Surprise Team Potentially Emerges In The Odell Beckham Jr. Sweepstakes

5 Ways that Odell Beckham Jr. Improves the Cleveland Browns

Three big NFL contenders - the Bills, Packers and Rams - are mentioned as favorites to land veteran free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. However, a surprise team is reportedly emerging. 

The New England Patriots are reportedly a team to watch in the Odell Beckham Jr. sweepstakes. 

Jeremy Fowler reports that the storied AFC East franchise "heavily evaluated" Beckham's free-agency market back in March. 

If the Patriots were interested then, they are probably interested now. 

"Interesting note from @JFowlerESPN regarding #Patriots and Odell Beckham Jr: "New England is worth watching because I'm told it heavily evaluated Beckham's market early in free agency in March." Added talks didn't go anywhere because of injury timeline," said Dakota Randall.

The Patriots, however, are going to have a tough time beating out teams like the Bills and Rams. 

Buffalo has been linked to OBJ all off-season because of the veteran's relationship with Von Miller. How fun would it be to see the Buffalo offense feature Stefon Diggs, Josh Allen and Beckham?

The Rams were previously a favorite, but they have struggled early on in the season. It's possible Beckham is losing interest in the NFC West franchise due to early-season struggles.
