Three-time Pro-Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr is still a free agent, mostly because he’s recovering from torn ACL he suffered in Super Bowl LVI, which means speculation about where he’ll play in 2022 is rampant.

There have been numerous rumors connecting OBJ to the Green Bay Packers, while others have suggested that he could return to the Los Angeles Rams (where he finished the 2021 season).

On Monday, Beckham added to the wild speculation by commenting on a photo that Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow posted on Instagram.

OBJ commented “The one” on Burrow’s photo, which instantly led to folks suggesting that Beckham wants to play with Burrow in Cincinnati.

It’s certainly possible that OBJ would like to sign with the Bengals, but his comment on an Instagram photo of Burrow absolutely isn’t a signal that Beckham is trying to land in Cincy.

This is just one former LSU star showing love to another LSU star. OBJ and Burrow obviously never played together in Baton Rouge, but they’ve been big supporters of each other over the years.

The Bengals are focused right now on figuring out safety Jessie Bates’ contract situation, not on signing a soon-to-be 30-year-old wide receiver who is recovering from a torn ACL.

OBJ can still be a productive player, but the Bengals have other priorities at the moment.
