Odell Beckham Jr., a wide receiver for the NFL, has been one of the most sought-after free agents this offseason. Beckham missed the 2022 NFL season due to an ACL tear during Super Bowl LVI over a year ago.
However, he’s ready to make a comeback and has denied the claims of seeking a multiyear $20 million deal per season. But why are NFL teams trying to get him to sign for too little?

OBJ has taken to Twitter to dispel these rumors and deny the claims that he is seeking such a high figure. He alleges that teams are offering him too little to sign on, but he does not reveal the exact contract details. While he may be receiving offers for $4 million per year, it is unclear whether these are guaranteed amounts or incentive-laden contract offers.
What’s Beckham’s injury history?
Beckham hasn’t played an NFL game since he missed the second half of Super Bowl 56 with a torn ACL. It marked the second time in two seasons Beckham had torn the same ACL. The Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens have been linked to Beckham in NFL free agency.
The Giants, Dallas Cowboys, and Buffalo Bills had serious discussions about signing Beckham during the 2022 season, but he wasn’t quite ready to get back on the football field during a meaningful game.
What’s next for Odell Beckham Jr.?
Beckham Jr. held a private workout for over a dozen of teams last week in Arizona, showing signs of returning to football form before the NFL’s new league year kicks off. While he’s denied seeking a $20 million contract, he’s looking to sign a fair deal with a team that values him.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that many teams are interested in signing him, and many quarterbacks would love to have him as an offensive weapon on their team. Beckham Jr.’s comeback season is highly anticipated, and it remains to be seen which team he’ll ultimately sign with.
While rumors may be swirling about his contract demands, OBJ is focused on returning to the field and performing at the highest level. It is clear that he has plenty of suitors, and it is only a matter of time before he signs with a new team.
The 30-year-old wide receiver has a lot to prove after missing an entire season due to injury, but he is determined to show that he still has what it takes to be a top player in the NFL.
