Odell Beckham Jr. is expected to wait until after Thanksgiving to pick a new home, league sources told ESPN, although talks are already underway with teams and offers are pouring in for the free-agent wide receiver.
Talks are expected to heat up after Thanksgiving, but before agreeing to a deal with a team, Beckham will consider making some free-agent visits to get a close look at a new potential home, sources say.
No team has expressed a greater interest in Beckham than the Dallas Cowboys. From team owner and general manager Jerry Jones to players like Micah Parsons, the Cowboys have almost universally championed Beckham’s coming to Dallas.
Beckham is expected to seek a deal that pays him pro-rata similar to deals signed last offseason by other wide receivers like Chris Godwin and Mike Williams, each of whom averages $20 million a year. If Beckham played the final quarter of the season at similar pay splits to Godwin or Williams, he could make about $5 million for the rest of that season.
Teams believed to be in the mix for Beckham include the Cowboys, New York Giants, Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers.
Teams that likely fell out of the discussion because of their struggles this season include the Los Angeles Rams and the Green Bay Packers.
