Seahawks’ Pete Carroll drops big Odell Beckham hint

Odell Beckham Jr warms up

The Seattle Seahawks have been heavily linked to wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Coach Pete Carroll’s comments on Monday won’t do much to quiet that speculation.

Carroll was asked if the Seahawks had interest in Beckham and planned to put in a claim. The coach said everyone would “have to wait and see” but that the team was “aware of what’s going on and we’ve been involved to understand it and compete.”

The conclusion of Carroll’s statement may have been the most telling.

“So, I didn’t say yes or I didn’t say no. That’s just cause…you’ll see,” Carroll said, smiling.

That’s a pretty surprising admission. One would think that Carroll wouldn’t go out of his way to say it’s not a no unless the Seahawks were genuinely interested. We’ve heard that Beckham is also interested, and Russell Wilson wants to make it happen too.

The Seahawks could absorb Beckham’s cap hit if they claimed him on waivers, or they could hope he passes through and simply sign him themselves. Either way, Beckham landing in Seattle sounds very plausible. Carroll is only going to encourage that thinking with comments like these.
