Odell Beckham Jr. is set to bring his skills to South Beach, as the former All-Pro wide receiver finalizes a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the deal is reportedly worth up to $8.25 million, with ESPN’s Marcel Louis-Jacques specifying it as a one-year, $3 million base deal that can escalate with incentives.

Beckham, 31, has previously played for the New York Giants (2014-18), Cleveland Browns (2019-21), Los Angeles Rams (2021), and Baltimore Ravens (2023).

During his tenure with the Baltimore Ravens last season, Beckham accumulated 35 receptions for 565 yards and three touchdowns. Although he hasn’t replicated the success of his early career, Beckham remains a valuable asset, particularly as a deep threat, evident in his career-high average of 16.1 yards per reception last season.

In Miami, Beckham won’t bear the burden of being the primary receiver. Under the guidance of offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel, the Dolphins boast a formidable receiving duo in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, both surpassing 1,000 receiving yards last season, with Hill leading the NFL in yards and touchdowns.

Beckham is expected to contribute alongside Hill and Waddle, especially following the departure of Cedrick Wilson Jr., the Dolphins’ previous No. 3 receiver, who signed with the New Orleans Saints.

In addition to Beckham, the Dolphins have bolstered their receiving corps by acquiring tight end Jonnu Smith and retaining reserve wideouts Braxton Berrios and River Cracraft this offseason.

Looking ahead, the Dolphins’ quarterback situation, particularly with Tua Tagovailoa entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2024, remains a key consideration. However, with the addition of star receivers Hill, Waddle, and now Beckham, there’s optimism for Tagovailoa to excel in the upcoming season.
