Odell Beckham is asking for some big-time money to play next season.
Last year Beckham took a year off to recover from an ACL injury he suffered during the 2022 Super Bowl.
Earlier this week, Beckham worked out in front of NFL scouts from 12 teams in Arizona.
Teams represented at Odell Beckham Jr.'s private workout in Arizona today included the Panthers, Giants, Patriots, Rams, Cardinals, 49ers, Bills, Chiefs, Vikings, Browns and Ravens, per source.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Beckham impressed with his explosiveness and size.
Talked to a few people who attended Odell Beckham's workout. One noted how noticeably muscular Beckham looks now, likening him to a combination of Saquon Barkley and Deebo Samuel. Another said Beckham is simply a gifted athlete and that hasn't changed. Explosion was there.

According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Beckham is currently asking teams for $20 million a year.
At one point during the 2022 season, a report emerged that free-agent receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. wants $20 million per year. We’re told that Beckham still has that number in mind.
It’s hard to imagine it happening, without Beckham proving that he can play at a high level. He was indeed playing at a high level in the 2021 postseason, but he suffered a torn ACL in Super Bowl LVI. He likely needs to re-establish himself before he can get what he’s looking for.
