After all the recruiting, after all the quotes delivered by Jerry Jones, Micah Parsons and others, it now feels like Odell Beckham Jr. signing with the Dallas Cowboys isn’t going to end up happening. On Monday, the Cowboys were able to finalize a deal with a veteran wideout, but it wasn’t Beckham, it was T.Y. Hilton.
That’s not the move people in Arlington were expecting, but Jones decided to act fast before anyone beat him to the punch with Hilton. While that signing makes sense for Dallas, this could prove to be good news for the NY Giants, with so many fans holding out hope No. 13 makes his way home.
Dallas Cowboys sign T.Y. Hilton first before making a move for Odell Beckham Jr.
With Beckham not expected to be ready for at least a month, Dallas decided they didn’t want to wait and made a move to bring in Hilton. Yeah, Hilton is 33, but the dude can still fly down the field. With that said, this really does feel like it helps NY’s chances of signing Beckham. However, maybe Dallas isn’t throwing in the towel just yet:
This continues to be a mess between Dallas and Beckham, so people shouldn’t expect this to go down. For the Giants, they’ve gone 1-3-1 in their last five games and the Big Blue supporters are getting desperate for some good news to arrive. Enter OBJ?
With the Cowboys putting Beckham on the backburner, now would be the right time for general manager Joe Schoen to increase his efforts in having Beckham put the pen to paper. The Giants are still in the hunt to make the playoffs, and having the services of Beckham would sure help out Daniel Jones and the aerial attack if they to keep playing past Week 18.
Buffalo Bills sign wide receiver Cole Beasley
In a bit of a stunner, the Bills also made a splash on Tuesday morning, bringing Cole Beasley out of retirement and inking him to a new deal. Who in the world saw this coming? Buffalo was also in the race for Beckham, but this latest news on Beasley sure is telling. Sean McDermott clearly wants someone who can ball out for Josh Allen as soon as possible.
With Beckham, he’s not going to be able to make noise until the playoffs, but he’s going to be ready to produce for his next team of choice in a big way come the start of 2023 – don’t forget about that. The Giants really, really need some wide receiver help as soon as possible and for the future. They must make Beckham a priority – it’s clear Dallas and Buffalo won’t.
