The Jets are considered the “most likely landing spot” for free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano.

“Odell Beckham Jr. has offers on the table from multiple teams, and I am told the Jets are the most likely landing spot but that Beckham could be waiting to make sure the Aaron Rodgers deal gets completed before finalizing his own decision. Baltimore has made a push for Beckham as well.”

The Jets were among a group of teams that met with Beckham and his representatives during the owners’ meetings in Phoenix this week. Beckham met with both head coach Robert Saleh and general manager Joe Douglas.

From ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler:

“The feeling here is the Jets remain a viable contender, depending on the price point. A few people I spoke to believe Rodgers is the quarterback with whom Beckham wants to play. The next step could be Beckham taking a physical for the Jets or another team. A team will need to feel good about his recovery from a second ACL tear. As one league source forecasted, perhaps Beckham earns a deal of around $8 million per year that can reach $10-plus million with incentives. With a very sluggish free agency market after the initial wave, that’s probably considered a win for Beckham.”

Beckham would be the second fairly high-money wide receiver signed by the Jets this offseason. They are giving $11 million per year, based on the average annual value, to new wide receiver Allen Lazard. The Jets are building a strong offensive support group for when they finally land quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Beckham would certainly help add to that group.
