The Odell Beckham Jr. watch is now in full effect in the NFL. The former Pro Bowler was recently given a clean bill of health and received a full clearance to return to football activities after tearing his ACL during the Super Bowl while playing for the Los Angeles Rams. Plenty of teams have been interested in signing him, including the New York Giants.

He is the best player remaining in free agency and he has no shortage of suitors. Nearly a third of the league has been linked to Beckham at one point or another as teams seek to bolster their roster heading into the stretch run of the season.

It was recently reported that Beckham has narrowed his choices down to two franchises; the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys. Beckham was a first-round pick of the Giants in 2014 and spent the first five seasons of his career with them before being traded to the Cleveland Browns. 

Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons has been recruiting Beckham via Twitter and the team could certainly use another weapon offensively to complement CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup. Beckham would provide an explosive third option for quarterback Dak Prescott.

People have been looking out for clues that may give a hint of what way Beckham may be leaning and he may have provided one on Twitter. It was announced that the turf at MetLife would be replaced with artificial grass this off-season. 

The playing surface has been a topic of discussion in recent weeks and a change at MetLife was pushed by Giants safety Julian Love. The announcement brought a very positive response from Beckham.

There is no explicit mention of joining the Giants, but reacting so positively to the change of the playing surface could be taken as a positive. Or, could it be that Beckham knows he will be taking the field at MetLife as a member of the Cowboys next season?

Whatever the motive behind such a response for Odell Beckham Jr. is, we should find out which team he will be joining soon. In addition to the Giants and Cowboys, the Buffalo Bills, Rams and Green Bay Packers have been mentioned often. The Baltimore Ravens would make a lot of sense as well given the season-ending injury to Rashod Bateman.
