Odell Beckham Jr. has played in the NFL for eight seasons, but is still a free agent nearly halfway through the 2022-23 season. There are a few teams that he could end up with, including the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, and Green Bay Packers.

Analyst Marcus Spears tagged Beckham Jr. in a tweet predicting five teams he could play for, including the Chiefs. Beckham Jr. responded by saying, "we see eye to eye."

The Chiefs lost All-Pro wideout Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins via trade this free agency but added JuJu Smith Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Sky Moore in the off-season. Adding Beckham Jr. after they acquired Kadarius Toney would give them a very unique and loaded wide receiver group.

OBJ was drafted in the first-round of the 2014 NFL draft by the New York Giants at pick number 12 overall.


Beckham Jr. spent the first five seasons in the NFL with the Giants and recorded four 1,000-yard plus seasons while winning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, making three Pro Bowls and two All-Pro teams.


On March 13, 2019, Beckham was traded to the Cleveland Browns, along with defensive lineman Olivier Vernon, in exchange for Jabrill Peppers, Kevin Zeitler, and the Browns' first- and third-round picks in the 2019 draft.

He spent two-and-a-half seasons in Cleveland, recording a 1,000-yard season in his first season with the team in 2019. Halfway through the 2021 season, he was released by the team and joined the Los Angeles Rams.

@JKBOGEN @PatHalas2 @Btkyankee1 @BuiltInBuffalo_ LA knows where I wanted to be… but they didn’t offer me…. ANYthing! So idk what people want me to do, I def kno my worth and what the offer was isn’t reflective of that. So it’s tough to say that I can come on back even tho I thought I finally found that home !

While it seems like he might have welcomed a return back to LA, he took to Twitter a few weeks ago to talk about how they offered him a low-value contract for this season. He didn't seem happy about it.

As a result, a return to Rams seems highly improbable, if not impossible. This opens up the route to the Chiefs. Whether the trade materializes or not remains to be seen. The November 1 deadline for trade is approaching and whatever has to be done, needs to be done quickly.
