The Miami Dolphins are eager to bring even more firepower to their already potent offense. According to Dolphins’ head coach Mike McDaniels, the Dolphins have recently made an offer to veteran wideout Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham reportedly visited the Dolphins last week but the two sides were unable to come to an agreement right away. He also attracted interest from several other teams including the Carolina Panthers and the New York Jets.

“We did make him an offer and business takes time, especially with players such as Odell, who’s had a phenomenal career, still has really good football in front of him and has options,” McDaniel said via Miami Herald. “So, I think those conversations will be ongoing. We’ll see where they go.”

The Dolphins have Pro Bowler Tyreek Hill and 2021’s first-round pick Jaylen Waddle as their top two receivers. They lost their No.3 wideout Cedrick Wilson Jr. in free agency, and it is believed that the organization is pursuing Beckham with this role in mind.

Once considered one of the best wide receivers in the game, Odell Beckham Jr’s production dipped in recent years due to injuries. Since 2019, the last season in which he reached the 1,000 receiving yards mark, Beckham played only 35 games and was forced to miss the entire 2022 campaign due to an ACL injury.

Beckham spent 2023 with the Baltimore Ravens, making 35 catches for 565 yards and three touchdowns.
