Despite visiting the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Buffalo Bills last week, Odell Beckham Jr. remains a free agent. The Cowboys and Bills even took it a step further and added other wide receivers in the time since, with T.Y. Hilton going to Dallas and Cole Beasley returning to Buffalo.

Even though Beckham remains unsigned, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says that doesn't mean Beckham to Dallas is dead. When asked about the Cowboys adding the star wideout, Jones said a decision would come "sooner rather than later." When pressed on the specifics, he followed that up with, "I don't want to talk about that, but stand by."

In the wake of Beckham's visits to the three teams, reports surfaced that there were some concerns about his health and that he may not see the field this year after suffering a torn ACL during the Super Bowl in February.

Earlier this week, additional reports came out that Beckham might be forgoing this season altogether to work on getting fully healthy and ready to go for the 2023 season. For his part, Beckham does not appear interested in playing in the regular season and appears to only be considering a return for the playoffs.

Wherever Beckham's health stands, it seems like it's not enough for Jones or the Cowboys to rule out signing him this season, at least according to what Jones is saying. They might still be willing to take a chance on him with the playoffs approaching, as Dallas is currently tied for the fourth-best Super Bowl odds on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
