Dallas Cowboys general manager Jerry Jones and his team discussed the latest with Odell Beckham Jr . During an interview Tuesday at 105.3 The Fan
After falling asleep on a flight from Giants, the former Giants star was removed. Jones claims that the Cowboys are not affected by the incident at the plane.
“No. It did not (impact interest),” Jones said, via Jon Machota. “His overall team compatibility, his judgment, his behavior is not an issue with him. It is with many, but not with him.”
Beckham was referred to by the Cowboys owner as “very, very compatible” as well as being “very genuine and competitive”.
Jones’ team will host Beckham Dec. 5, for a free agent visit. These plans have not changed. Jones doesn’t care about the Giants and Bills, Dallas is not his only stop.
“I know what the Dallas area is,” Jones said. “I know what football means to this area. And I do know that we’re the most visible team. From that standpoint, there’s a lot of interest in it. And everybody likes to be part of something that’s substantive, and that’s the Cowboys.”
The Cowboys are currently 8-3 for the year. Beckham could be a weapon for Dak Prescott down the stretch. Jones made it clear Tuesday.
“We have to have this year,” Jones said. ‘It’s very important, the things we do to have him impact this year. This year has to be a big part of it. We have six regular-season games and the playoffs, we have, in my mind, almost the whole show ahead of us. We got to have a situation where he can really contribute now.”
Beckham will be making a lot of stops after the Thanksgiving holiday. Sources told Ian Rapoport that Beckham plans to visit the Giants Thursday and Friday. The wideout will meet with Dallas on December 5. He is also visiting Buffalo Bills.
Beckham caught 48 passes for 593 yards in 12 games with the Rams (regular and playoffs) and scored 7 touchdowns. This was second only to Cooper Kupp at that time.
Because of his status as a free agent, Beckham is one the most frequently mentioned names in the league. The former No. 12 overall pick and two time All-Pro receiver won the Super Bowl with Los Angeles Rams last season, but was granted free agency following a torn ACL.
