Everyone is still waiting to see what ends up happening with Odell Beckham Jr. this offseason. After the NY Giants re-signed Darius Slayton and inked former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell Jr. to a new deal, it pretty much shut the door on general manager Joe Schoen giving OBJ a contract, right?
Who knows. Anything can happen this offseason and it sure looks like Beckham wouldn’t mind returning to his old stomping grounds and suiting up for Big Blue once again.
A back-and-forth between him and Saquon Barkley has a lot of fans talking, with Beckham telling Saquon to have Schoen call his agent. Fans are understandably going wild after seeing that tweet from the veteran wideout.
Could the NY Giants bring back Odell Beckham Jr. this offseason?
Beckham is back to full health from his torn ACL suffered in the Super Bowl two seasons ago. At his showcase in Arizona earlier this month, he was running at full speed and making some pretty epic one-handed grabs. He really looked like the Beckham of old. However, this is still a guy who missed the 2022 campaign due to his serious knee injury.
Not only that, but the Giants got things done with both Slayton and Campbell. Had the Giants not re-signed Slayton to a two-year deal, then we would have thought that there would have been a much stronger chance of Beckham returning to East Rutherford. Instead, it feels like he’ll be going elsewhere, with the Dallas Cowboys (unfortunately) looking like a good fit for him.
Big Blue nation would hate to see Beckham play for the Cowboys, but it could end up happening. In a perfect world, OBJ would don his No. 13 jersey for the Giants next season and look great playing with Daniel Jones, Barkley, Darren Waller and others.
At the end of the day, the Giants may not have the money to bring in Beckham, especially if he’s looking to make around $20 million a season. The thought of a reunion sounds amazing, but it might be time to give up on that dream.
