Free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. seemingly likes the idea of joining Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
Beckham, who won a Super Bowl 56 championship with the Los Angeles Rams last season, is still recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered in the big game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The three-time Pro Bowler will surely be highly coveted by multiple teams when he receives the clearance to return. Let’s just say that judging by a couple of OBJ’s recent tweets, it’d be a good idea for the Packers to consider signing him.
Beckham praised Aaron Rodgers during the Packers-New England Patriots Week 4 game. And when sports reporter Chris Williamson told OBJ that he and Rodgers could do plenty of damage together, the soon-to-be 30-year-old wideout seemed to like the suggestion.
November has been reported as a potential return timeline for Beckham. That would mark nine months since he suffered the torn ACL in the Super Bowl.
Beckham was released by the Cleveland Browns in the midst of the 2021 season. Having lost standout receiver Robert Woods for the year with an ACL tear, the Rams tried to offset the damage by signing Beckham.
The move paid off tremendously for the Rams. Beckham became a key contributor in the Rams offense and served as a reliable No. 2 receiver to complement Cooper Kupp. Beckham had five touchdown receptions in just eight regular season games for the Rams after recording zero in six with the Browns.
Though the Packers are 3-1 on the year, the team could certainly use extra wide receiver help. With All-Pro wideout Davante Adams long gone, Aaron Rodgers has mostly leaned on rookie Romeo Doubs in the passing game.
Beckham would be an intriguing fit in Green Bay, but we’ll likely have to wait at least another month until we learn of his next destination. Stay tuned.
