Over the last year, there have been reports about quite a few different teams being interested in landing Odell Beckham Jr once he was able to return from the ACL tear he suffered in last year’s Super Bowl.
Early in the year, the Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams were the popular choices to land the former Pro Bowl receiver.
Over the course of the season, the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys joined the conversation.
Despite the multiple interested teams, Beckham Jr never ended up being signed during the 2022 season because of uncertainty about his injury recovery.
He isn’t expected to have the same issue during the 2023 offseason.
He is reportedly back to 100% and he is already hosting a workout today in Arizona.
That workout appears to have attracted interest from a few teams that weren’t in the mix during the season.
According to NFL insider Josina Anderson, the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens will be in attendance at the workout.
There's at least one team very interested that's not going. Only because they feel they already know of their interest & where he's at.
So presence or absence of team reps won't be the entire indication. https://t.co/EHh8HKh5G2

The wide receiver needs of the Patriots and Ravens are well-documented.
The Patriots have one of the worst groups of pass catchers in the league and it would get worse if Jakobi Meyers leaves in free agency.
Last season was supposed to be the breakout year for Rashod Bateman, but he spent much of the year injured and Devin Duvernay eventually followed him to the injured list.
The Jets have young talent in their receiver group with Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore, but Odell Beckham Jr would give the group some experience and another proven talent.
Odell Beckham Jr’s market already appears to be heating up and things could get really interesting if he can prove he’s healthy this offseason.
