Wide receiver Odell Beckham has finally found a new team and is heading back to the AFC North, this time in purple and black.
Beckham has agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth up to $18 million with the Baltimore Ravens, NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport, Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo reported Sunday. The team later announced the news.
The deal includes a $13.835 million signing bonus, $1.165 million base salary and $3 million in reachable incentives, Pelissero added. The veteran will make at least $15 million and as much as $18 million.
The Super Bowl champion had several suitors last year but chose to bide his time and focus on his recovery instead.
Beckham has made headlines and caught touchdowns in equal measure over eight seasons with the Giants, Browns, and Rams, racking up 7,367 yards and 56 touchdowns since he entered the league in 2014. He also averages 13.9 yards per reception, and at 30, still has a lot left in him.
Beckham's decision to sign with the Ravens certainly blindsided at least one team: the New York Jets, who planned to host the three-time Pro Bowler for a visit starting Sunday night. This would have included a physical and a discussion about what he could expect in a potential Aaron Rodgers-led offense, according to Rapoport.
However, the Ravens swooped in with the money, Rapoport added.
Now, if quarterback Lamar Jackson stays in Baltimore, this duo could spell trouble for defenses across the league.
