Call it Odell Beckham Jr. Day in and around Dallas, where the Cowboys kicked off a schedule of events Monday morning with the intent of luring the free agent receiver to sign with the team for the final regular-season games and playoffs.
Beckham’s agent confirmed he would be at The Star for a medical check-up, meet with team officials and cap the evening with a trip to the Dallas Mavericks’ NBA game with Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott.
Head coach Mike McCarthy and owner Jerry Jones echoed Prescott’s bold push for the team to land Beckham, who has not played this season while recovering from his second career ACL tear. The knee injury took place during the Super Bowl as a member of the Los Angeles Rams in February nearly 11 months ago.
“Hopefully an agreement can be worked out. I think it’ll be great to get him in the building,” McCarthy said Friday.
