The Miami Dolphins would have created the most deadly offensive weapons for next season if only free agent Odell Beckham Jr. had agreed to join the squad of ‘cheetah’ Tyreek Hill

Ever since the former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver entered the free agency market, there has been a lot of anticipation surrounding his potential landing spots. However, it recently came to everyone’s knowledge that the Dolphins are the favorites to sign him. 

Last Monday, during the NFL’s league meetings, Miami head coach Mike McDaniel revealed the franchise had made an offer to Beckham when he visited last week but didn’t sign it ‘yet.’ But McDaniel believes this wasn’t the end, as the contract talk would be continued, as reported by the Miami Herald

Things went great with him. We did make him an offer and business takes time, especially with players such as Odell, who’s had a phenomenal career, still has really good football in front of him and has options. So, I think those conversations will be ongoing. We’ll see where they go.
Said McDaniel

In addition to the amazing receiving duo of Hill and Jaylen Waddle, the Dolphins are looking for the right prospect to take over the job of receiver No. 3. WR Cedrick Wilson Jr. vacated the position and joined the New Orleans Saints this offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Why are the Dolphins pursuing Odell Beckham Jr. in the free agency market?

When it comes to wide receivers, the Dolphins sure rank among the top teams in the NFL. Adding receiver Beckham to the squad would be superior, especially if he is paired with star receiver Hill

Given the role of wide receivers on the offense, Beckham’s addition to the Dolphies does appear promising. Despite the injury setback, the receiver has well established his name through the 97 games he started and 59 recorded touchdowns. 

Although the Dolphins do have strong backs of great receivers, they do not boost the depth of the position. And poaching Beckham from the free agency market seems like the right decision by the franchise.

Head coach McDaniel has also expressed his desire to coach Beckham; therefore, all eyes seek the receiver’s response to it.
