1 Massive Reason Odell Beckham Jr. Should Sign With Cowboys

The Odell Beckham Jr. watch across the NFL is going to start heating up. He is reportedly going to receive full clearance later this week, which means that it won’t be long until we see him back on the field with a team. One of the most interested teams right now is the Dallas Cowboys.

Beckham is easily the best free agent remaining currently. Had he not torn his ACL while playing for the Los Angeles Rams in LVI, there is no doubt that he would be on a team right now. After a tumultuous stint with the Cleveland Browns, Beckham proved he had plenty left in the tank to offer a team with how he performed on the Rams.

Before injuring his knee in the Super Bowl, he had caught two passes for 52 yards and a touchdown. He was excellent throughout the postseason, catching 21 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns in four games as he was the perfect complement behind Cooper Kupp, picking up the slack with Robert Woods injuring his knee.

Despite being sidelined for as long as he has been, the market for Beckham is a robust one. There have been at least eight teams linked to him, which speaks volumes about the kind of impact teams believe he is capable of having when he returns to the field.

One of the teams that have been linked to him the most is the Dallas Cowboys. They saw some major changes to the wide receiver position this offseason as Amari Cooper was traded to the Browns and Cedrick Wilson Jr. signed with the Miami Dolphins. The team was able to re-sign Michael Gallup, but beyond him, there was no established talent outside of their new No. 1 receiver, CeeDee Lamb.

Lamb’s presence is what the Cowboys should use as a selling point when recruiting Beckham. While he isn’t in the same class as Kupp, he would provide Beckham the opportunity to ease into a role and not be relied upon as a savior or go-to option right out the gate. Just because he may gain full clearance doesn’t mean it won’t take time to knock off some rust.

The presence of Lamb, and Gallup to an extent, will allow Beckham to take his time acclimating himself to playing again. But, the opportunity would still be there for the former All-Pro to ascend into a massive role in what should be one of the most prolific passing offenses in the NFL led by Dak Prescott.

Dallas has a strong running game and star-studded defense, but the passing offense could use a jolt. Beckham would assuredly provide that, giving Prescott a safety blanket capable of making big plays at any time.

There are actually a lot of similarities that can be drawn from Beckham joining the Rams to landing with the Cowboys. Established receivers were present for both, but it wouldn’t hurt to add another experienced one behind them.

Dallas offers Odell Beckham Jr. everything he is seeking; the chance at an expanded role to parlay that into a lucrative contract in 2023 and the chance to compete for another Super Bowl. A strong case can be made by the Cowboys in their recruiting efforts against plenty of other interested teams.
