The Bills are obviously in that group. So are the Cowboys, with more bells and whistles. The Buccaneers bring the chance to play with (Tom) Brady, and Tampa Bay has looked like it’s on the come-up the past two weeks. The Packers, with Aaron Rodgers, and improving young receivers, could have similar upside. The 49ers would bring championship opportunities and probably a lot of single coverage. Going to the Ravens could prove his ability to be a difference-maker, given their dire receiver situation. The Giants have a lot of wins and nostalgia. I don’t think it’ll be the easiest call. There should be plenty of opportunities for him. But give me the Cowboys just because I know Jerry Jones loves him some sizzle.
The Cowboys aren’t hiding the fact they covet Beckham. Especially owner Jerry Jones, who’s been open about how much his team would love to add the free-agent wide receiver. Here’s what Jones said this week on 105.3 The Fan, via Patrik Walker of the team website:
“A talent like Beckham is additive. It stacks on top of — we think a lot of what CeeDee [Lamb] is capable of being for this team. Beckham is really [about] can he get us substantively above where we are? The answer is: We’ll see how that is.”

“Odell is someone that we have all the appreciation in the world for what he is as a competitor. I know the Cowboys star on that helmet when he puts it on could look pretty good.”
