Odell Beckham Jr. is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in the Super Bowl, but he could be back around the end of November or early December and ready to help a team on the field again. Assuming Beckham returns even close to his old form, he is the best free agent available and could be an immediate impact player for a contender down the stretch.

There are plenty of teams in desperate need of a wide receiver. The teams that have been most connected to Beckham in the rumor mill are the Los Angeles Rams, Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers and New York Giants.

Odell Beckham Jr. 49ers Rumors

The San Francisco 49ers might not need Beckham as much, but the chance to add a superstar talent like Beckham isn't something that 49ers GM John Lynch will ignore.

We never say no. We’re always looking to get better. And it’s a rarity you have a player of that ilk and some other names out there that still might be available.

Beckham joining San Francisco would be the cherry on top for a dynamic offense that recently added Christian McCaffrey. Beckham's free agency will be one of the NFL's biggest storylines in the coming weeks and it sounds like Lynch will have the 49ers right in the thick of it.

As things stand, San Francisco currently has the fourth-best Super Bowls on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds at +1300.
