Odell Beckham Jr. hosted a private workout in front of 12 NFL teams on Friday.
While an incredible one-handed catch by the three-time Pro Bowler might’ve been the highlight of the session, a tweet posted late last night about Beckham’s fitness has gone viral on social media.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler announced Friday night that he’d talked to several people who attended Beckham’s private workout. One source reportedly described OBJ as a “combination” of two of the game’s most physically gifted athletes.
“One noted how noticeably muscular Beckham looks now, likening him to a combination of Saquon Barkley and Deebo Samuel,” Fowler tweeted.

While Beckham does appear to be in great shape, football fans in the replies to Fowler’s tweet seemed confused as to why the specific comparison was drawn.
“There’s no way he’s a combo of Saquon and Deebo unless he put on about 40 lbs of muscle,” one twitter user said.

“Saquon Barkley & Deebo??? Nah his agent typed this 1000%” Eric wrote.

“Is your source Odell’s agent?” tweeted another fan.

The Dallas Cowboys, one of the teams most commonly linked to OBJ throughout the 2022 season, were noticeably absent at the receiver’s workout Friday.
That doesn’t mean the club has lost interest, though. Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram said yesterday that the Cowboys are “comfortable with the player” and don’t need to see more in order to pursue him.
