Last week, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones hinted that his team was about to sign wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. On Tuesday, Jones changed his tune during his weekly interview with the radio station 105.2 The Fan in Dallas.
“This morning, we have nothing [à annoncer] Jones said, adding, “The reality is that time is ticking and we are getting closer to the playoffs, so every day diminishes our chances of moving forward. »
If Beckham joined the Cowboys, the plan was to place him on the injured list after he spent a day on active training as he attempts a return to play after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee left in the last Super Bowl. By being placed on the injured list, he would have to miss four games, which would mean he would miss at least the first round of the playoffs if he signed a contract this week.
Last week, the Cowboys signed veteran receiver TY Hilton, in part because he was able to play right away. Hilton was out of uniform against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
