Many have been speculating where star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. may potentially sign this season. Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott offered a very clear message on Beckham’s potential free agency decision on Wednesday.
Elliott discussed the situation with reporters, reportedly saying that he and other Cowboys teammates want Beckham to play for Dallas.
“We want him. We want OBJ,” said Elliott according to Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

However, talks have ramped up about the Cowboys potentially landing Beckham after Dallas owner Jerry Jones’ recent comments about a potential pairing between the two parties.
“Odell is someone that we have all the appreciation in the world for what he is as a competitor,” Jones said, according to Cowboys reporter Jon Machota of The Athletic. “I know the Cowboys star on that helmet when he puts it on could look pretty good.”

It certainly seems like it would be a great fit on paper to add Odell Beckham Jr. for star quarterback Dak Prescott to throw to and create a potentially great receiving duo with star receiver CeeDee Lamb.
Beckham was originally expected to return sometime later this month from his ACL injury, but it is now expected that he may not be able to return until mid-December.
Regardless, it certainly seems like he could make an impact for a potential playoff team down the stretch of this season and into the postseason, and it seems like most of the Dallas locker room is very interested in him.
