With free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. nearing a return to the field from a torn ACL, teams around the NFL have begun to express their interest in him.

The Dallas Cowboys are one such team, as team owner Jerry Jones really wants to see OBJ in Dallas based on his latest comments.

Odell Beckham Jr. Rumors

Jones has always had an affinity for star players, sometimes to the detriment of his team. His desire for Beckham seems warranted, however, based on the boost Beckham gave the Los Angeles Rams last year en route to a Super Bowl championship.

The outspoken owner would certainly love it if Beckham had a similar impact on the Cowboys, who haven't won a Super Bowl since the 1995 campaign. Jones has spent tons of money trying to help Dallas bring home another championship, albeit to no effect.

Beckham would fit nicely into the Cowboys' passing attack, giving Dak Prescott another legitimate weapon and helping offset the offseason loss of Amari Cooper. The three-time Pro Bowler would be a great complement to CeeDee Lamb, similar to how he was a perfect No. 2 option behind Cooper Kupp in Los Angeles.

With so many teams showing interest in Beckham, he'll likely have his choice of where he wants to play. Dallas is an attractive landing spot at the moment with a 6-2 record and the sixth-best Super Bowl odds (+1300) on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds heading into Week 10.
