NFL Rumors: Green Bay Packers offer Odell Beckham Jr veteran’s minimum deal; Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints in the mix.

If anyone wondered if the Green Bay Packers had any interest in Odell Beckham Jr, they do.

In fact, they even responded with a contract offer for the 29-year-old troubled wide receiver, as they have reportedly offered him the veteran’s minimum.

The reason why they can’t offer him more is because they haven’t extended Davante Adams yet. But even so, the Packers have formally made an offer for Beckham.

With the Packers offer in place, the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints are also in the mix too, although it remains to be seen if they make any offer like the Packers did.

Now it becomes a waiting game, as Green Bay was Beckham’s preference and they did make him an offer. But will he accept it?
