For the first time in his NFL career, Odell Beckham Jr. is officially a free agent. Moments ago, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport announced that Beckham cleared waivers.
If a team did claim Beckham off waivers, they would’ve been on the hook for his $7.25 million salary for the rest of the 2021 season. Not many teams actually had the cap space to absorb that contract, though.
Now that Beckham has officially cleared waivers, he can choose where he’ll go next. However, NFL fans shouldn’t expect him to make an immediate decision.
According to CBS NFL insider Josina Anderson, Beckham is expected to take his time before deciding where he’ll resume his career.
“My understanding is that free agent WR Odell Beckham Jr. will take some time and assess the best situation for him with several options still on the table, per league source,” Anderson tweeted on Tuesday.

Even though a decision hasn’t been made yet, NFL insider Jordan Schultz announced a few hours ago that Beckham has prioritized the Packers as his No. 1 destination should he clear waivers.
The Packers aren’t the only team that has been linked to Beckham over the past few days. Both the Saints and Seahawks have been mentioned as potential suitors as well.
Beckham wasn’t putting up All-Pro numbers this season, but he could potentially be the missing piece to a contending team’s championship puzzle.
