Odell Beckham Jr. was supposed to be a saving grace for an NFL playoff contender seeking a big-time weapon on offense as the 2022 NFL betting season came to a close.
Instead, Beckham didn't agree to a deal with any team, and ultimately sat out the entire year. But his career is far from finished. Beckham isn’t without his detractors, but he also has undeniable talent, and he could really help a contending team in need of a passing-game boost for next season.
With free agency in full swing, Beckham worked out for a group of teams in Arizona, and reportedly impressed.
Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has updated his NFL odds for Odell Beckham Jr. and his 2023 team.

Odell Beckham Jr 2023 Team Odds
Odds are projected and do not reflect any odds that may be available at legal betting sites or betting apps.
Beckham caught 27 passes for 305 yards and five TDs in eight games as the No. 3 WR for the Rams in 2021, and had two receptions for 52 yards and a TD in the Super Bowl before a torn ACL ended his SB 56 experience and forced him to miss the entire 2022 season.
OBJ, 30, was cleared to play late in 2022 and made a few tour stops to meet potential teams. But various concerns kept pen from hitting paper.
A fresh offseason means another chance at a connection. A solid 11 teams showed up at Beckham's private workout in Arizona. Negotiations haven't started yet, but some teams need a WR more than others, some teams have more available cap space, and some teams have more aggressive management. That helps as we figure out where he could land.
Salary cap website Spotrac puts Beckham's Fair Market Value at $13.5 million for 2023. If that's the asking price, it likely eliminates four of the 11 teams that made the trip to Arizona for Beckham's workout. The Ravens, Rams, Vikings and 49ers are either above the cap or have less than half the space Beckham seeks in salary. Every team has multiple wants and needs, so it's unlikely they spend that much money on a potentially volatile talent like OBJ.
Those teams lead The Field in this market, because one never knows how teams will restructure deals to make other moves work.
When it comes to cap space and need, just one team has the perfect combination at this point in free agency. Improving at WR might be the No. 1 offseason priority of the New England Patriots, and at $15.5 million, they have the most cap space of any team that attended Beckham's workout.
While the Pats may have a leg up in that respect, other teams have ace cards to pull.
The New York Jets are all-in on acquiring Aaron Rodgers and competing at the highest level in 2023. They've already signed former Packers WR Allen Lazard. Rodgers also suggested the Jets bring in OBJ. That's probably good enough for the Jets to see if it's possible, given the cap space. Beckham showed a great deal of admiration for Rodgers last season, so it's likely he would relish the chance to play with him now.
Most of the New York Giants' receiving production in 2022 came from players who are now free agents. New York was heavily involved in OBJ talks last year though a deal never got done. Like the Pats, the Giants need a playmaker badly. Unlike the Pats, however, the Giants are near the cap ceiling ($4.2 million in available space).
The Kansas City Chiefs are sitting at $10.3 million and need to upgrade a depleted WR corps. Beckham is reportedly prioritizing playing with a great QB. KC and the Jets (if Rodgers gets traded) can clearly best make that claim.
The Buffalo Bills are the other team that's shown interest in Beckham with an elite QB and a relative need at WR. Cap space may prohibit a move for them.
Other teams that should be in the market for a veteran WR and have the money to make a fair-market deal include the Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, Los Angeles Chargers and New Orleans Saints.
The Chargers were a preferred destination for Beckham in 2022, so they could leap over the competition if real interest materializes from LA.
The Cleveland Browns just restructured the deal of QB Deshaun Watson, adding over $30 million in cap space in the process. Their cap number is $11.4 million, so presumably they can move things around, though would OBJ be open to returning after two drama-filled seasons?
The Panthers have the cap space and now have a void on the outside with D.J. Moore traded to the Bears (though they just added Adam Thielen from the Vikings). Carolina's QB for 2023 is TBD, but with ownership of the No. 1 overall pick, the Panthers will be led by one of the premier rookies from the NFL Draft.
The Packers are (likely) beginning the Jordan Love era. With a defense and run game that should be elite, Green Bay might be the closest of that bunch to compete on the grander scale.
