Odell Beckham Jr. may have had to leave the game due to a knee injury, but he still played a crucial part in the Los Angeles Rams' Super Bowl victory. The veteran wide receiver became a go-to target on offense and now heads into the offseason as a free agent looking for a team to call home.

The 29-year-old's resurgence in LA should make him a hot commodity for NFL teams in search of an upgrade at the WR position. With that in mind, here are three of the most likely destinations for Beckham in free agency.

Odell Beckham Jr. Free Agency

1. Los Angeles Rams

Of course, staying with the Rams makes a lot of sense for Beckham. He fit in well playing alongside Cooper Kupp and became a reliable target for quarterback Matthew Stafford almost immediately. The three-time Pro Bowler hauled in 7 touchdowns across 11 starts with the team and averaged 3.4 receptions per game. Beckham has been vocal about his want to play for winning organizations and it doesn't get any better than hoisting a Lombardi Trophy. Los Angeles doesn't exactly have a ton of cap space to work with this offseason, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Beckham take less money to stay in the city that helped him accomplish his ultimate goal.

2. Green Bay Packers

Recent reports claim that the Packers are ready to go "all-in" to keep reigning MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers around. Re-signing Davante Adams and adding Beckham to the mix would certainly be a positive start. Green Bay has long been in need of an exciting No. 2 WR and Allen Lazard as well as Marquez Valdes-Scantling are both set to hit the free agent market. The only problem here is that the Packers' projected cap space is one of the lowest in the NFL. If anything, this would likely have to be a short-term deal for Beckham. It's hard to see him passing up an opportunity to play with one of the best QBs in the league, though.

3. Las Vegas Raiders

Unlike the other two destinations, the Raiders are going to have money to spend this offseason. Las Vegas can give Beckham the big contract he is likely looking for in order to surround quarterback Derek Carr with talented playmakers. It's not like the Raiders are a rebuilding team, either. They made the playoffs last season despite only rostering one WR that posted over 600 yards (Hunter Renfrow). Las Vegas was a rumored landing spot for Beckham during the season and should be in talks once again in the coming months. Each of the last two Super Bowl winners played the big game on their home turf and Super Bowl LVII will take place at Allegiant Stadium. That's quite a selling point.
