Former Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. has reportedly set his sights on joining the Green Bay Packers after being recently being released by the Cleveland Browns.

According to NFL insider Jordan Schultz, Beckham Jr. could go to Wisconsin if no team claims him ahead of the 4 p.m. EST deadline on Tuesday.

“Breaking: Odell Beckham, Jr. has prioritized the #Packers as his No. 1 destination should he clear waivers, per sources,” wrote Schultz on Twitter.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur has not said publicly if he would be interested in acquiring Beckham Jr. They do need assistance at the wide receiver position behind Davante Adams. Randall Cobb and Allen Lazard are currently filling the backup role for Adams.

Previously, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Beckham Jr. is “likely to clear waivers” — an unexpected turn that Beckham would happily accept.

“He prefers to be a free agent,” according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio. ” The teams to watch, I’m told, are the (Seattle) Seahawks, the (San Francisco) 49ers, and the (New Orleans) Saints,” “And I’m told he prefers the Seattle Seahawks.”

Any team that claims Beckham Jr. off waivers would be on the hook for a $7.25 million cap hit for the remainder of the season and Cleveland will owe him just over four million dollars if he clears waivers.
