The NFL has seen some spectacular receivers enter the league in the last 20 years.
Calvin Johnson, Chad Ochocinco, De’Andre Hopkins, and Odell Beckham Jr. are just a few of the names that come to mind.
Although Johnson and Ochocinco are out of the league, Hopkins is still making an impact in the NFL as a member of the Arizona Cardinals.
After tearing his ACL in the 2021 Super Bowl, and not playing at all in 2022, Beckham could be eyeing a return next season.

In the video above, Beckham is seen running an all-out sprint.
This is a definite step in the right direction for Beckham, as ACL tears have been known to be some of the most gruesome injuries, especially for wide receivers and running backs.
Despite this positive news, Beckham still has a long way to go if he wants to play in 2023.
He will need to continue working on his quick movements, stopping, and catching the ball.
Some of these skills will likely come back sooner than others, but, when a player is away from the game for any amount of time, they are bound to lose a step or two.
Athletic abilities aside, Beckham is still a free agent.
How many teams will be willing to sign him?
Yes, Beckham, when healthy, has been one of the best wide receivers in the NFL.
Being away from the game for as long as he has could scare away potential suitors.
Only time will tell what will happen to Odell and his future in the league.NEXT: Derek Carr Has 1 More Night To Shine In Las Vegas
