After missing the entire 2022 NFL season due to a torn ACL suffered in the Super Bowl win with the Los Angeles Rams, superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has found it challenging to find a new team.
Although there’s been plenty of rumors connecting Beckham to teams over the past year or so, the veteran wideout has been either reluctant to commit to interested teams or those teams have passed on the opportunity to sign him.
One of the main reasons for teams passing on Beckham might be his high asking price of $15 million per season.
Despite being a high number for an often injured star receiver, former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky believes Beckham is worth every penny, especially if he signs with the New York Jets.

The Jets would be an intriguing landing spot for Beckham as he is very familiar with the city as a result of his time with the New York Giants and would be a solid target for superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers if the team does indeed acquire him in a trade with the Green Bay Packers.
New York is trying to assemble a legitimate Super Bowl title contender in the AFC, and signing a healthy Beckham might be a step in the right direction.
The major question with Beckham is whether he can stay healthy throughout an NFL season while being able to produce on the field consistently.
During his short stint with the Rams, Beckham caught 27 passes for 305 yards and five touchdowns.NEXT: The Raiders Will Visit With A Top QB Prospect On Friday
