Jerry Jones Says Odell Beckham Jr. ‘Could Look Pretty Good’ With A Cowboys Star On Him

The Super Bowl LVI champion is currently a free-agent and recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in the game.

The courting process for Odell Beckham Jr.’s services seem to be heating up as the most notable current NFL free agent could be joining a playoff contender soon.

The star receiver, who suffered a torn ACL in Super Bowl LVI, is currently available while he recovers from the injury. According to, OBJ is believed to be close to medically able to return, which could result in a sweepstakes for his services.

The Dallas Cowboys, who unsuccessfully attempted to land veteran wideout Brandin Cooks before the trade deadline, are reportedly one of the several teams in the hunt to land Beckham, according to’s Ian Rapoport.

During his weekly appearance on Shan & RJ on Audacy’s 105.3 The Fan (Dallas) on Tuesday (November 8), Cowboys owner Jerry Jones commented on possibly signing the 10-year veteran.

"Odell is someone that we have all the appreciation in the world for what he is as a competitor," Jones said. "I know the Cowboys star on that helmet, when he puts it on, could look pretty good."

If OBJ were to sign with Dallas, he’d join a receiver room led by CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Noah Brown. Jones also noted he’d have no reservations about getting the former Pro Bowl receiver up to speed.

"We should be aware that he's coming off this injury, but he showed he can do it, and do it well last year," Jones said. "So that would go in the mix real good. His past dealing with adversity of injury rehab, I think that tells you a lot.

"I think a veteran player, such as Odell, my experience has been when we've brought a veteran player in, they hit the ground running in terms of being able to compete,” he added. “That usually is not a big factor when we think about whether or not a player can fit.

“Now, the player's individual skills, his people skills as well as his past experience in terms of the systems that he's been in, if (a player) has been with several teams,” he continued. “All of those weigh in on it. I think that you're looking at a player that his experience far outweighs any of that ambiguity involved with how he's going to fit your system."
