In recent weeks, many NFL teams expressed interest in Odell Beckham Jr, a free wide receiver.
The All-Pro wide receiver is still not signed with anyone. Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys explained why.
“In this particular case, start by asking, ‘Why is it that you’re able to sign him?’ Ask that question, Why?’ Well, because he’s not on a team,” Jones said when asked why OBJ hasn’t signed yet.
“At this time of year? A player of that caliber? That’s rare. Trading is over. Well it’s because we’re dealing with a situation where he is free. Free, but potentially very capable of helping a team right now win and play at a high level. That will tell you alone it is a rarefied set of circumstances, and those don’t just happen or this wouldn’t be possible.”
Jerry Jones would like to see Odell Beckham Jr. on the Cowboys. So, why isn't he signed yet?

It is not clear when OBJ will be able to assist a team. However, that hasn’t stopped many teams, such as the Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, and Los Angeles Rams, from being interested.
