NFL free agency: Jay Glazer says 49ers will be part of bid for Odell Beckham Jr.
During NFL FOX’s Sunday morning pregame broadcast, Jay Glazer reported that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. be released by the end of this week. Glazer added that there will be no cap and it’s just a matter of conditioning and determining which teams will be interested in his services.
Glazer added that there will be no cap and it’s just a matter of conditioning and determining which teams will be interested in his services:
“That’s probably going to be the team that can win the ring now. I know Von Miller is trying to get him to Buffalo. A team like San Francisco Dallas Cowboys, and he still loves the Rams. I think it’s going to be a big war for Odell.”
Buffalo’s leading receiver in targets is Stefon Diggs, with 80. Diggs is followed by Gabriel Davis with 37, and three other pass catchers with more than 25.
CeeDee Lamb leads Dallas in goals with 42. He is followed by Noah Brown with 25, and the only player with 20 is Dalton Schultz.
If Beckham decides to come to the Bay Area, he’ll have to find a way to take away touches from a group of pass catchers who already have too many mouths to feed. Brandon Aiyuk leads the team with 53 targets. Deebo Samuel, who missed the game, is right behind him with 53. George Kittle has 35, Jauan Jennings has 24, and that’s before we even get to Christian McCaffrey’s 11 targets in two games and Kyle Juszczyk’s involvement in the offense.
Trading Jennings and Ray-Ray McCloud’s 37 combined targets doesn’t seem like an apples-to-apples comparison, but it’s as close as we can get to where the targets for the “other” wide receiver would come from.
Last week, Kyle Shanahan was asked about the possibility of firing Beckham Jr. and said, “We’re open to talking to everybody. I’ve always been a fan of Odell.”
If I were Odell, I’d be hard-pressed to say no to Josh Allen and a pass-first offense like the Bills. Every team Glazer has listed has a chance to win Super Bowl. OBJ’s decision will tell us what means the most to him.
