Free agent Wide Reciever, Odell Beckham Jr. is scheduled to meet with the Jets as the team looks to add another player to Aaron Rodgers’ wish list. The entire NFL community is waiting to see both the star in the Jets’ jersey.
Trade rumor between Aaron and the Jets is not new as both parties expressed their desire to be paired. Arod stated in the Pat McAfee Show his desire to play for the Jets next season, meanwhile, the Jets also reportedly expressed their interest in the QB. The Jets’ response to Aaron’s enigmatic “SULLLLLL” post should also dispel any doubts about their interest in him.
Also on the Pat McAfee show, the 39-year-old listed the four players he would most like to play alongside while wearing a Jets jersey. Beckham Jr., a player on Rodgers’ wish list, unexpectedly showed up at the NFL owners’ meetings in Arizona while the rumors were swirling. He was seen conversing with Jets general manager Joe Douglas and head coach Robert Salah.
Will Odell Beckham end up signing with the Jets?
Even though the New York Jets have receivers Garrett Wilson, Lazard, Hardman, Corey Davis, and Denzel Mims on their active roster, ESPN’s Jeff Darlington claims that the Jets are still focusing on Odell.
“We should very much consider Odell Beckham Jr. still on the table as an option for the New York Jets,” Darlington said. “In fact, we can go even further to say that both sides would still like to see this done,” Darlington reported on “Get Up”.
The Jets’ desire to make the WR more obvious was revealed by a recent report from NFL’s Ian Rapoport. Beckham Jr. will reportedly visit the New York Jets on Monday for a physical and in-depth talk about a potential trade.
The #Jets long-awaited meeting with WR Odell Beckham Jr will be multi-faceted. It will include not only a physical but also a thorough discussion of what to expect in an Aaron Rodgers-led offense with a deep WR room. How will it all fit together is a big point of discussion.

The position of Odell in the already-deep wide receiver room in New York will be discussed at that meeting, as well as the teams’ strategy for assembling their offensive line thereby keeping Rodgers in charge.
In addition to the Rams in 2021, the 30-year-old also played for the Browns from 2019 to 2021 and the Giants from 2014 to 2018. The wide receiver last participated in Super Bowl LVI, which the Rams won, but unfortunately, he tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) before the game was over.
He played in 12 games in Los Angeles, including the playoffs, before getting hurt, accumulating 49 catches for 593 yards and seven touchdowns.
There was still room for the long-awaited trade even though AR and the Jets appeared to be close to concluding their negotiations. This was because the Jets were worried about the QBs’ advancing age and potential retirement.
The meeting should clear up any confusion the Jets may have had regarding the trades of Rodgers and Beckham. We can anticipate the NY Jets will finally develop a commitment with AR and OB Jr. as the team has an interest in both of them and is looking for their positions to fit with their roster.
