As the NFL season grows closer, former LSU wideout Odell Beckham Jr is still without a home.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network recently had an update on Beckham's status.
Rapoport pointed out how Beckham is still recovering from an ACL and could be exercising patience. Beckham might not be able to play early in the year anyway, so why not take more time to recover?
It doesn't seem like Beckham is signing anytime soon. This would give Beckham a chance to join a contender down the stretch in good health.
The Rams have maintained interest, but there hasn't been much smoke around other teams.
Teams like the Cowboys, Titans, or Colts could use his services. All three of those teams expect to contend but need some more depth at wide receiver.
In 14 games last year, Beckham caught 44 passes for 537 yards. He really shined in the postseason, where he had 288 yards and a couple of touchdowns.
That included a 113-yard performance in the NFC Championship game. In the Super Bowl, he put the Rams up 7-0 with a first-quarter touchdown.
In his eight NFL seasons, Beckham has eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark on five occasions and that total could be even higher if it weren't for injuries.
Beckham is just 29 and could be an important part of an offense this year.
