The Baltimore Ravens have offered Odell Beckham Jr. a one-year deal

The Baltimore Ravens made the announcement on Sunday that free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has signed a one-year contract with the team.

Beckham Jr’s. deal is supposedly worth up to $18 million, with $15 million ensured, as indicated by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo and ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Beckham Jr., 30, took to Instagram after the announcement to post pictures of his son sporting a Ravens jersey and hat.

After tearing his ACL while playing for the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI, the three-time Pro Bowler missed all of last season.

In the 2014 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected him with the 12th overall pick. The 2014 Rookie of the Year was traded to the Cleveland Browns in 2019, in an injury-plagued stint of two-plus seasons.

Beckham Jr. signed a one-year contract with the Rams in November 2021 after his Browns contract was terminated.

Beckham Jr. caught 21 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns for the Super Bowl champion Rams during their postseason run.

Beckham Jr. has appeared in 96 games during his career and has racked up 531 receptions, 367 yards, and 56 touchdowns.

His signing follows Lamar Jackson’s announcement earlier this month that he had requested a trade from the Ravens.

“As of March 2nd, I requested a trade from the Ravens organization for which the Ravens has not been interested in meeting my value, any and everyone that’s has met me or been around me know I love the game of football and my dream is to help a team win the super bowl,” 26-year-old Jackson wrote in a post on social media.

On March 7, Baltimore applied the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson subsequent to neglecting to settle on a long-term agreement throughout the last two years.

Jackson is free to negotiate with other teams because of the tag. However, if he makes an offer to another team, the Ravens have five days to either match the deal or get two first-round picks in exchange. For the 2023 season, the non-exclusive tag has a salary cap of $32.4 million.

On March 7, Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta stated that he hoped the two parties could reach an agreement on a long-term contract.

“We will continue to negotiate in good faith with Lamar, and we are hopeful that we can strike a long-term deal that is fair to both Lamar and the Ravens,” DeCosta said in a statement. “Our ultimate goal is to build a championship team with Lamar Jackson leading the way for many years to come.”
