The Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants have both expressed an interest in obtaining the signature of free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. This news adds extra intrigue as the two teams gear up to face each other on Thursday evening.

Beckham has been unattached since leaving the Los Angeles Rams at the conclusion of the 2021 season. Instead, he has been using his off time to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament that he suffered in the Rams’ Super Bowl victory. Beckham notably scored the first touchdown of the game before going off injured in the second quarter.

Cowboys quarterback Dax Prescott has been open about his team’s interest in Beckham, commenting: “He knows how much I want him here, and a lot of these guys in this locker room I’ve seen have reached out on their own in different ways to making sure that he understands that this is a team that he can help.”

According to reports, Beckham is expected to wait until after Thanksgiving to decide on his future. Other teams who are in the mix to sign the player include the Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the San Francisco 49ers.
