OBJ To Green Bay?

Odell Beckham is a free agent once again. According to multiple reports, the former LSU star is slated to visit the Miami Dolphins this week. The Green Bay Packers need to contact his camp and try to get a visit with him. He is not the elite player that he once was, but he can still get open with the best of them.

Now, Green Bay doesn’t have a pressing need at receiver. They have five quality receivers, including stud Jayden Reed and the reliable Romeo Doubs. However, teams sometimes like to enter the regular season with six receivers on the final roster, not five. The Packers should go get OBJ. Here is why:


No. 1 Wide Receiver Characteristics 

Beckham is 31 years old and hasn’t recorded a 1,000-yard season since 2019 in Cleveland, which was coincidentally his last full season. So, he’s not a Pro-Bowler anymore. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t still create a ton of space. In a run-first offense with the Ravens in 2023, the former All-Pro set a career-high in average yards per reception (16.1). Imagine if he was in an offense that threw the ball, like Matt LaFleur’s in Green Bay.

He has five career 1,000-yard seasons to his name and nearly 570 career receptions. He is a very dangerous player, even at 31 and fighting through injuries each of the last few years.


How He’d Fit In Green Bay

The former Super Bowl champion would need to put up 100 receptions for 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns. If he could pour in 50 to 60 receptions for 700 yards and five or six touchdowns, that would be solid. What makes the Packers so dangerous is that they don’t necessarily have a No. 1 wide receiver. They have a bunch of receivers that can do so many different things. Bringing in Beckham would be like bringing in an NBA player who can create his own shot, who isn’t afraid of the moment.

Also, Green Bay doesn’t have a receiver who has played over two seasons in the league. Beckham would bring experience and ability that the Packers wouldn’t mind having. A one-year deal worth $8 million makes total sense here.
