I think it happens,” he said.
“If I was betting, I would bet virtually everything I have on it.”
Aikman also said that if Cowboys owner Jerry Jones really wants a guy he usually gets him.
However, there might be a little bias from Aikman, who won three Super Bowl rings with the Cowboys as the quarterback.
It’s unclear what Beckham Jr.’s next contract will look like.
