Odell Beckham Jr: Miami Dolphins to sign three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver

Share this post

Odell Beckham Jr has agreed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins, who are set to become the fifth team of the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver's NFL career.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported on Friday that the contract is worth up to $8.25m (£6.58m) as Beckham heads to South Beach after playing 14 games for the Baltimore Ravens during the regular season last year.

He bolsters a star-studded Miami offense that will see him unite with fellow receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle as the latest weapon for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

In doing so he joins a Dolphins team that had teased Super Bowl potential at times last season before being ravaged by defensive injuries down the stretch as they were ultimately stopped in their tracks by the eventual champion Kansas City Chiefs in the playoffs.

Beckham had similarly been part of a Ravens team touted as Super Bowl favourites after cruising to a 13-4 record, only to also be eliminated by the Chiefs.

The 31-year-old produced 35 catches for 565 yards and three touchdowns in 2023 before being released by the Ravens earlier this offseason.

Beckham Jr entered the NFL as the 12th overall pick for the New York Giants in 2014 before surpassing 1,000 receiving yards and making the Pro Bowl in three straight seasons as one of the league's marquee figures.

He was later traded to the Cleveland Browns in 2019, but managed just one 1,000-yard campaign before being limited by injury and eventually heading to the Los Angeles Rams midway through the 2021 season, by the end of which he had become a Super Bowl champion with Sean McVay's side.

The veteran wideout is now on his way to Miami as the latest addition to Mike McDaniel's explosive Dolphins attack.
