2. Odell Beckham Jr.

This name has been in the Cowboys rumor mill for the past few years and now he is available again. Beckham posted a message on his Instagram indicating he will most likely not be back with the Baltimore Ravens. The receiver signed a one-year deal last offseason and had a solid bounce-back year posting over 500 yards and three touchdowns.

For a player who sat out all of 2022 due to an ACL injury he suffered in the Super Bowl with the Rams in 2021, many consider Beckham to be finding himself again. The Cowboys considered signing him during that season, but chose to go with T.Y. Hilton instead due to health concerns with Beckham. The move proved to be the right one as Hilton provided a few sparks on offense during the back half of the season.

Beckham is someone Dallas could consider again, but the likelihood Jerry and Stephen engage with him is low. The release of Michael Gallup does open the door for Dallas needing another productive number three receiver. Jalen Tolbert showed improvement last season at times, but the Cowboys might be considering another replacement for Gallup in free agency or the draft.

Based on how well Beckham seemed to get along with guys like Micah Parsons when he was sitting courtside at a Dallas Mavericks game, Dallas may still be on his mind. Despite what was seen last year, things can change quickly.

Beckham still wants to be paid decent money this offseason and the injury history still exists. He is also getting up there in age and it seems the Cowboys are looking to get younger at some positions this offseason as well. It might be in the team's best interest to stick with the Tolbert plan or draft another receiver.
