Ravens sign Odell Beckham Jr. to one-year deal worth $15 million
April 11, 2023
It appears the Baltimore Ravens still want Lamar Jackson as their quarterback after all for the 2023 National Football League season. On Sunday, the Ravens signed unrestricted free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. of Baton Rouge, Louisiana to a one-year deal worth $15 million according to Mike Florio of NBC Sports. Beckham Jr. becomes a primary offensive target for Jackson that the Ravens have been looking for, and in the process could convince their veteran quarterback to stay.
The Ravens become the fourth team that Beckham Jr. has played for, following the New York Giants, Cleveland Browns, and Los Angeles Rams. He has not played since Super Bowl LVI, when he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in a 23-20 Rams win over the Cincinnati Bengals. In the game, Beckham Jr, caught two passes for 52 yards and one touchdown. The major score was a 17-yard catch from Matt Stafford which opened the scoring.
