Cowboys owner Jerry Jones

Past the midway point in the NFL season, former All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is still a free agent without a team. The veteran receiver is coming off of an ACL injury in the Super Bowl last season but still has made it clear that he still wants to play and has plenty of suitorsincluding his first team, the New York Giants. But it sure seems like the Dallas Cowboys are interested, as well.

On Monday, Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy didn’t dispute the fact that the Cowboys were interested in signing Odell Beckham Jr., saying he was a “big fan” of the veteran receiver. But on Tuesday, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones took it a step further, indicating that the team is definitely interested in signing OBJ.

“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.”

Initially, it looked like Beckham Jr. would end up back with the Los Angeles Rams. But after that relationship seemed to have soured a bit, maybe he will end up in Dallas, after all.
