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.

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.

OBJ on Joe Burrow: "He's the GOAT… no, I'm playing. He won the 'chip for us. That was tremendous to be able to see…. I think he soothed a lot of pain that a lot of us [LSU] players have felt. He's forever a legend."— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) September 15, 2020
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.
