Ranking the Available Free Agent Wide Receivers for Cowboys in 2023
By Jerry Trotta
1. Odell Beckham Jr.
Not only is Beckham the top free agent wideout available, but he probably has the best chance of signing with Dallas of this foursome.
The Cowboys pursued Beckham before the playoffs in exhausting fashion only to be concerned about his physical and progress recovering from ACL surgery and ending the chase. The pursuit fatigued fans, and even star players like CeeDee Lamb were seemingly bothered by the around-the-clock coverage.
Jerry Jones has already hinted Dallas will be back in on Beckham this offseason. That may not move the needle for some, but Odell proved in the 2021 playoffs that he can still return WR2 value on the other side of 30.
After a disastrous stint in Cleveland, Beckham compiled 27 catches for 305 yards and five touchdowns with the Rams. He took his game to another level in the playoffs, racking up 25 catches for 316 yards and two TDs en route to Los Angeles’ Super Bowl win over the Bengals.
When healthy, Beckham is elite at creating separation; an area Dallas struggled mightily last season, and he’s still dynamic after the catch.
We’re anxious to see how he looks after another ACL surgery, but Odell is without question the top available receiver his offseason.
