Easily the biggest storyline of Week 9 has been the fallout between the Cleveland Browns and Odell Beckham Jr., which has culminated in Beckham's release.

Plenty of teams will be interested in the services of a once-superstar WR, and Minnesota Vikings players are clearly interested in currying some favor with Beckham.

Both Justin Jefferson and Cameron Dantzler are rocking "Free Odell" sweatshirts during warmups before Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Jefferson is an LSU alum, like OBJ, but the two never overlapped as teammates. Dantzler is from Louisiana, but again doesn't seem to have any other connections to Beckham.

This could just be the players showing their support, but it's not a stretch to think they may also be trying to recruit Beckham. He had some obvious issues with the Browns organization, but the intrigue of adding him to a receiving corps that already includes Jefferson and Adam Thielen is hard to resist.

Whatever Beckham's future, we're sure to know by early next week when he clears waivers.
