In the past month the Cowboys have flirted with signing WR Odell Beckham Jr., perhaps the best free agent yet available. Several reports emerged, including one from QB Dak Prescott, who noted, “OBJ knows how much I love him.” Said and done, Beckham Jr. went to the Dallas facility the previous Monday and Prescott said Thursday that “the visit went well.” However, as noted, franchise owner Jerry Jones isn’t sure about formalizing the move.
That’s because OBJ, who suffered a torn ACL in SB LVI with the Rams last February, is currently not performing workouts for any team, and the Cowboys don’t want to make this acquisition blindly without being sure if the 30-year-old veteran is fully recovered. Prescott added Thursday that Beckham Jr. would be a boon to the team, but he also believes they can succeed enough if the signing doesn’t go through.
“If we get it, heck, yes, it’s going to help. Obviously, it would help to have it. He’s a great player,” Prescott told Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. “If he can come in and play 100% right now, we want him. And if not, I have a lot of confidence in the men we have,” Prescott concluded about an OBJ who also visited the facilities of Bills and Giants, his former team, but whose final decision is unknown on which team to play for the rest of 2022.

Mac Jones: “We all know we can play better”
With a 6-6 mark, heading to the end of the year the Patriots are more than alive in the playoff race. However, one thing is certain: if the hopes remain intact it is due to the good level of play shown by their defense, because the offense has been one of the biggest disappointments of this season. However, QB Mac Jones believes that New England still has time to change that narrative, and it would all start next Monday night, when they visit the Cardinals.
“I think all of us know that as players we can play much better, execute better, do everything better,” Jones said Thursday. “You have the things you want to improve on and the plan to fix them or improve them. It’s a constant routine and a battle with that. A lot of it is basic concepts. We have to finish strong, we have the guys to do it, we have the coaches to do it and it starts this week.”
Currently the offense of the Patriots is half down in items such as points per game (20.8), yards per game (336.7), air yards per game (231.8), rushing yards per game (231.8), among others. Honestly, it seems complicated that overnight they manage to eradicate all the problems they have shown during the year. But if Jones can start playing like he did in his rookie year, that would be a great starting point.
Can Mac Jones catapult the Patriots into the playoffs? What to expect from this offensive at the end of the year? We read you in the comments below this article and on our social networks.
