What a healthy Odell Beckham Jr. can bring to an offense

(Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports)

And speaking of ACLs… Odell Beckham is just about ready to return from the torn ACL he suffered in Super Bowl LVI. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, there are at least five teams in the running for Beckham’s services – the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, and San Francisco 49ers.All contending teams. If Beckham is to do what he did with the Los Angeles Rams last season – get signed in November and help his team to the Super Bowl – which team among these five (or another) gives him the best chance to do so? 

Doug: Wan’Dale Robinson and Sterling Shepard (both now out for the rest of the season with torn ACLs), Darius Slayton. Richie James. David Sills. Marcus Johnston. Kenny Golladay. That’s the receiver group for the New York Giants, who are 7-3 with an aggressive if vulnerable defense, and building the entire offensive plane out of Saquon Barkley. There is no other contending team more desperately in need of immediate help at the position than Big Blue, and if general manager Joe Schoen could initiate a reunion with Beckham, who the Giants selected with the 12th pick in the 2014 draft, he might be hailed as a conquering hero.

If Beckham is the same player he was with the Rams in the second half of the 2021 season, he might be better than every receiver on that roster combined. And with his ability to carry cornerbacks vertically, explode out of clearout concepts, and win in the red zone, he could very well be the piece that pushes the Giants over the top. 

Luke: I want the Giants reunion to happen, but if we’re talking about which landing spot gives him the best shot at another ring, I don’t think that’s what he’ll find back there. I don’t think he’d find it in San Francisco either. The other three teams have stellar quarterbacks, and wouldn’t need him to come in and immediately be the WR1, which the Giants absolutely would. Wherever he lands, it needs to be a place where he can make a handful of key plays every week, and especially in the playoffs, not be relied upon to play a full game of snaps and lead the team in targets. If I had my pick, it would be hard to choose anything over Mahomes and the Chiefs right now.
