Report: Odell Beckham Jr. Hoping to Sign With Contender

The veteran will have to clear waivers first.

CINCINNATI — The Bengals host the Browns on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Cincinnati is hoping to improve to 6-3 on the season and keep pace in the tough AFC North. 

The Bengals won't have to worry about Odell Beckham Jr. The star wide-out will be inactive for the game and officially released by the Browns on Monday. 

The 29-year-old will be subject to waivers, but only nine teams have enough cap space to claim him

If he goes unclaimed, he'll become a free agent and will be able to sign with any team. 

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the three-time Pro Bowler has his eyes on some of the best teams in the NFL. 

"Beckham does not want to go to just any team, according to sources familiar with his thinking. Beckham wants to spend the rest of this season with a playoff contender and in a winning environment, where he believes he would be happy and productive," Schefter wrote. "Multiple teams with winning records and established offenses are expected to be interested in Beckham. Certain players already have reached out to Beckham, pitching the merits of their organization, according to sources."

If Beckham clears waivers, he's expected to sign with a team next week. The Patriots, Seahawks, Buccaneers, Rams, Raiders and Chargers could all be interested in his services.
