The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys are set to square off on Thanksgiving Day in a key NFC East showdown. After, they’ll be doing so again, off the field, as each is set to meet with star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., according to NFL Media.
Beckham will visit with the Cowboys on Monday, Dec. 5, according to Jay Glazer. As for the Giants, they still reportedly have yet to nail down a date. According to NFL Media, these are the only known visits scheduled for Beckham, but it’s entirely possible he could take further visits before signing with a team.
Beckham, 30, did pay a visit to the Giants’ facility early last month to check on former teammate Sterling Shepard after Shepard’s ACL tear, but did not meet with anyone in management. This time around, the visit is planned, and what seemed like an improbable reunion with the franchise that selected him 12th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft is now a possibility.
OBJ is in the final stages of recovery from knee surgery after re-tearing his left ACL in the Rams’ Super Bowl LVI victory in February. He looks to be in great shape and seems ready to give a contending team a shot in the arm for the stretch run just as he did for Los Angeles last season when he was seemingly on his way to winning MVP in the Super Bowl before going down with the injury.
The Cowboys have made it clear they are interested in the wide receiver. Owner Jerry Jones loves collecting stars to wear the “star” on their helmet.
“He made the greatest catch I’ve seen, other than the one Dez (Bryant) made for the touchdown against Green Bay,” Jones said to 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, via Sports Illustrated last last month. “Bottom line is, Odell is a player that I admire a lot.”
Jones confirmed the report that Beckham and the Cowboys are planning to meet soon.
“That’s my understanding, too,” Jones said on 103.5 The Fan on Sunday, via The Athletic.
