Rumors Link Ravens to Big-Name Free Agent Wide Receiver
After sharing a division with him for 2 1/2 seasons, the Baltimore Ravens are plenty familiar with Odell Beckham Jr. They'll be even more familiar with him, however, if they end up signing him in free agency.
According to NFL insider Jordan Schultz, the Ravens are one of several teams that have shown interest in Beckham this offseason along with the Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys and others.
Odell Beckham Jr. Rumors
OBJ could be a game-changer for Baltimore, who has had trouble finding quality receiving talent in the last few years. Acquiring him might help convince Lamar Jackson to stick around as well and would prove that the team is committed to helping him succeed.
Beckham missed all of 2022 after suffering a torn ACL in the Super Bowl, so he's looking to bounce back with a healthy 2023. The three-time Pro Bowler was one of the better wideouts in the NFL prior to his injury, however, which makes him an intriguing free-agent option this offseason.
Now 30, Beckham is reportedly seeking a multi-year contract. The Ravens are regarded as one of the league's smarter organizations, so they may opt to avoid such a risky deal for an aging player coming off an injury.
If they do acquire him, though, he could be the missing piece they need to finally get over the hump, similar to how he boosted the Los Angeles Rams to a championship after joining them two seasons ago.
