Odell Beckham to hold workout for teams

Odell Beckham visited the Cowboys, Giants and Bills during December, but the receiver declined to work out. That led to questions about whether he was fully healthy from the anterior cruciate ligament he tore in Super Bowl LVI on Feb. 13, 2022, and underwent surgery on Feb. 22, 2022.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports Beckham now is “100 percent.”

Beckham apparently intends to show that during an upcoming workout for scouts.

The NFL’s personnel notice included this nugget Thursday: “Please note that Ryan Willis, QB, Virginia Tech, who is currently under contract to the Memphis Showboats of the USFL, has been granted permission to throw at an upcoming workout for Odell Beckham.”

It does not indicate when or where the workout will take place.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said last week that he still has interest in signing Beckham.

Beckham is eligible to sign with any team at any time, having become a free agent in March 2022 without signing with a new team.

Beckham, 30, last played in 2021 and made 44 catches for 537 yards and five touchdowns in 14 games — six with the Browns and eight with the Rams. His last Pro Bowl came in 2016 and his last 1,000-yard season in 2019.

  1. No thanks hes washed. No team wants this guy, he was always overrated for one good catch 9 years ago

  2. OBJ and Aaron Rodgers could be a fun pairing somewhere … if there were a team and coach willing try it.

  3. He was well on his way to a Super Bowl MVP performance when is leg went out. There’s no reason to believe he can’t still perform at that level.

  4. This dude had Baker Mayfield trying to throw him passes. If they weren’t batted down they were off target. Then there’s all the times the little guy didn’t see him wide open. Dude really came in during the playoffs and was absolutely the SB MVP before his knee blew put. Good player with flashes.

  5. Really, who cares! Old, slow, and just had a brief glimmer in the last three years, mainly due to him being on a great team. TIME HAS PASSED ON ODELL!

  6. no way he plays a full season without getting hurt…that being said id like to see him in KC

    Except for the fact that his leg went out.

  8. He can complete a workout, thats good to hear. But can he complete a season? Despite all the great game film from his childhood days its been a while now, and a lot has happened. It’s been things that were his fault and things that were not and all of it adding up to questions on where he is at today. He’s likely going to need to bet on self and take a prove it contract.

  9. i would think he would workout as one of those players you pick up in week nine or 10 to help your playoff push or if/when one of your receivers go down.

  10. Boy oh boy. Does this guy need attention more than oxygen? Jerry Jones, another bird of the same plumage, is likely to be there in person.

  11. He’s got 2-3 years left in the tank, but no matter where he goes he’s going to have to take a team friendly deal, especially if it’s to a contender.

  12. >>He was well on his way to a Super Bowl MVP performance when is leg went out. There’s no reason to believe he can’t still perform at that level.

    Boy this post sure racked up a disproportionate amount of dislikes. Truth hurts

  13. Take those tacky gloves off and 0.00% chance Beckham makes the catch that made him famous. He might as well been wearing a few gallons of stickum. He NEVER makes that catch without those gloves. Beyond that one catch, he’s had a very unremarkable career. I don’t understand the interest him…but it proves once again that NY and LA control the media, control the narrative, if he had played in Tennessee, he’d be out of the league by now.

  14. He was done before the latest injury, it was just fake media spin that made him better than he actually was!

  15. Gotta love how he was trying to fleece teams into signing him for the playoffs and now it’s March and he’s finally ready to do a workout.

  16. The talk was about teams skipping the combine. In that light, do you send somebody to watch Odell’s workout? This guy is now a #3 receiver and he’s expecting teams to fly across the country to see him? If you’re interested you’re having him come to YOU, just like every other signing is handled.
