These are the one identified visits scheduled for Beckham, though he could maybe well well recall others sooner than making a dedication on where to keep.
Beckham, 30, did focus on over with the Giants’ facility final month to seem at on old teammate Sterling Shepard after Shepard’s ACL slip, however didn’t meet with the team’s brass. This time, it be deliberate, and an fantastic reunion with the team that selected him 12th total in the 2014 NFL Draft is a possibility.

He’s said to be in huge form and in a position to present a team a purchase down the stretch, as he did for Los Angeles final year after his launch from the Browns. And by the purpose he makes his visits, Beckham can non-public to silent be in a position to circulate a bodily.
The Cowboys were very open about their pursuit of Beckham — especially owner Jerry Jones, who kicked things into overdrive when he said in a radio interview two weeks ago, “We now non-public the total appreciation on this planet for Odell. I do know the Cowboys huge title on that helmet, when he places it on, could maybe well well peer somewhat correct.” Sources tell the fervour is mutual with Beckham, who likely will focus on over with The Celebrity subsequent Monday or Tuesday.
