1. WR Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham is absolutely good enough to be on an NFL roster next year. At this stage of his career, he's a quality No. 3 wide receiver for a passing offense that has more established studs ahead of him. There are two main factors working against the immensely talented veteran as a 2024 free agent.

His price tag was well north of eight figures last year, and his solid play didn't live up to the price. Beckham will likely need to take a big pay cut in 2024 to sign, which it is unknown if he will do. His durability is a question as well. Beckham will be 32 years old, had injuries in the past, and hasn't played 16 games in a season since 2019 with the Cleveland Browns.

Will the Baltimore Ravens sign Odell Beckham Jr?

The Ravens have declared they intend to pursue a reunion with Beckham, but they could change their minds if they either are unable to meet his asking price or select a young player with some aplomb in the 2024 NFL Draft. Both of thee scenarios are veyr realistic.

Beckham's market would then be limited to contenders who both need a third wide receiver and are willing to give him a big lump sum to do so. Even if the show-stopping alien we saw early in his career is gone, this reworked version of Beckham may not be a lock to return to a contender next year.
