The NFL offseason is here for all but two teams. With that, free agency is right around the corner, and teams such as the Green Bay Packers have a ton of questions to answer.
Aaron Rodgers is the biggest question mark in Green Bay, and if he leaves, there will be plenty of changes to the roster at the beginning of what would be a new era.
One player who will draw interest from across the NFL is wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. After a successful stint with the Los Angeles Rams in 2021 that included a Super Bowl trip, Beckham spent the 2022 season rehabbing his injury.
On Tuesday, Beckham gave a massive update on his status for 2023 that should make plenty of teams a bit intrigued.

That’s certainly good news for Beckham, who tore his ACL almost one year ago in the Rams’ Super Bowl victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Packers Were Interested In Odell Beckham Jr.
When the Cleveland Browns released Beckham in the middle of the 2021 season, the Packers emerged as a serious option to land him, although Beckham decided to head for LA. In 2022, the Packers once again popped up as a potential destination for Beckham, although he didn’t sign anywhere and instead focused on getting healthy.

With the roster in flux heading into this offseason, it will be interesting to see whether or not the Packers kick the tires on Beckham. If Rodgers does leave, it probably won’t happen, especially if green Bay moves toward a more youthful movement.
Nonetheless, Beckham’s status over the next few weeks will be one of the biggest storylines after he had a terrific run with the Rams in 2021.
