Although NFL free agency opened up days ago, there is still an intriguing wide receiver available on the market.
After two ACL tears, Odell Beckham Jr. has been marketing himself to a number of teams as he looks to return to the field after missing last season due to rehab.
Several teams attended an open workout he held recently, and the Buffalo Bills are reportedly one of the teams that are interested in him.
#Bills have also checked in on Odell Beckham, Jr., source says. There’s been real interest in the past – inc dinner at Josh Allen’s house, so this isn’t a surprise. The price would have to make sense, but Buffalo is worth monitoring as another potential OBJ suitor. @theScore pic.twitter.com/1pA0X1ZDRI

Beckham has been campaigning for a return to the NFL ever since the late stages of last season, but obviously, nothing has materialized yet.
Although he used to be a speed demon prior to his ACL injuries, there are naturally concerns over just how much speed and quickness he has left.
Despite fielding one of the best rosters in pro football over the last three years, the Bills have reached the AFC Championship Game only once, and the franchise hasn’t been to the Super Bowl since the 1993 season.
Last season, Buffalo got rolled in the divisional round by the Cincinnati Bengals, as it was able to muster just 10 points in its 17-point defeat.
The days of Beckham being a featured wideout are likely over, but if he is physically capable enough, he could be a very nice situational threat for a team such as the Bills.
They have an outstanding No. 1 receiver in Stefon Diggs and a solid No. 2 threat in Gabriel Davis, but one more ancillary threat could finally put them over the top next season.
