Odell Beckham Jr. experienced the highs and lows of being an American Football star within the space of a few minutes of Super Bowl LVI.
The 30-year-old joined the Los Angeles Rams midway through the 2021 season and scored the first touchdown of the Super Bowl before leaving the game in the second quarter with an ACL injury that has sidelined him ever since.
Now that he is nearing a return from his injury, and with the post-season on the horizon, interest in Beckham Jr. is growing, and he is set to meet with the New York Giants this week.
The MetLife Stadium side is currently 7-4 and is looking good to secure their first post-season run since 2016.

However, the Giants are not the only team in town looking at snapping up the free agent and one franchise that’s being far more direct about their interest in the Dallas Cowboys, with their owner Jerry Jones making it plain that his team wants the player to sign with them;
“Odell could help us,”
“I believe that right now. Now, we’ve got to make it fit, and that’s the challenge here.” Jones stated.
However, right now, Beckham Jr. is in the news for entirely different reasons following an incident that saw him taken off a plane. By all accounts, he was kicked off an American Airlines flight after he “appeared to be in and out of consciousness.”
Following the incident, the Miami-Dade County Police Department released the following statement;
“Fearing that Mr. Beckham was seriously ill and that his condition would worsen through the expected five-hour flight, the attendants called for police and fire rescue,”
“Upon the officers’ arrival, the flight crew asked Mr. Beckham several times to exit the aircraft, which he refused. The aircraft was de-planed, at which time Mr. Beckham was asked by the officers to exit the plane and did so without incident.”
He was not arrested, and the flight left without him two hours later.
He is still scheduled to meet the Giants this week and is expected to travel to Buffalo before meeting with the Cowboys in early December.
Beckham Jr. is clearly a player capable of offering any franchise additional quality, and though he comes with a fair amount of baggage, much of which is not of his own making, it’s understandable why the queue for his services continues to grow.
When it comes to a decision he will have to make, a move back to the Giants would be the sentimental option, while both the Bills and the Cowboys offer him a more genuine shot at another Super Bowl title.
