Bills GM Brandon Beane Gives Hopeful Update on Odell Beckham Jr.
The Buffalo Bills are now past the trade deadline and fans can now focus on the current roster, which now includes running back Nyheim Hines.
The Bills traded running back Zack Moss and a conditional sixth round pick for Hines on Tuesday, just before the 4 pm trade deadline. The Bills also traded for Atlanta Falcons safety Dean Marlowe, as he returns to Buffalo.
Still, even though fans believe the Bills have the best roster in the National Football League, they still have one name on their mind.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham Jr. had ACL surgery in February, so it's likely he wouldn't return to the field until some time in December, which means he would be a nice addition for a team looking to add one last piece just before the start of the postseason.
OBJ, as he's commonly referred to as, has been rumored to a few teams, including the Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs and yes, the Bills.
While edge rusher Von Miller has been clamoring for OBJ since August, it's been unclear how much interested there is with general manager Brandon Beane and his staff.
Beane, however, did provide a pretty sizable update on the Odell Beckham Jr. situation.
Beane appeared on Adam Schein's podcast today, and said that he had talked with Beckham Jr.'s agent.
Beane said that they will see where this goes.
Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio said this week that he keeps hearing that it will be Buffalo for OBJ, "it's just a matter of time."
The cost would be a stumbling block, as we don't know for sure if OBJ wants a longer deal or a one-year rental contract. The Rams and Packers need him the most but the Bills give him the best chance to win another Super Bowl...
