The Odell Beckham Jr. free agency process looks as though it will be dragged out even further than it already has.
On Thursday, ESPN NFL insider Dianna Russini reported that Beckham’s decision could come after all of Sunday’s Week 10 games come to a conclusion, per teams currently in discussions with the free-agent wide receiver.
These reports came following Wednesday claims that Beckham would take a “few days” to mull over his options.
The NFL world took to Twitter to react to this latest update from Russini.

This would make sense. He’s not going to sign anywhere in time to play Sunday. May as well wait and see if someone’s circumstances change and expand his market. Misses a week of potential pay, but the Browns are paying him anyway, so that’s not top priority. https://t.co/5cSnRfHPkJ

At this point in the week, even if Beckham signs with a team, it’s unlikely that he would be ready to suit up on Sunday. For this reason, it makes sense that the eighth-year wideout would wait to see if any on-field or contractual circumstances change over the course of Week 10.
The Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, two of the reported frontrunners to land Beckham, will face off this weekend — giving the free-agent receiver a unique opportunity to weigh his options. The Patriots, another one of his top choices, will take on his former Browns team. He’ll also likely keep an eye on the Saints and Chiefs as they take the field this weekend.
It’s unclear how much of an effect this weekend will have on Beckham’s decision, but prospective teams will certainly have this in the back of their minds on game day.
