There appear to be three final candidates for the Odell Beckham Jr. sweepstakes.

A day after clearing waivers, Beckham is reportedly “honing in” on the Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers and the New Orleans Saints as the three-time Pro Bowler looks to make a decision regarding his next team. ESPN reported Wednesday that Beckham‘s decision could be finalized before the end of the day. 

Beckham hit free agency after the Cleveland Browns released him on Monday. 

Beckham‘s tenure with the Browns was hardly spectacular. In two-plus seasons, Beckham caught 114 catches for 1,586 yards and seven touchdowns. The Browns cut Beckham after the wideout reportedly made repeated trade requests and after Beckham‘s father, Odell Beckham Sr., posted a video on social media that featured a series of clips of his son not getting the ball while wide open.

In six games this season, the younger Beckham has only caught 17 catches for 232 yards. 

Beckham prefers landing with a playoff contender, according to ESPN. Of the three finalists, the Packers have the best record at 7-2.
