Odell Beckham Jr Odds: Top Five Landing Spots for OBJ

According to NFL insiders, the Cleveland Browns are planning on waiving Odell Beckham Jr. today, just days after the NFL trade deadline. The star wide receiver has been ‘excused’ from Browns practice all week, despite reports of him ‘wanting’ to be there.

Whether the 28 year old receiver is released today or not, what we do know is that the Browns can save $30 million over the next two years by moving on from him. There was a lot of buzz surrounding OBJ at the NFL trade deadline, but it seems his $15.75 million cap hit was too much for teams to make a solid offer. With this in mind, it wouldn’t be surprising to see OBJ fall through the waivers if released today – giving him the choice of which team he wants join.

Check out our 5 best landing spots for Odell Beckham Jr. below.

San Francisco 49ers

In 2019, when the Giants were looking to trade Odell Beckham Jr. the San Francisco 49ers were rumored to have a deal in place for the pro-bowl receiver. Unfortunately for the Niners, the Giants concluded that OBJ would be less of a threat in the AFC, and dealt him to the Cleveland Browns instead. The explosive offense of the 49ers could utilize Beckhams talents from day one, making him an integral part of a young, exciting offense and taking defensive attention away from Deebo Samuel.

New England Patriots

OBJ has been linked to the Patriots since his third year in the league, speaking highly of both Belichick and Robert Kraft on multiple occasions. The 4-4 Patriots seem to have found the heir-apparent in rookie Mac Jones, who is ranked the highest graded QB since week five, according to PFF. Despite his success, the Patriots are still without a solid WR1 and adding OBJ as another option for Mac Jones would help immediately. Also, the Patriots have a pretty good track record of turning around careers of ageing, under-producing receivers - I’m sure Belichick will find a way to bring Beckham to New England if that is his intention.

New Orleans Saints

According to Kimberly Martin, of ESPN, the Saints were supposedly close to making a trade-deal for Beckham prior to the NFL deadline but couldn’t come to an agreement regarding the cap-hit from is remaining salary. With Michael Thomas on the sidelines (and potentially finished as a Saint), New Orleans are in dire need of a new Wide Out. Born and raised in Baton Rouge, the Louisiana native Beckham could elect to return home for the rest of his career.

Las Vegas Raiders

The last thing we want to be doing is thinking of the football fallout in this Henry Ruggs situation, and our thoughts go out to the families involved in the incident. However, unfortunately for the Raiders, the 2021 NFL season continues to roll on, and they will continue without their WR1 in Henry Ruggs. Adding Odell Beckham to the Raiders offense would be an immediate jump-start to this group, and would help Las Vegas continue their play-off contention this year.

Baltimore Ravens

If Odell Beckham Jr. clears waivers and gets to choose his landing spot, the Baltimore Ravens could be the perfect option for him. The dynamic, playmaking ability of Lamar Jackson could open up Beckhams game, and at 28 years old you have to imagine Beckham is looking at Super Bowl contenders with more vigor. Marquise Brown, Sammy Watkins and Roshod Bateman are a solid receiving trio, but OBJ would add another level of playmaking ability – if Baltimore can find a starter role for Beckham within that trio, don’t be surprised if he rocks the Purple and Black for the rest of the season.
