(Audacy Sports/WGR 550) - Could Odell Beckham Jr. be coming back to New York in green and white?
The star wide receiver was reportedly among those on Aaron Rodgers’ preferred list of options he wanted the New York Jets to pursue, and general manager Joe Douglas is not ruling it out.

While meeting with reporters at the NFL Owners' Meetings in Arizona on Monday, Douglas said that no visit is scheduled with Beckham Jr. yet, but he has had “productive conversation’s with Odell’s agent Zeke Sandhu.”
“Odell’s obviously a really talented player,” Douglas continued. “He worked out for several teams a few weeks ago, so we’ll see how that process plays out, but we have had conversations.”
Beckham Jr., 30, missed all of last season while he recovered from a torn ACL he sustained in Super Bowl LVI with the Los Angeles Rams in the previous season. It is his second ACL surgery, so there are certainly questions about what kind of a player he could be wherever he does sign.
The Jets have added Allen Lazard and Mecole Hardman to their receiving corps, which already consists of Garrett Wilson and Corey Davis. They did lose Elijah Moore, however, trading him to the Cleveland Browns.
Despite the question marks about Beckham Jr., adding him would only strengthen the depth and talent at the position, and would give Rodgers a big-play weapon in the Jets offense — once he officially becomes a member of the Jets, that is.
