Odell Beckham Jr. free agency rumors: WR pitching reunion with former Rams teammate in Buffalo

A new team has emerged as Odell Beckham Jr.’s free agency target of choice, a season after he ended his year-long stint in Los Angeles with a Super Bowl.

The former Giants, Browns and Rams wide receiver has indicated in multiple social media posts that he wants a reunion with former Rams teammate Von Miller in Buffalo.

It all started with Beckham responding to an Instagram post from Miller and asking, “What does the locker next to you look like?”

Miller then – who ended up in free agency with the Bills after half a season with the Rams – replied, “Been open since I’ve been here. I’m waiting for you.”

Miller even posted an altered photo of Beckham in a Bills uniform, which only further advances the narrative that the two are attempting to reunite in the AFC East.

Beckham, of course, took his free time. The ninth-year receiver tore his cruciate ligament in the Super Bowl, meaning he won’t be ready until October — four games into the season.

Beckham wasn’t at his best in 2021, which he split between Cleveland and Los Angeles. However, he saw a significant surge in production after arriving with the Rams, where he caught 27 passes for 305 yards and five touchdowns in eight games (plus an additional 21 receptions for 288 yards and two points in the playoffs).

He would offer a high upside veteran presence in any receiving corps, and that includes Buffalo. Stefon Diggs would remain the top receiving target for Josh Allen after a season of 103 catches, 1,225 yards and 10 touchdowns. But Beckham, who has five 1,000-yard receiving seasons, could step into a starting position right away.

The Bills could certainly use Beckham, although it’s worth asking if his ongoing rehab will block any talks or affect a contract he could command.

One thing is for sure, though: If Beckham doesn’t end up in Buffalo, it won’t be because of a lack of interest. Either him or Miller.
