Bell adds that the Cowboys, seen as the standout ahead of the week of Beckham’s three visits, could move to make the long-rumored signing after their Week 15 game against the Jaguars. While Beckham is moving toward a multi-year deal, Jones said the focus will be on the Cowboys agreement for the rest of this season.

Beckham tweeted a pawn emoji after the visit, and although the same kind of leaks about his health haven’t surfaced after his visit to the Giants and Bills, rumors linking him to a New York suitor have died down.

Beckham is coming off a turbulent 2021 that saw him claw his way out of Cleveland, but the LSU alum’s form during the postseason has propelled that market. The former Giants first baseman topped 100 yards in the Rams’ NFC Championship win and was on pace to match that performance in Super Bowl LVI, before he was injured in the second quarter.
