Odell Beckham Jr.'s time in Cleveland has come to an end. The Browns have officially waived the star receiver, and if he passes waivers, he will become the most sought-after free agent in a while. In his two and a half seasons with the Browns, he could never find a groove, and it just did not work out from a chemistry standpoint.
He flashed his potential at times, but at the end of the day, it was time for both sides to move on. Naturally, that means we are going to rank the three best landing spots for Beckham. Of course, this is under the assumption that he clears waivers and is free to sign with whoever he chooses.
Either way, we are here to rank the best fits for the 29-year-old star receiver.
3. Kansas City Chiefs
Yep, the Chiefs should go out and get the best receiving talent to ever be cut during the middle of the season. The offense is still sharp this season as they are ranked fourth in yards per game, ninth in yards per play, and 10th in points per game.
The Chiefs have already told the rest of the NFL that they will go after the best offensive talent available when they signed Josh Gordon. If they have a chance to add a deep threat like Beckham, there is no reason for them to not give him a call.
How are you going to guard Beckham, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, and Mecole Hardman? In fact, how are you going to stop all of that and Patrick Mahomes? That is just way too much talent on the field for any defense to handle.
While the Chiefs need more help on the defensive side of the ball, signing Beckham for the rest of the season would not hurt them at all.
2. Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders lost one of the best receiving targets in Henry Ruggs when they released him after the tragic incident that happened this past week. This was not the only surprise exit of one of their core pieces as an organization this season. When Jon Gruden resigned in disgrace, the Raiders were one of the best passing teams in the NFL. In the two games without Gruden, Derek Carr is averaging 332 yards per game with two touchdowns passes per game.
On paper, Beckham is a natural fit. Not only is it a big city that Beckham has already proven that he can thrive in, but the Raiders have an embarrassment of riches on offense and a quarterback that is not afraid to sling it.
While having that many weapons on offense is what ultimately led to the rift between Beckham and Cleveland, the Raiders have a much better scheme to fit around Beckham's biggest strength, which is his freak athletic ability.
1. Green Bay Packers
For a long time, the Packers have ignored adding top-tier receiver talent. Whether that be through free agency or the draft, the Packers just keep whiffing on building an elite supporting cast for Aaron Rodgers.
Now, they have gone out and found players like Robert Tonyan, Davante Adams, and Aaron Jones, but adding a player like Beckham would take them to another level. For Beckham's career, he has had Eli Manning, Daniel Jones, and Baker Mayfield as his quarterbacks. Can you imagine how much he would personally benefit from playing with arguably the most talented quarterback ever?
This is a natural fit, and it has already gotten a lot of buzz on social media. That does not mean anything, but Rodgers and Beckham would instantly become one of the most lethal duos in the NFL.
