OBJ Next Team Odds: Five Contenders He's Most Likely to Land With
In a shocking turn of events, there’s drama surrounding Odell Beckahm Jr. The lightning rod wide receiver is looking for a new team after the Cleveland Browns cut ties with him at the end of last week making him available to sign with any team.
Before kickoff on Sunday Night Football, Mike Florio reported that Beckham prefers to become a free agent over going through waivers. He also noted that Odell would like to sign with Seattle and also adds San Francisco and New Orleans as teams to watch.
Here’s a look at the latest odds available, please note that they may have shifted after the news that Odell is looking for a contender.
Odell Beckham Jr Next Team Odds
To no surprise, all five of these teams are currently in a playoff spot. It only makes sense for a team that views themselves as a contender would look to add a player like this to their roster for the stretch run of the season.
The Raiders lost their leading wide receiver in Henry Ruggs III due to his drunk driving accident last week. As a result, they likely would like to add an explosive playmaker to complement tight end Darren Waller, Hunter Renfrow, and Bryan Edwards on the outside. If the Raiders are going to compete in a very difficult AFC and a strong AFC West division, an addition like Odell could be exactly what the doctor ordered on offense.
Odell Beckham would immediately be the best wide receiver on the Saints. With Michael Thomas out, they’ve been relying on Deonte Harris, Marquez Calloway, and Tre’Quan Smith at the position. Sure, the offense heavily features running back Alvin Kamara but adding a dynamic wideout should help Trevor Siemian on offense.
Bill Belichick loves himself some disgruntled wide receivers. Randy Moss, Chad Ochocinco, and Antonio Brown come to mind when thinking of former stars who tried to revive their career in New England. Can OBJ be the next one to do it? Jakobi Meyers and Kendrick Bourne have been okay at the wide receiver position but not nearly enough for them to shy away from a player like Odell.
Now this one would be fun. Mark Andrews is obviously the biggest threat in the passing game but the speed of Hollywood Brown and Odell in the same offense could open things up for Lamar Jackson even more so. Baltimore currently features the eighth-best passing attack, an OBJ addition could be enough to take them from a very good passing attack to a great passing attack.
The Buffalo Bills have one of the best rosters in the sport. Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders, and Cole Beasley make up a veteran receiving core that is already very good as is. OBJ would be a luxury at this point but if he’s looking to win a championship, there may not be a better bet in the sport than Buffalo.
