After weeks of hyping the possible signing of receiver Odell Beckham Jr., the NFL’s ultimate carnival barker is acknowledging that the show will continue to go on in Dallas without OBJ.

Appearing on 105.3 The Fan, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expressed pessimism that Beckham will be added to the team during the 2022 season.

“That time is moving on down the road relative to playing in the playoffs, so every day diminishes our chances of going forward,” Jones said, via Todd Archer of

Beckham has visited the Cowboys, Bills, and Giants. He apparently wanted to leverage potentially playing in the postseason into a longer-term deal. That hasn’t worked.

He’s likely at this point to wait until 2023 to sign. The question becomes whether he’ll be happy with the offers he gets then — and whether he’ll accept one of them or continue to wait.

  1. Who care – big mouth owner and possibly an above average 30+ year old WR coming off another major injury. Too much energy wasted on these guys vs other players that have better stories.

  2. Beckham was recently at a Phoenix Suns game. I don’t know why he’s hanging out in Phoenix if he’s not sniffing around the Cardinals. Maybe D-Hop is quietly lobbying for him to come there.

  3. Just an update. The league would not approve placing Beckham on IR if he passes a physical. Per league source, he must remain on active roster once a player passes a physical. Only a new injury would allow them to shady IR him. The league will void the contract imo if Dallas tries this and the PA wouldn’t be happy either.

  4. The Giants wanted to put him on the practice squad until he’s ready to play. This makes more sense than IR which Jerry Jones talked about.

    The Cardinals could be legit option if Murray comes back healthy. I think Beckham is just having fun being a free agent. I’m surprised he didn’t show up at the world cup.

    It seems to be, The Giants would have signed him already if they could meet his asking price. The Cowboys would have signed him for his asking price but Jerry has been burned too many times and wants everything his way with big name deals. The Bills are totally out.
