Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has hinted that the chances of Odell Beckham Jr. signing with the Cowboys this season are fading. Earlier this month, Beckham visited with the Cowboys. Before the meeting, several Cowboys players openly recruited Beckham to Dallas.
But after Beckham visited with the Cowboys, the interest from the Cowboys appeared to cool off. During the visit, the Cowboys reportedly realized Beckham would not be ready to play until at least the playoffs. "As of this morning we don't have anything.
The reality is though that time is moving on down the road relative to playing in the playoffs and so every day diminishes our chances of going forward," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan.
Many believed Beckham would sign up with the Cowboys
Before the meeting, the Cowboys were showing major interest in Beckham.
But the Cowboys seemingly weren't too thrilled after realizing Beckham would not be ready to play until at least the postseason. When Beckham was asked about his availability, he said he "does not see a point in playing in the regular season." "I haven't made a decision, and for me, I would like to be in a stable environment, get up at 6 a.m., leave at 6 p.m.
for four weeks, and then let's talk about it. I've played football for a long time. I'm not saying that I couldn't step in and play regular season, but I don't see the point. I really don't. I would rather play when the pressure is on," Beckham said after visiting with the Cowboys.
This month, Beckham also visited with the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants. If nothing changes in the upcoming days, there is a good chance Beckham will opt to skip the entire season and then sign with a team after the season ends. It remains to be seen where will Beckham end up.
