Jets Appear Ready to Roll the Dice on Injury Prone Beckham
Swirling rumors for several weeks appear to be coming to a head in regards to the Jets pursuing oft-injured wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
I’m told free agent WR Odell Beckham Jr is planning to fly into the NY-area Sunday to meet with the #Jets Monday, per him.

Beckham may come at somewhat of a discount having missed all of last season due to injury, but exactly what the price is remains to be seen. He was rumored at one point to be seeking $20 million per year, which he denied. The price was then reportedly set at $15 million but we won’t know the actual price tag until a signing occurs. It does appear at the moment that the Jets are the front runner.
Last season’s absence was result of an ACL tear which was the second one Beckham has suffered. In 2020 he was forced to sit out the final nine games of the season after suffering his first ACL tear.
Beckham has also dealt with hip, hamstring, ankle and quad injuries over the course of his career but is rumored to be a favorite of incoming quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
