Odell Beckham Jr. has finally landed with a new team.

Beckham on Friday agreed to a deal with the Miami Dolphins, according to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. The contract is worth up to $8.25 million for the 2024 season.

Rapoport notes that at least one other team offered Beckham more money, but the veteran wide receiver felt the Dolphins were a better fit for him.

Beckham was released by the Baltimore Ravens in March. He has been linked to the Dolphins since, though he went out of his way to downplay those rumors a month ago. It is now safe to say there has been mutual interest for a while.

Beckham had 35 catches for 565 yards and 3 touchdowns in 14 games with the Ravens last season. He sat out the 2022 season due to a torn ACL. OBJ was linked to another AFC team earlier in the offseason, but he is joining Miami’s loaded wide receiver group instead.

The 31-year-old Beckham’s health will always be a question mark, but he should have plenty of chances to get open with Tyreek Hill and Jayden Waddle operating as the Dolphins’ top-two receiving options.
