This entire season it’s been a roller coaster attempting to determine where star WR Odell Beckham Jr. will land. However, in the past couple of weeks, it’s been rumored that it’s rapidly close to a decision being made between teams. Due to reports, there were several rumblings about Beckham and the Dallas Cowboys. Yet, they’ve not come to an agreement of any kind, which leads one to believe that it won’t be happening anytime soon.
Within the past weeks, Beckham and the Philadelphia Eagles rumors have begun to stir up, according to SB Nation. Ideally, this fit for the Eagles would only make them that much better. Their offense has proven to be explosive, yet, they can always use more consistency within their offense. Beckham will be an asset in any offense he steps in, however, he’s looking to be a factor and focal point within their scheme.

Most importantly, he wants to win a Super Bowl ring before he retires and the Eagles are proving to be favorites heading into the postseason. Beckham has met with three teams thus far, the Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, and the New York Giants.
Don’t be surprised if the Rams end up with Baker Mayfield.

Is OBJ a Goof Fit For the Philadelphia Eagles?
To be fair, on paper, OBJ may not be the greatest fit for the Eagles. Unfortunately, this will leave more questions than answers for the Eagles going forward. The passing game is dominant with A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith! Possibly, adding OBJ to the mix may force fewer pass attempts toward any of Eagles QB Jalen Hurts targets. Not to mention, the Eagles’ talented TE Dallas Goedert will be affected dramatically by this move.
Many are not considering the injury history and factors of OBJ either. Thinking big picture this may be more work to make this work than bargained for.
