Free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is slated for a visit with the Cowboys after Thanksgiving and he’s been hearing from the guy who will be throwing him passes if he winds up signing in Dallas.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has already made it known that he’d like to see Beckham join the team and he told reporters on Tuesday that he’s “definitely sent some messages” to Beckham to make that clear.

“He knows how much I want him here, and a lot of the guys in this locker room have reached out on their own in different ways — to make sure he understands this is a team he can help. And we want him to come help,” Prescott said, via Patrik Walker of the Cowboys website.

Prescott said that there’s been “a little back-and-forth” that’s left him feeling there’s genuine interest on both sides.

“Mutual. Honestly, it’s mutual,” Prescott said. “That’s the reason I said it’s business. It’s more than just somebody’s feelings of wanting to be somewhere. I understand that will come into play, but I’m feeling like it’s mutual.”

Beckham is also expected to visit with the Giants and it doesn’t look like it will be long until there’s news about where he’ll be spending the final weeks of the 2022 season.

  1. I’m so over hearing about a guy that hasn’t been great in like 5yrs. And the Cowboys are being just as annoying with this level of thirst and desperation. The amount of coverage on a guy with multiple ACL tears is mind bending. This is gnna be the avg Odell game once he signs with a team: 3 catches 32 yards, and he will hundred percent not command double teams. All of you are straight up clowns with this social media clamoring

  2. “We really, really, really want the aging diva with injury issues!” – multiple teams, apparently

  3. Cowboys can sign David Beckman as well, still not beating Eagles or 49ers in the playoffs.

  4. OBJ is very close friends with Von Miller and the Bills are on a Super Bowl run. I’d be shocked if he doesn’t go to Buffalo. But, he still has a locker waiting for him in LA.

  5. Boy, I bet this really makes the Cowboys’ Current Wide Receivers feel all warm & fuzzy…..

  6. I’ve never witnessed such an insignificant player get this much attention. Can you imagine if Larry Fitzgerald wanted to be a narcissistic diva? More people should be like Larry Fitzgerald.

  7. Getting fed up with the cacophony coming from Dallas. Sign him or don’t sign him. Also, do people really think Dallas players saying I love you will be the reason for the signing? It’s going to be whether it makes financial sense for both parties.

    Talk about desperation!
    ——–
    I was thinking the same exact thing. Weren’t dallas fans talking about how they had the best wr group in the league just a couple months ago?. Multiple #1s??

  9. OBJ got hurt in the Super Bowl in FEB. Chris Godwin got the exact same injury 3 months earlier and he’s just now getting back in form

  10. OBJ will fit right in Dallas because his thoughts of being in game shape & ready to play are as delusional as Dak & Jerrah’s Super Bowl dream!

  11. The Cowboys are doing fine without him. Why does every team Beckham plays for get rid of him?

  12. Imagine the desperation it takes to fawn over a guy that may or may not be healthy when you consider yourself a true contender. Clearly they don’t actually or they wouldn’t be obsessing at this level. Him wanting a guaranteed second year all the sudden doesn’t raise any eyebrows in Dallas? I just want him to sign somewhere so I don’t have to hear about it anymore

  13. Shhh! That’s way too logical, this is a cowboys thread, reality doesn’t live here.

  14. Dak, how much do you want couple good O-Linemen? Oh, never mind…your expensive contract prevents that.

    Larry Fitzgerald also probably doesn’t voluntarily click on stories about Odell Beckham then cry about it. You should be more like Larry Fitzgerald.

  16. If Goodell helped us make it to the playoffs again this year, with Odell on the team we’d be smothered. But then, with our dismal record, we may not have to worry about playing them again this year.

  17. I wonder how healthy he is, at least in-game shape. Who knows if he can even contribute in time, he might not even get up to speed until playoffs. Unless I’m mistaken, but I’d have expected him to already be showing off workouts and tryouts and stuff, but I guess he’s trying to secure the bag first. Cowboys will be the one to overpay, but he got his ring already so I don’t blame him, get his last retirement money.

  18. All those WR’s who went through OTA’s and the preseason must love knowing their QB doesn’t have any more faith than that in their ability. I wonder if they think: if only you could throw as accurately as Cooper Rush we wouldn’t need OBJ

  19. Desperation? Players have been coveted by players, coaches and organizations since the beginning of sports. Now it’s called desperation. How about making your team better? Like when Brady sold his soul to get AB. Ok, maybe you have a point.

  20. This guy is the ultimate poster child for overhyped. He is not even that good anymore. All the headlines he is getting is a joke.

    With Odell they would have beaten the Vikings 54-3.

    Sad to see some of my followers jumping on the Dallas wagon as the wheels fall off ours. Coach McCarthy, please come back here, the fans and I miss you a lot.

  22. Wouldn’t you if you were a receiver on Dallas or Giants be upset your fellow players are drooling for someone else. “Oh are receivers are okay but they’re not you”. Ya gee thanks a lot.

  23. Everybody hates the Cowboys. Not America’s team and never has been. Go ahead and sign him he’s only had one good catch in years.
