Free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught Chiefs Kingdom’s attention during Super Bowl LVII when he tweeted about Kadarius Toney. But he had another tweet during the Super Bowl as well that’s making its rounds within Chiefs Kingdom.

After one Twitter user posted a picture of Odell in a Chiefs uniform with the caption, “Come on @obj… you know what to do,” Odell responded to the tweet by writing, “See u in march…..”

Beckham Linked to Chiefs During Season

The Chiefs have been linked to Odell Beckham Jr. dating back to November mainly due to NFL pundits naming them as an ideal landing spot for OBJ. But the former All-Pro receiver has also made it publicly known in the past that he would consider playing for the Chiefs.

Odell, who suffered a torn ACL during the 2022 Super Bowl as a member of the Los Angeles Rams, hadn’t fully recovered yet during the 2022 season, which is why he remained a free agent for the entirety of the season.

Rumors swirled prior to the Super Bowl that Odell might be signed by the Chiefs, who were tending to injuries in their receiver room at that time. But Kansas City never signed him despite recent workout videos showing Beckham closing in on 100% health.

Because Odell is a free agent, he’s free to sign with any team prior to the start of free agency. But he’ll first need to prove he has fully recovered from his torn ACL before he makes an NFL comeback.

As it stands, Kansas City has receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, and Skyy Moore under contract through 2023. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman, and Justin Watson are set to be free agents, but the expectation is that JuJu will re-sign with the Chiefs.

During his career, Odell has accumulated 513 receptions on 880 targets for 7,367 yards and 56 receiving touchdowns, according to Pro Football Reference. During the 2021 season — his last full season in the NFL — he registered 44 catches, 537 yards, and 5 receiving touchdowns in six regular season games with the Cleveland Browns and eight with the Rams.

In the four playoff games Los Angeles played in during its 2022 Super Bowl run, Odell had 21 catches on 26 targets for 288 yards and 2 receiving touchdowns.
