Odell Beckham Jr. landing spots: Bills, Rams still headline most likely 2022 destinations

Odell Beckham Jr made headlines more than once while recovering from an ACL tear during last year’s Super Bowl. The veteran wide receiver remains unsigned for nearly a quarter of the 2022 season, but he attended the Rams’ championship ceremony ahead of Week 1, openly teased the future with several other teams on social media, and just this week visited the Giants facility visit an old teammate.

However, the question remains: where will Beckham play football next? After two ACL tears in as many seasons, the former professional bowler is unlikely to be ready before November. But here are the most logical landing spots when he:

6. Chargers

They have Super Bowl aspirations in a difficult division and while Justin Herbert may be posting MVP caliber numbers backing Mike Williams, Austin Eckeler and Gerald Everett, they could benefit from reinforcements later in the year as Keenan Allen is now battling a hamstring injury. that threatens to drag on. . This off-season, they’ve already done their best to build around Herbert, and Odell is already familiar with the Los Angeles market.

5. Leaders

General manager Brett Wych isn’t shy about considering any possible additions to help out Patrick Mahomes, who would certainly welcome Beckham’s quirkiness into his red zone creative packages. Kansas City was reportedly looking for him in 2021 as well. But other teams can – and probably will – offer a bigger role and pay because of how easily Mahomes incorporates the Chiefs’ current weapons, starting with Travis Kelsey.

4. Packers

If anyone needs the help of an experienced receiver, it’s Aaron Rodgers, who is doing his best to ensure that rookies Romeo Daubes and Christian Watson become reliable playmakers. The Packers have also targeted OBJ before, reportedly chasing him after his departure from the Browns in 2021, and they may use him even more this year, which could be Rodgers’ last. Meanwhile, Beckham was openly sucking up to the A-Rod’s passing accuracy.

3. Buccaneers

Tom Brady can – and will – hire anyone as the de facto general manager in Tampa, and his supporting cast has been toned down throughout the year. This is especially wide-ranging, with Chris Godwin, Russell Gage and Breshad Perryman battling injuries and Julio Jones proving to be downright unreliable due to his own stamina issues. Bucs is all in the game as long as TB12 is in the center and Beckham will surely get a chance to play with such a legendary QB.

2. Sheep

The mutual admiration between Odell and the Rams never wavered. Beckham remains a fan after lifting Lombardi in 2021 and he has built-in chemistry with Matthew Stafford. What’s more, Sean McVeigh’s offense could really have sparked with an injury to Van Jefferson and a sluggish Allen Robinson against Cooper Kupp. The only thing that could get in the way of a reunion is if L.A. won’t be able to stay in division hunting until he’s ready to dress.

1. Bills

If anyone is going to distract Beckham from another race in Los Angeles at the end of the year, it will almost certainly be the perennial Super Bowl favorites. Buffalo have lived up to their title claim, Josh Allen is one of the best playmakers, and defense leader Von Miller has repeatedly admitted that he and Beckham, a friend and training partner, discussed the composition of the team. Buffalo also have reasons to increase receiver depth, with Gabe Davis injured and Jamison Crowder indefinitely trailing Stephon Diggs.
