Report: Packers offer Odell Beckham Jr. veteran’s minimum

Odell Beckham Jr. was offered a contract worth the NFL veteran’s minimum for the remainder of the season by the Green Bay Packers, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported Wednesday.

The former Pro Bowl wide receiver cleared waivers and is officially a free agent.

ESPN reported Beckham was considering three contenders — the Packers, New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs — above other teams, and said the Saints were being “aggressive” in trying to land Beckham.

The Packers are in line after being criticized by quarterback Aaron Rodgers for not being involved in the bidding for top free agents in the past.

Beckham’s next NFL team will be his third.

Beckham, 29, was traded in 2019 by the New York Giants to the Cleveland Browns, who agreed Friday to waive him following a social media post from Beckham’s father criticizing Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

The Browns and Beckham came to terms on a reworked contract before placing him on waivers.

“We’re moving on,” Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said last week, before his team thumped the Bengals 41-16. “It’s unfortunate how it happened. I think it’s unfortunate for both sides, but we have to move on and put our focus on this game versus Cincinnati.”

Beckham, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, finished with just one catch for 6 yards in Cleveland’s 15-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 31 in his final game with the Browns. He had 17 receptions for 232 yards with no touchdown receptions in six games this season.

Beckham has 504 catches for 7,062 yards with 51 touchdowns in 88 career games with the Giants (2014-18) and Browns.
