Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys remain interested in landing Odell Beckham Jr. despite the free agent receiver’s removal from a recent flight.
“His overall team compatibility, his judgment, his behavior is not an issue with him,” the Cowboys owner said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. “It is with many. It isn’t with him.”
Jones said Beckham is scheduled to visit with the Cowboys (8-3) this Monday, which is after three-time Pro Bowl selection is reportedly meeting with the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills.
“I think we’re moving full steam ahead,” Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday when asked about the pursuit of Beckham.
Beckham, sidelined since tearing his ACL in last year’s Super Bowl win, was removed from a flight on Sunday at the Miami International Airport.
Police said Beckham was “in and out of consciousness” and refused to deplane when asked. Beckham’s attorney, Daniel Davillier, said his client was asleep and the incident was caused by an “overzealous” flight attendant.
Beckham, 30, has 531 career catches for 7,367 yards and 56 touchdowns in 96 games with the Giants (2014-18), Cleveland Browns (2019-21) and Los Angeles Rams (2021).
