Odell Beckham Jr. to hold workout for NFL teams on Friday after missing season with ACL tear

Odell Beckham Jr. is still looking for a team after missing all of last year with an ACL tear and tense negotiations, but he could change that soon.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the former Los Angeles Rams wide receiver, who could sign with the team at any time, will lead the teams’ practice on Friday in Arizona. The New York Giants will be among the teams attending Jordan Rana of ESPN.

It has been 13 months since Beckham suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of Super Bowl LVI, though he later claimed to have torn his ACL long before. Beckham was interested in signing with the team for 2022 when he recovered, but the deal fell through.

At first, the Rams wanted him back. But wait, Beckham said they never offered him a deal in the offseason. Beckham then teased his interest in the Buffalo Bills. The Rams came back with an offer, but then he visited the Dallas Cowboys and also flirted with the Giants. This interest does not appear to have lasted long. And then Beckham said he didn’t see the point in playing in the regular season, except that he didn’t sign up for the playoffs either.

The common thread in all these unsuccessful negotiations and fun was, obviously, Beckham, who wanted much more than he was ever offered. Add to that the odd plane incident and you have a much talked about season that never happened.

Now, Beckham enters this offseason with a clean slate and with the hope that teams will value him more as he moves on from an ACL tear. Prior to this injury, Beckham’s tenure with the Rams was considered a big success story, with the former pro bowler posting 288 receiving yards and two touchdowns in 3.5 playoff games.
