Odell Beckham Jr. could end up signing with the Dallas Cowboys, a result that passer DeMarcus Lawrence favors. However, given everything that’s happened so far, Lawrence doesn’t think his team needs to get caught up in the moment.
The Cowboys are 8-3 and look like real Super Bowl contenders. For Lawrence, that’s all that matters. If they sign Beckham it would be a good addition, but he doesn’t think the team needs to commit to the ‘circus’ as he called it.
According to Jon Machota, Lawrence wants to sign Beckham, but isn’t sure the end cost is worth it at the moment:
“It’s fair to say I’m trying to get to a Super Bowl. So if he can come and help us do it, yeah, I’ll take it. But if we’re just gonna do a circus, like, no, I don’t do it. I’m focused on this team.
Beckham recently met with the team and his medical information was subsequently leaked, which could cause some of what Lawrence sees as circus.
Many members of the team, such as Micah Parsons, Dak Prescott, Jerry Jones and others, participated in signing Beckham, another aspect of the circus.
Following the reunion and leaked personal information, it seems unlikely that Beckham will end up in a Cowboys uniform. Maybe it’s for the best, especially when it comes to DeMarcus Lawrence.
What are the Dallas Cowboys’ chances of winning the Super Bowl?
If they were to sign Odell Beckham Jr., the odds would likely increase a bit, especially if he’s healthy enough to contribute to an offense that needs a reliable second receiver.
Right now, the Cowboys are +700 to win it all, according to VegasInsider. They are behind the Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.
According to FiveThirtyEight’s projection model, they also have the fourth best odds with a 16% chance of winning the Lombardi Trophy. It’s behind the Eagles, Bills and Chiefs in that order as well.
They have a deep squad that is packed with talent in almost every position. Signing Beckham would help, but to Lawrence’s credit, it’s already a Super Bowl-caliber team.
