Ken Dorsey: Odell Beckham Jr. would be a piece for an already really strong group

Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is making the rounds on his midseason free-agency tour, with his next stop salted to be Buffalo.

On Tuesday, Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey was asked if Beckham’s visit is due to a missing piece.

“I think the biggest thing is, obviously, he’s a heck of a player,” Dorsey said, via Henry McKenna of FOXSports.com. “But we feel like we’ve got a lot of great players on our team. And anytime you can create opportunities to create problems for defenses, you’re always looking at ways to do that — different ways to attack defenses whether it’s personnel or scheme. So that would be another part of that.

“But at the same time, we’ve really been so happy with the guys that are here [and] what they’re doing. [Beckham] would just be another piece to add to an already really strong group.”

Though Dorsey is in his first year as offensive coordinator, the Bills haven’t missed a beat after former play-caller Brian Daboll moved on to be the Giants head coach. Buffalo enters Week 14 No. 2 in yards and No. 3 in points scored.

But if the team could add Beckham and get production late in the regular season and the playoffs, it could be that little extra edge that puts the Bills over the top.

  1. Buffalo is my hometown. This isn’t Big D or the Big Apple.
    The lifestyle here is unlike anywhere in America.
    It’s very much like a big neighborhood. People know each other. People really care about each other’s wellbeing…Very tight, very unassuming and very loyal.

    I don’t know if this is what OBJ is looking for because there are no broadway lights or opportunities to self gloss..just friends and family who have each others back..always.
    It’s a very overlooked piece of heaven by the lake, where summers are a three month non stop party.

  2. This has gone on too long. I don’t care anymore. They already brought John Brown back; I’d rather resign Cole Beasley out of retirement.

  3. I don’t understand all the hype about OBJ and his seemingly arrogance about whether he will workout or not for interested teams. Yes, he is a great athlete but he hasn’t really shown elite WR numbers since 2016.

  4. I’m not sure why any team would want to pay OBJ millions to soak in their hot tub for five weeks.

  5. The Cowboys don’t need OBJ!!. With the current roster and players that they have is legit. IE: TE’S, RB’S, WR’S TO INCLUDE KAVONTE TURPIN IF GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY AND CHANCE TO GET SOME REPS IN THE OFFENSE. All the recruitments and publicity about OBJ, is just an overreaction and a waste of time. He has not worked out physically or shown that he’s ready to contribute and be an elite player, it’s all talk and no action deal. There’s only 5 games left in the regular season, and he will not be factor on any team.

  6. Gabe Davis is a good receiver that has a knack of coming through in big games, but has likely hit his ceiling when it comes to production. His catch percentage has gone down in each of his three years in Buffalo, with a 56.5% in 2020, 55.6% in 2021 and 52.2% in 2022, which is not good enough for a #2 receiver. Diggs is catching 71.7% of his passes this year and McKenzie has brought in 70% for 2022. Davis is the weak link in production, so Beckham Jr would give Allen the reliable source needed to bring this offense to another level… a Superbowl caliber offense. Problem is, OBJ might be looking for the bigger contract over another ring.

  7. 9 months removed from the second tear of the same ACL, wrong side of 30, recently managed to get himself thrown off of a commercial flight. There might be interest if he was willing to take a vet’s minimum with a signing bonus, but a long term deal when no one knows if he can still play? Even Jerry Jones isn’t THAT dumb.

  8. OBJ will NOT play this season or this post season – per Jerry Jones he appears physically unable & for the teams interested that have invited him are only just “kicking the tires”. The question from the fans for their respective team GM’s would be WHY? He cannot contribute this season so WHY sign him when the salary that OBJ will be seeking could help with re-signing current players.

  9. I feel that when he does come back, in time for the playoffs, he will need to get up to game speed/shape. By then it could be too late for this year. If he wants more money/longevity in a contract, he is going to have to work out/prove it.
    It would do him good to wait until after the draft to maximize his earning.
    No one should pay him what he wants right now.
