Mike McCarthy on trying to lure Odell Beckham: We’re moving full steam ahead


Odell Beckham will visit the Giants before the Cowboys. But no team has attracted a free-agent wide receiver as much as the Cowboys.

Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that the Cowboys’ interest has not waned since Beckham was removed from the plane on Sunday.

“Didn’t really participate in the conversation, but I know personally, based on my understanding, I think we’re moving full speed ahead,” McCarthy said via John Machot of TheAthletic.com.

Corner Deion Sanders was the last known free agent to sign a big deal with the Cowboys and make a lot of noise. Sanders helped the Cowboys win their third Super Bowl in four seasons in 1995.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Thanksgiving that “Odell can help us. I believe in it right now. Now we need to bring it into line, and this is the task.

cowboys have CD Lamb, Michael Gallup as well as Noah Brown as their top three strikeouts after losing Cedric Wilson in free agency and trading Amari Cooper at the Browns during the off-season.

Beckham tore his anterior cruciate ligament in Super Bowl LVI on February 13 and underwent surgery on February 22. It’s the same cruciate ligament he tore 16 months earlier.
