Dallas Cowboys ‘Full Steam Ahead’ in Pursuit of Odell Beckham Jr., Says Coach Mike McCarthy
Any concerns about the Dallas Cowboys pulling away from the race to sign Odell Beckham Jr. as a free-agent wide receiver have been dispelled. However, there are still other reasons to be concerned.
Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy stated Monday that the Cowboys still have a high level of interest for Beckham – and that despite the incident at Miami’s airport, they are “full steam ahead” in their recruitment of OBJ.
On Sunday Beckham was seen being taken by police officers through an airport. He had allegedly been kicked off his flight from Miami, California to Los Angeles.
As a result of a police investigation from police ,, we are now being told that Beckham was either unconscious or asleep on the plane. Flight attendants tried to get him to fasten his seatbelt prior to takeoff. The report states that they called the fire and police departments to help Beckham out of concern for his safety and health.
After refusing exit the plane “several time”, everyone on board got out, including Beckham. He was then taken to the “non secure area” of the terminal. “
The free agent will visit the Giants, Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys in the coming days as he moves closer to deciding where he will call home.
