Dak Prescott reveals the Cowboys’ meeting with Odell Beckham Jr. ‘went well’

Dak Prescott reveals the Cowboys’ meeting with Odell Beckham Jr. ‘went well’ and claims the franchise wants him… but only if he ‘can come in and play right now’ amid Dallas’ ‘concerns over the free agent’s fitness’

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott spoke positively of his team’s meeting with Odell Beckham Jr. earlier this week. Despite owner and GM, Jerry Jones’s lack of certainty in the Super Bowl champion’s knee, Prescott told local media Thursday, Beckham’s visit ‘went well.’

‘Obviously, it would help to have him [Odell Beckham]; He’s a great player,’ Prescott said.

‘If he can come in and play right now 100 percent, we want him. But I’ve got a lot of confidence in the guys we have.’

Dak Prescott spoke positively of the Dallas Cowboys’ meetings with WR Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham is reportedly nowhere near ready to play, that’s if Cowboys star Micah Parsons is to be believed.

The All-Pro pass rusher told the media Wednesday that Beckham won’t be ready to play for five more weeks.

That means the Cowboys – second in the NFC East at 9-3 – will likely need to reach the Wild Card round, if not the divisional round of the playoffs if Beckham is to see the field this season.

When asked about signing a player coming off a major knee injury without seeing them work out, Jones told local radio station 105.3 The Fan that he’s ‘not confident at all.’

Furthermore, Jones hesitated Tuesday when asked if he thinks Beckham could play this season.

‘I would say, I’m going to kind of keep that one at bay,’ Jones told The Fan. ‘I would say that’s a point of the discussion.’

The free-agency tour of Dallas, New York and Buffalo comes after Beckham was kicked off a Los Angeles-bound flight from Miami last month after officials said he failed to respond to requests to buckle his seatbelt and appeared to be unconscious.

As a result of Beckham’s ejection, the flight was delayed roughly 90 minutes, to the dismay of other passengers.

The Giants have confirmed Beckham’s December 1 meeting to DailyMail.com, saying he met with Coach Brian Daboll and had his surgically repaired knee examined by team doctors.
