With the Odell Beckham Jr. sweepstakes expected to come to a close sometime after Thanksgiving, Buffalo Bills linebacker Von Miller believes his team has one key advantage.
The OBJ lottery is heating up with reports stating that the star wide receiver will be taking visits to prospective teams following the holiday.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport believes the Cowboys and Giants are the favorites to land OBJ at the moment.
Though most of the teams listed above are Super Bowl contenders, the Bills have a unique edge – Bills Mafia.
The Mafia’s impact has been on display all season, but especially during last week’s Snowpocalypse when the City of Good Neighbors showed up in droves to help players get to the airport on time.
Miller said on Voncast that he believes Bills Mafia could make the difference for Beckham.
“You know he said he was going to sign at the beginning of December. You guys will just have to wait and see. I don’t want to spill no tea or nothing like that. Let him go see the Cowboys, let him go see the Giants, but wait until he sees Bills Mafia and what we’re doing here in Buffalo, I think he’s going to be blown away.”

Buffalo has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to recruiting tools for Beckham. Josh Allen has the best arm in the league and the Bills are the most well-rounded team in the league. Factor in the best fanbase the NFL has to offer and it seems like an easy decision.
With a decision looming in the next few weeks, Buffalo’s best recruiting pitch must come with its play. If the Bills elevate their game over its next few opportunities, that should make Buffalo all the more desirable as Beckham’s future home.
