Justin Jefferson told OBJ please don’t sign with Packers

As Odell Beckham Jr. continues to contemplate where he’ll sign as a free agent, there’s another former LSU receiver who would prefer any destination but Green Bay.

Minnesota’s Justin Jefferson said in his Thursday press conference that he told Beckham to please not sign with the Packers.

“I love Aaron Rodgers. I love Davante Adams,” Jefferson said, via Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune. “It would be a good mix for him, but I definitely don’t want to see it.”

Jefferson and Beckham are close because both played their college ball at LSU. Jefferson was one of the players to whom Beckham gave cold hard cash after the Tigers won the CFP national championship game in Jan. 2020.

As Jefferson pointed out, the Packers and Vikings still have to play two times this season. Their first matchup is in Week 11, which could be Beckham’s debut with whatever team he decides to join. The second won’t come until Week 17 when the Vikings head to Lambeau Field.

The Chiefs are currently the perceived favorite to sign Beckham. But the Packers, Seahawks, Saints, and Patriots are considered his other potential suitors.

  1. Jefferson should make the move so he can see what playing in playoff games is like.

  2. I remember when rivals hated each other! It’s a different type of player now, nothing but “Love” for their enemy.

  3. PLEASE have the Packers sign him. The drama would make another interesting sub-plot for the ‘Last Dance” documentary that will come out after this season, when The Packers end their 30 year HOF QB streak, and fade to anonymity in NFL.

    This year. Next year and beyond in Green Bay will be much more ‘Remember when’ we used make the playoffs a lot…Packer fans definitely got a glimpse of their future last weekend.

    The Packers are always a year away from falling apart. Y’all have been saying this since Favre first mulled retirement.

    And you sure are putting a lot of stock into Love’s first and only start. Shows a really strong football iq to be able to completely sum up a guy in one game. I’m guessing Rodgers’, Brady’s and Mahomme’s first starts were all MVP performances. Oh wait, they were crap too. It’s almost like it takes time and practice to be good. Hmmm…

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Wishing, hoping, and praying. We’re entering decade No.4 of predictions like this. Besides, it’s easier living with “remember when” than it is “will we ever.”

  7. For all the heat the Packers have taken for the 2020 draft, the only player who MIGHT, (AND I SAY MIGHT) have been in reach was Justin Jefferson. Just an excellent player who would have been a total fit. And they would have taken him. But Buffalo spoiled that by giving up a high pick for Stefan Diggs.

  8. As a Packers fan for 58 yrs i’m happy that cancer didn’t sign with us we already have a weird huge lying diva in GB it’s just not big enough for another.

    +++++

    Green Bay finished 1st in points and 5th in yards last season. And have gone 7-0 without Adams since that draft. So WR wasn’t really their biggest need, was it?

    Obviously would love to have Jefferson, Vikings picked a Winner there. But some would have had Green Bay trade up as far as they could to get Ruggs – yeah. Heck if Green Bay had stayed in place they could have taken …. Jeff Gladney.

    Draft hits and misses aside, the groupthink insisting Green Bay should have added a WR last year seems – to me – mistaken. And tired.

    I don’t know about Brady or Rodger’s 1st games, but Mahomme’s debut was a 4th quarter comeback win vs the Broncos – in Denver – and he played lights out, giving anyone watching some idea of what KC had in waiting behind Alex Smith.
