Right now, Kansas City Chiefs fans are likely tired on two fronts: tired of waiting on Odell Beckham Jr. rumors without any official action or tired of the idea in the first place since they’re against the wide receiver joining the team.
For those in the former camp, the bad news is that Beckham, who was recently released by the Cleveland Browns, has decided he wants to take more time to come to a decision about his future franchise. Kim Jones reports that Beckham is expected to make a choice that’s likely “a few days away.” See the report below:
At this point, Beckham is likely choosing between the same handful of suitors that have been made known in various rumors swirling since Beckham looked like he might get his way and break free from the constraints of Cleveland’s offense—as he saw it, at least. The Green Bay Packers have been a favored team, but other teams have reportedly made their interest known as well including the Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, and Kansas City Chiefs are mentioned alongside them.
A mystery team could be in the mix since a recent report by The Athletic’s Jeff Howe said there were six teams involved in the bidding. Las Vegas oddsmakers have the Baltimore Ravens favored there, which could be a good signal.
The number of other teams involved likely have Chiefs Kingdom divided. For some, it’s good news knowing the Chiefs are up against so much competition for Beckham’s services as they see the wide receiver as a mercurial personality whose best years are behind him. For others, it’s nervous knowing the Chiefs might not come away with a receiver who could be a difference-maker on offense.
Here’s a sampling of how divided Chiefs fans are about Odell, beginning with those who are scratching their heads at the idea of chasing him in the first place. (If you’re going to make a point, making us laugh is appreciated and Taylor is a great follow.)
As for those in favor, these fans (and former players) say “aye!”
By the way, we’re not sure on which side of the fence Sterling Holmes would fall, but we’re happy with his graphic design efforts all the same.
Hopefully we learn something soon so we can all stop refreshing our Twitter feeds.
