Cowboys’ Jerry Jones Shares Details of Conversation With Odell Beckham Jr.
After Dallas’s 28-20 win over the Giants on Thursday, Dallas owner Jerry Jones told media that he spoke with the wide receiver on the phone that day. Jones did not give any details about the conversation.
The one thing Jones noted was about Beckham’s current health–the 30-year-old has been recovering from an ACL tear he suffered during February’s Super Bowl LVI while he played for the Rams.
While Beckham should be healthy by December , Jones said that he is still unsure if the receiver will play this season.
“We’ll see. Jones spoke out about Beckham’s knee. “I haven’t gotten the benefit of his rehab work and where he is.”
Jones also said he wants to learn more about Beckham’s ACL surgery, which could be a topic of discussion when the receiver is expected to visit Dallas next week. Jones did not confirm the date for the former Browns, Rams, and Giants receiver’s visit to Dallas.
Various Cowboys players have outwardly pitched Beckham to join a star-studded offense in Dallas. Running back Ezekiel Elliott expressed his desire for the receiver to join the team after Thursday night’s win.
Beckham started his career with three straight Pro Bowl selections while in New York. After a move to Cleveland, Beckham was unable to recapture the magic of his New York career. He eventually played a role with the Super Bowl-winning Rams before being released.
