The Dallas Cowboys are focused on acquiring Odell Beckham Jr after the trade deadline has passed, according to reports.
The Cowboys failed to secure a new receiver despite their many attempts to call the league around before the trade deadline passed.
However, Dallas has now shifted its focus to one wide receiver that is still available.
The Dallas Cowboys are “deeply interested” in acquiring wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham Jr. is the best free agent available and is firmly on the Cowboys’ radar, according to NFL.comthey are expected to be in the mix when he is ready to pick his team after fully recovering from an ACL tear.
The Cowboys have reportedly not had contract talks with Beckham’s agent Zeke Sandhu, but the team has continued to monitor his health and how his recovery has progressed.
Beckham rehabilitates the torn ACL he sustained while winning the Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams.
But he is getting closer to a return and could even be cleared to play this week, according to Fox.
However, the Cowboys won’t be the only team after him once he gets a clean bill of health.
Joe Schoen, general manager of the New York Giants, confessed on Wednesday that the team’s front office is in contact with free agent representatives.
Beckham Rehabilitates The Torn ACL He Suffered From Winning The Super Bowl With The Rams
While the Giants are 6-2 after an impressive start to the season, their receiving yards rank 30th in the NFL (1,410). Only the Bears (1204) and the Titans (1158) have the worst record, and New York is aware that it needs reinforcements in that division for the postseason.
“We’re going to be doing our due diligence all the time and he’s a guy we have, you know, we’ve contacted his reps, we’ve been in touch with his reps, where he’s in rehab, what he’s expected to be , whether in four weeks or five weeks in terms of his health, when he will be available,” Schoen said of “OBJ” on the TV show Tiki + Tierney.
Beckham previously made an unofficial visit to the team building to see former teammates Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley.
The 30-year-old has been out since winning Super Bowl LVI in February
“I had no idea he was in the building until he was out of the building,” Schoen said.
During his original stint in New York, Beckham reached more than 1,000 yards in four of his five seasons and three consecutive Pro Bowls from 2014 to 2016.
He also earned second-team All-Pro honors in 2015 and 2016.
New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen has also expressed interest in Beckham
Beckham has publicly toyed with the idea of returning to New York, responding to Barkley on Twitter.
The Giants are one of the biggest surprises in the NFL as they head into a bye week with a .750 record and a real shot at making the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
With three more wins, the Giants can guarantee their first winning season in six years. With four or five wins in the last nine games, a play-off spot is likely.
