Here we are heading into Week 3 of the season and star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is still looking for a new team. After winning the Super Bowl with the Rams, OBJ has remained in free agency, still rehabbing his torn ACL, waiting for the right offer to come. Could a reunion with the New York Giants be in the cards?
This is something that has certainly been speculated. Earlier this week, a rumor spread, from a troll account on Twitter, like wildfire that Beckham would be open to signing with the Giants, but only if Daniel Jones is no longer the man running the offense. This raised plenty of eyebrows, but OBJ wasted no time taking to Twitter to let people know this simply is not true and to not believe the fake insider for a second.
Odell Beckham Jr. hasn’t ruled out a return to the NY Giants
Open and shut case here. While the G-Men are 2-0, there’s no denying that Jones hasn’t played to his abilities. He continues to upset NY fans with some of his poor decisions, but at the end of the day, Danny Dimes has done enough to help this team record close wins in back-to-back weeks.
Now, Jones will hope to help the team improve to 3-0 with a monster game against the Dallas Cowboys coming on Monday night. Beckham will be paying attention to that matchup, as he’s been following the Giants closely of late. OBJ hasn’t shied away from showing love to his former teammates, especially Saquon Barkley.
Beckham has loved seeing the hot start for Barkley, who is the NFL’s leader in rushing yards through the first two weeks of the campaign. Beckham himself will hope to have a big-time showing come Monday Night Football vs. Dallas. If Barkley can record a stellar performance, then 3-0 could become a reality for the Giants.
With Beckham, he’s still not at 100 percent from his knee injury, but you’ve got to figure he’ll end up inking a new deal sooner than later. Several teams will certainly be interested, but people all over NY and New Jersey will be hoping that a return to East Rutherford goes down.
We know for sure that if Jones remains the starter for the Giants, that won’t impact Beckham’s decision. He made that much clear with his tweet.
