Odell Beckham Jr. has a preference to join the Green Bay Packers on Thursday afternoon, hours ahead of the former Pro Bowl wide receiver officially clearing waivers at 4:00 p.m. ET.
Beckham was released by the Cleveland Browns last Friday (November 5), subjecting him to waivers, allowing any NFL team to put in a claim for him and inherit the remaining $7.25 million on his contract with Cleveland.
Beckham will instead become a free agent after clearing waivers at 4:00 p.m. ET, allowing him to choose his own destination.
Last week, his father, Odell Beckham Sr., shared an 11-minute video on his verified Instagram acocunt that specifically called out quarterback Baker Mayfield for missing his son on muerous passing plays.
The Packers have had a need at the wide receiver position during the 2021 season, with their three top receivers Davante Adams, Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling all missing the team’s 24-21 win against the Arizona Cardinals on October 28.
