Odell Beckham Jr. remains unable to play this season and hasn't been signed by a team. He's recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in the Super Bowl. Despite having no contract, the former Los Angeles Rams wideout has suitors.

An NFL insider believes that a new team is in contention to sign Beckham Jr. According to Heavy, who quoted NFL analyst Ian Rapoport, the Buffalo Bills are a real contender to acquire the former Giants receiver's services.

The Bucs, Packers, and Chiefs have are also reportedly in the mix. Beckham Jr. was also reportedly in the building with the New York Giants, signaling a potential reunion there, so they can't be ruled out, either.

The wide receiver is looking at a mid-November return.


That would make him available past the trade deadline, so any wide receiver-needy team or genuine contender could look at him then.

Where does Odell Beckham Jr. fit in with those teams?

The star wide receiver would be useful to any team. The Green Bay Packers are desperate for wide receiver help this year, so he would fit right in as the potential top player on the depth chart.

That can also be said for the Kansas City Chiefs, though their wide receiver room is not as dire. They don't have a true top wideout sans Tyreek Hill, so Beckham Jr. might be the top target in the wide receiver room there, too.


The Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are different stories. Both teams have exceptional wide receiver corps. The Buccaneers are helmed by Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones, and the former LSU product would be consigned to being fourth choice.

The Bills have Stefon Diggs, Gabe Davis and Isaiah McKenzie. The former Ram would likely fit in as wide receiver three there.

He has a unique opportunity to either come to a team and be their top target or go to a different team and turn their wide receiver room into an utterly terrifying prospect.
