Ezekiel Elliott, Micah Parsons “want” Odell Beckham on Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys aren’t even trying to hide it: They want Odell Beckham Jr.

A day after owner Jerry Jones praised the Star Wideout and said he would “look pretty good in a Cowboys uniform,” two of the team’s most prominent players stepped up recruitment.

“We want him,” Ezekiel Elliott told reporters on Wednesday. “We want OBJ”

All-Pro linebacker Micah Parsons elaborated further by hinting to Beckham that he could help the Cowboys win the Super Bowl.

“S— we can use him,” Parsons said. “I think he’s a great player. He will expand this offensive. He’s a guy you want on the team alongside all the other critics that people make up and about him. He can add real value to the team and help us do what we want to do.

“If the guy in the market says he wants to play and win games, then s— so do I. I want to win it just as badly as you do. If you want to win games, come win games over here. Help us get to the bowl you want. I want him.”

This mutual flirtation could soon lead to an actual contract.

The free-agent receiver recently mentioned four teams — the Cowboys, buffalo bills, Green Bay packers and New York Giants – which he is considering. FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer recently reported that Beckham is expected to be “completely clear of his cruciate ligament rupture” by the end of the week.

While the Cowboys are firmly 6-2 in the NFC playoff mix, they could certainly use a boost on offense. Her passing game has been particularly underpowered this season, averaging 190.6 yards per game (25th in the NFL). Dallas hadn’t eclipsed 25 points until their previous game against the rebuilding Bears. Additionally, leading receiver CeeDee Lamb has not stepped into the No. 1 option the club envisioned when they picked No. 17 overall in 2020.

It’s difficult to project what Beckham, 30, has in store as he works his way back from a second cruciate ligament tear. He hasn’t been a Pro Bowler in six years, but he shone in his midseason cameo with the Los Angeles Rams last year. In 12 games, including the playoffs, he had 48 receptions, 593 yards and seven touchdowns.

He’ll take a close look at two of his apparent finalists on Sunday when Dallas takes on the Green Bay Packers (3-6) in “America’s Game of the Week” (FOX, 4:25 p.m. ET).
