Despite his NFL pedigree, superstar WR Odell Beckham Jr. is still unsigned.
OBJ had to sit out the whole season while nursing a major knee injury suffered in Super Bowl LVI, and some teams had serious doubts about his health.
Beckham denied the reports of his alleged asking price of $20 million per season, and he reportedly had a very positive workout with multiple teams in attendance.
So, at this point, it seems like he’s waiting to make a decision and not like he doesn’t have any suitors interested in his services, as some reports stated earlier.
The Baltimore Ravens are reportedly making a strong push to sign him, but NFL insider Dov Kleiman states that OBJ is waiting to see how the situation between the New York Jets and Aaron Rodgers pans out, adding that he would prefer to join the Jets instead.

Notably, OBJ reportedly gave it a lot of thought to sign with the Green Bay Packers before joining the Los Angeles Rams a couple of seasons ago, so he’s clearly enticed by the prospect of teaming up with Rodgers.
Rodgers has already expressed his desire to play for the Jets, but both teams are still working out the compensation for the four-time MVP.
Even so, the Jets have full confidence in the deal getting done eventually.
As for Beckham, there will always be some injury concerns with a guy like him, but the Jets shouldn’t hesitate to sign him if he’s willing to take a pay cut to team up with Rodgers.NEXT: Latest Odds Show Packers' Chances Of Winning NFC North
