Odell Beckham

As former All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. continues his search for a new NFL team, he was the source of quite a bit of controversy this week when he was removed from a plane by police after he reportedly caused a scene – though his retelling of the events was much different. But despite the incident on the plane, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has made it very clear that he’s still interested in signing the veteran receiver.

During his weekly radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan, Jerry Jones claimed that he is not concerned about the behavior of Odell Beckham Jr, especially compared to other players.

“His overall team compatibility, his judgment, his behavior is not an issue with him,” Jones said, according to Dallas Cowboys reporter Todd Archer of ESPN. “It is with many. It isn’t with him.”

Jones previously had a “good meeting” with Beckham and explained that adding Beckham to the roster would not only help the team in the future but also this season.

“We have to have this year. It’s very important. This year has to be a big part of it,” Jones said. “We have almost the whole show ahead of us, but we’ve got to have a situation where we can really contribute now.”
