NFL Rumors: New England Patriots are trying to sign Odell Beckham Jr

With Odell Beckham Jr now a free agent, his future has been highly discussed.

Shortly after his release, reports circulated that Beckham’s preferred destination is the Green Bay Packers. However, it looks like there is another team in the mix who wants Beckham’s services; the New England Patriots.

Beckham was initially put on waivers by the Cleveland Browns after he was released following a rather disappointing three-year tenure with the team. In six games for the Browns in 2021, Beckham had just 17 catches for 232 yards and no touchdowns.

Beckham though, went unclaimed and is now free to sign anywhere he chooses.

From the last tweet above, it sounds like the Patriots have either expressed interest and are waiting to hear back from Beckham, or they have made him an offer and are again, waiting to hear back from him.
