Odell Beckham Jr. 'most likely' to end up with Jets
by | VIEW 182
ESPN's NFL insider Dan Graziano is reporting that the New York Jets are "the most likely landing spot" for Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham, who missed out the entire 2022 season after suffering a torn ACL injury in the Super Bowl LVI, stopped by the 2023 NFL annual meeting in Phoenix.
During his time in Phoenix, Beckham talked with the Jets brass. "Odell Beckham Jr. has offers on the table from multiple teams, and I am told the Jets are the most likely landing spot but that Beckham could be waiting to make sure the Aaron Rodgers deal gets completed before finalizing his own decision.
Baltimore has made a push for Beckham as well," Graziano wrote for ESPN.
The Jets aim to land Beckham, Aaron Rodgers
Nearly three weeks ago, Rodgers announced to the public that his intention was to play for the Jets. But Rodgers is still on the Green Bay Packers roster as the Packers and Jets have yet to agree on a trade deal for the former NFL MVP.
However, Graziano is reporting that per his understanding, there is no doubt that Rodgers will eventually be traded to the Jets. "One of my sources acknowledged that the April 27 draft is a key date but also said they don't expect it to take that long.
I found literally no one on either side of this who believes it won't happen. I am confident that Rodgers will be the Jets' quarterback in 2023, and I feel strongly that a deal that doesn't involve the Jets' 2023 first-rounder will be finalized before this year's draft," Graziano wrote.
After Rodgers made public his intention to play for the Jets, there were reports indicating that he wanted the Jets to also sign free agent wide receiver Beckham. Also, there were reports about Beckham being interested in playing again in New York. It remains to be seen if the Jets will indeed land both Rodgers and Beckham.
