The Packers notched their first win of the 2022 season last night vs the Chicago Bears. A 27-10 win once again showed that Green Bay has owned the rivalry as of late. Even with that being said, James Jones feels like Green Bay could still add to their wide receiver room. Today he named dropped one player he thought would be a great fit. Super Bowl Champion Wide Receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr To Green Bay?

I mean I think it’s all about how healthy OBJ is. You can’t go wrong with it. You got a guy that can still play at a high level. We saw him last year with the Rams really help take that offense to the next level once he got into a rhythm. I wouldn’t mind having another guy in there that we know 100% can win his one on one matchups.
James Jones certainly makes a good point, but is it realistic? The contract would be the biggest hurdle. According to Spotrac’s market value calculations, Beckham is now projected to fetch a contract that pays him an average annual salary of $13.1 million over two seasons. Of course, it remains to be seen how much Beckham’s torn ACL impacts his market. The receiver could look to sign another short one-year deal. This to possibly hit the open market again next year in a healthier state for a longer contract.
How would Odell Beckham Fit In Green Bay?
With Beckham not being ready until mid-season most likely, he is a candidate for a trade deadline type of signing. The Packers could add him in time for the stretch run before the playoffs. It is also important to remember that the Packers were interested in Beckham last season before he chose to sign with the Rams.
If the Packers can find a way to bring him in to play for them this season, the offense would add a new level because of the Louisiana native’s ability to stretch the field. Aaron Rodgers and Beckham certainly have a relationship off the field and could form an elite connection on the field. Odell Beckham would have a very real chance at winning back-to-back Super Bowls with two different teams. It would be a win-win move for both parties.
