    Odell Beckham Jr. Free Agency Predictions: Landing Spots Include Ravens, Jets, and Giants

    After spending the last year in Baltimore, where will Odell Beckham Jr. play next season? Here are three potential landing spots in free agency.

    Published on

    Odell Beckham Jr. was once one of the most productive receivers in the league. Before turning 28 years old, Beckham had five seasons with over 1,000 yards and three with over 10 touchdowns between the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns.

    Beckham was then traded to the Los Angeles Rams in 2021. Though he won a Super Bowl ring and caught a touchdown in the game, he also tore his ACL, ending his 2022 season before he knew it.

    After taking a season off to recuperate from the injury, Beckham signed a one-year, $15 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens. His contract included a $13.835 million signing bonus. Beckham had 35 catches for 565 yards and three touchdowns with the Ravens in 2023. Here’s a look at which NFL teams could be potential fits for Beckham.

    A Return to New York

    The New York Jets are always an option, especially in a Super Bowl window. New York could pair Beckham with Garrett Wilson and depth receivers like Xavier Gipson and Jason Brownlee.

    With the expected return of Aaron Rodgers from an Achilles injury, Beckham has a strong chance to be productive. He would pretty easily be the team’s second-best option — barring a separate acquisition — and has the experience to earn the trust of his hypothetical veteran quarterback.

    Before he signed with the Ravens last offseason, Beckham thought he was going to sign with the Jets to play with Rodgers in New York.

    “In my heart, I was set to go back to New York and be a Jet,” said Beckham on the Punch Line Podcast.

    Reunited With the Giants?

    There were reports during the 2022 season that Beckham “would love” to return to the Giants. Two years later, New York still needs help at the wide receiver position, and Beckham has shown with the Ravens that he still can be productive and would be a boon for either Daniel Jones or an incoming rookie passer.

    The 31-year-old receiver played five seasons with the Giants, catching 390 passes for 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns.

    Beckham led the league in yards per game during his rookie season (108.8) and made catches on 70% of his targets in 2014. He was named the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2014 and is a three-time Pro Bowl selection — all with the Giants.

    Beckham Could Always Come Back to Baltimore

    Even if Baltimore opted to bring back Beckham, the team would still need receivers. The WR unit was improved by the additions of Beckham, Nelson Agholor, and rookie Zay Flowers.

    However, Flowers was involved in a domestic violence investigation over the offseason that has since been suspended by the Baltimore County Police. Baltimore is still continuing to assess the situation.

    Bringing Beckham back would solidify the group and bring back someone who is trusted in the locker room. However, the Ravens are often mocked receivers in mock drafts due to the passing offense’s inconsistencies.

    With Beckham’s dead cap hit set at $11,068,000 next season, per Spotrac, it’s a possibility that both sides come up with a solution on a multi-year deal.
