The NFL free agency period is beginning to cool down now that most of the top names have signed new contracts.
However, Odell Beckham Jr. remains a free agent and is not garnering interest from teams other than the Dallas Cowboys.
According to Jordan Schultz, the Kansas City Chiefs, and Baltimore Ravens are pursuing the star wide receiver.
Add the #Ravens and #Chiefs to the list of teams showing interest in Odell Beckham Jr., per sources. A couple more potentially as well, while the #Cowboys also remain interested. https://t.co/YPvP3GzWzN

Both teams are in need of a wide receiver, so it makes sense for them to at least talk to Beckham. The Chiefs would greatly benefit from having him on the roster with Patrick Mahomes throwing him the ball.
At the same time, the Ravens arguably have the worst wide receiver core in the league. So adding him would be a huge help, with or without Lamar Jackson.
We’ll have to wait and see what kind of contract Beckham signs, as he’s seeking a deal that would give him $15-$20 million a year, per Dianna Russini.
Update: Free-agent WR Odell Beckham is indeed seeking $15-$20 million a year contract, per @diannaESPN

After losing Juju Smith-Schuster to the New England Patriots, signing Odell Beckham Jr. would be a phenomenal addition to the Chiefs. Either way, the former superstar is more likely to be a strong second option no matter where he signs.
Keep an eye on this situation, as the Chiefs, Ravens, and Cowboys might just be in a bidding war to sign Beckham.
