The Cincinnati Bengals are talking about Odell Beckham Jr. after he commented on Joe Burrow’s Instagram post lately, which would have been impossible to predict.
Burrow threw out a cryptic “My spidey sense is starting to tingle a bit” comment on his latest post. Interestingly, Beckham was one of the first people to comment on the post and simply said: “The one.”
Normally, this would be completely meaningless. However, Twitter took it up for a variety of reasons. One, both guys are LSU brothers (they also had a moment after LSU won the national championship under Burrow). Two, despite suffering an injury during the Super Bowl, Beckham is still a free agent and could be forced to settle for a one-year, prove-it deal.
Given the depth of their wideout corps, the Bengals don’t require Beckham. But it’s entertaining to consider, even though it’s cool that big-name veterans may consider Cincinnati as a possible ring destination.
