3 Free agents the Atlanta Falcons should sign during camp
By Nick Halden
3. Odell Beckham Jr.
Despite the injury in the Super Bowl, it is shocking that Odell Beckham remains on the market as we close in on the pre-season. The receiver was a huge part of the Rams’ run to the Super Bowl and put together tape proving he is still a high-impact player when given the right opportunity.
Odell is a number one receiver who has just won a ring and could be looking for an opportunity to get the bulk of the targets. Atlanta should offer Beckham a deal with their only advantage being the willingness to build an offense around Odell.
Beckham is box office and would help Atlanta make it through a tough rebuilding season just as he did with New York in his final seasons with the Giants. Odell wanting to sign with the Falcons is a long shot but considering he is still on the market Atlanta should be willing to make an offer to acquire a receiver who still appears to be in his prime.
Odell would accelerate the Atlanta rebuild pushing them to being only a quarterback, guard, and pass rusher away from becoming a team who can compete in what should be a wide-open NFC South next season.
