Quarterback Dak Prescott met with free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. when Beckham visited the Cowboys this week and he told reporters on Thursday that he thought “the visit went well.”

Beckham’s visit ended without a deal being struck, however, and reports have indicated that the Cowboys have concerns about Beckham’s ability to play less than a year after tearing his ACL. Linebacker Micah Parsons said that Beckham told him he’ll be ready to play in five weeks, but Prescott didn’t share any insight about when Beckham might be able to play.

He did say that he thinks Beckham would help the team while adding that he thinks the team has enough on hand to succeed if Beckham doesn’t come on board.

“If we get him, hell yeah it’s going to help. And if not, I’m confident in what we have,” Prescott said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

There’s been no word on when Beckham might come to a decision about his next team, but the injury issue means any call may wind up being moot for this season.

  1. Don’t see Dak willing to take a cut in pay, say $20 million a year, to pay for OBJ over the 2 or three years. Not-to-mention resigning Diggs and Lamb who will be in $25 million a year group starting next year.

  2. Agreed. I can’t think of a single way that Odell could be selfish or destructive for your locker room.

  3. Nobody is going to sign a ‘still recovering’ guy who isn’t even at 50% .

  4. HIs trusted driver who has correctly predicted every move he’s ever made in the NFL said no way is he going to Dallas and he’s going back home. Just waiting to heal up a bit more and hold out hope they’re still alive for a playoff spot going into the last two weeks of the year where he’ll join on. We don’t have a single WR that would start for any other team in the NFCE so he’ll be welcome with open arms even if he’s coming to us on one leg. That’s fine with me.

  5. Beckham won’t be playing this year so this talk means nothing. He won’t be signing a long term deal at the vet minimum and there is no reason to sign a short term deal.
    Wait until he’s healthy, work him out and then make your decision.

  6. WRs are a dime a dozen. If Beckham was worthy of keeping, all his previous teams wouldn’t have let him go. With a healthy Dak Prescott and a formidable defense, the Cowboys are as tough as anyone in the NFC.

  7. Dak needs all of the help he can get. You know when the pressure is on Dak folds up like a lawn chair. He’s the reason why the Cowboys have no shot at winning the super bowl.

  8. The collective delusion of the NFL and media on certain players is always fascinating, OBJ certainly make some great plays but he’s never been needed to win.
