When healthy, Odell Beckham Jr. has proven to be one of the most impactful offensive players in the NFL. He's a gifted athlete and physical mismatch with nearly every single defender, not to mention his reliable hands.

But injuries have hurt Beckham's chances in free agency. He's fresh off winning a Super Bowl ring, yet his ACL injury in that game has driven multiple teams away from making a run at him.

When Will OBJ Be Back?

OBJ underwent surgery in February and hopes to be ready for the start of the season. Nonetheless, it's highly unlikely that we see him on the gridiron until late November. That's far from ideal with the NFL season just one month away.

Beckham and the Los Angeles Rams have openly flirted about a reunion, yet nothing has happened yet. That's why other teams could try and swoop in and prevent Sean McVay from getting another top-notch weapon.

Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts were reportedly in on Julio Jones but eventually cheaper out. They need a legit threat in the passing game, especially now that they have a significant upgrade at QB with Matt Ryan.

The Colts haven't had an elite receiver since T.Y. Hilton, who's also a free agent and dealing with injuries of his own. They were quite close to the playoffs last season before another infamous Carson Wentz meltdown, and their roster is built to compete for a Super Bowl.

Green Bay Packers

How long can a receiving corps of Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, and three rookies take you? Even with Aaron Rodgers leading the way? The Green Bay Packers could use a veteran wideout, and there's not a better WR available than OBJ.

Beckham Jr. was reportedly quite close to joining the Packers before signing with the Rams last season. Davante Adams' departure left a glaring need for Matt LaFleur's squad, and it's about time they do something to surround Rodgers with more offensive talent.

Dallas Cowboys

OBJ's family are diehard Dallas Cowboys fans. He's always raved about AT&T Stadium and claims he loves to play there, even despite his past with their divisional rivals, the New York Giants.

Michael Gallup is expected to miss the early portion of the season as well, while James Washington also suffered an injury. Also, there's just too much on the line for the Cowboys this season, so they should look to add more firepower while they still can.
