Odell Beckham has spent the last year trying to find a new team after tearing his ACL while playing for the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl.
Over that time, he has been linked with a number of teams around the NFL.
The Giants Cowboys, Bills, and Rams were all linked with him during the 2022 season, but with questions about when he would be ready to play again, none of those teams ended up bringing him in.
This offseason, the Patriots, Ravens and Jets all attended a workout Beckham Jr held in Arizona.
The Kansas City Chiefs have also recently been named as a team with interest in the receiver.
With all of these teams involved in Beckham’s free agency recruitment, there is bound to be one that signs him some time soon.
Now it looks like there is one team who stands out as an option for Odell.
According to SNY’s Connor Hughes, the New York Jets have “real interest” in Odell Beckham Jr.
Sources: #Jets interest in Odell Beckham Jr. described to me as “very real.”
He and Aaron Rodgers are close and have discussed playing together in New York. Basically, Rodgers wants OBJ.
With Elijah Moore gone .. opening is there.

The Jets traded Elijah Moore today, opening up a spot at wide receiver, but it is still a very crowded position for them.
They signed Mecole Hardman today and already had Garrett Wilson, Corey Davis, and Allen Lazard on the roster.
That doesn’t leave a ton of room for Beckham Jr to make an impact for them in the passing game.
If Aaron Rodgers wants Odell, it could be something the Jets just have to do, but they are already pretty invested in wide receivers.
Maybe the New York Jets are willing to overlook how little room they have at the position if it’ll make Rodgers happy.
