A week ago, before losing to Green Bay PackersThe Cowboys were the betting favorite to win the Beckham Sweepstakes.

We don’t know if losing to Green Bay made Beckham feel differently about the Cowboys, but we do know they’re still very interested in acquiring him. Jerry Jones spoke to the media on Tuesday and made it clear that Dallas is still in the mix.

While a lot of teams could benefit from adding a wide receiver of Beckham’s caliber, you could argue that the Cowboys have the greatest need in the wide receiver position. So much so that this week’s article from Alex Ballantine from Bleacher Report The Cowboys were described as the “best fit” of teams in the mix for Beckham.

Here’s what Ballentine had to say about why they are such a great match.

If the Cowboys can pull back this season, it could be a comeback on the Amari Cooper trade. Part of his handling had to do with running cover, but the Cowboys are losing his presence at the receiving corps. The spin-off revolves around CeeDee Lamb, and what was once a powerful weapon complement to Duck Prescott has become a one-man show.

The Cowboys have lost Cooper and Cedric Wilson to free agency this season, and their efforts to replace them have been in vain. Michael Gallup has just 16 catches for 170 yards this season and has yet to look like him after tearing his ACL last year.

Jalen Tolbert was supposed to fill the void with a third-round pick, but it didn’t make any impact. James Washington has yet to return after suffering from a broken foot at boot camp. In losses as close as the one the Packers dealt, it would help to have an upgraded receiving corps.

As long as OBJ is healthy, he will be the #2 receiver for Dallas from day one. As playing alongside Cooper Kupp last season showed, it’s a role he can do well. which has the third-best odds in the NFC to get to the Super Bowl, according to FiveThirtyEight’s forecasts.

There’s no denying that the Beckhams and the Cowboys would be a good match, but for the two to become a match would ultimately come down to two things.

  1. The Cowboys play well enough in the next two or three weeks to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders.

2) Dallas’ willingness to offer Beckham a long-term deal, rather than the high money one-year offer.

If the Cowboys can win their next two games and are willing to make a long-term commitment, there’s still a good chance Odell Beckham Jr. will be wearing a superstar this winter.
