Whatever Jerry Jones wants for the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones apparently gets — yes, even after signing TY Hilton as a late-season game-breaker.
Jones, Trevon Diggs and Micah Parsons wined-and-dined Odell Beckham Jr. last week before tanking his value on the open market, leaking to the football world that he’d be ready for 2023 and wouldn’t be making much of an impact until deep in the team’s 2022 postseason run (at the most optimistic).
With the emergence of Noah Brown in recent weeks, as well as the Hilton signing, it seemed logical the Cowboys would reassess things and try again with Beckham in the new year for next season’s roster.
But what good is logic when you’ve got Jerry?!
According to the owner’s comments on Friday — out of nowhere — the team actually plans to bring Beckham in this year. Not only that, but Jones hopes he’ll have a massive impact in the postseason a la Deion Sanders, and plans to finalize a contract soon.
Dallas Cowboys to sign Odell Beckham Jr.? Jerry Jones thinks so!
After tossing all sorts of cold water on Beckham’s medicals last week, it seems Jones now expects something akin to the wideout’s Super Bowl performance during Dallas’ playoff party.
Last February, he registered two receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown before tearing his ACL midway through the biggest game of his life, still coming down with a ring.
Just a few weeks ago, the Bills, Giants and Cowboys seemed prepared to join the three-ring circus for a new-look Beckham, with the Chiefs rumored to be lurking on the periphery — that’s when the Cowboys claimed to have stunning new rehab information that would render a signing irrelevant.
Apparently not! Long live life on the marquee. OBJ is likely headed Dallas’ way. How much he’ll actually affect the team’s playoff chances is a firm TBD.
