According to an insider, the Seahawks are interested in bringing in a three-time Pro Bowler.
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Seattle Seahawks are interested in signing star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. whenever he is released by the Cleveland Browns. According to Florio, the Saints and 49ers are two other top contenders for Beckham.
“The Saints did certainly speak with the Browns about a possible deal, and numerous sources feel that if/when he becomes available, the Saints will try to sign him,” Florio said. “We’ve been told that the 49ers and Seahawks are two other clubs to keep an eye on.

The Seahawks are presently No. 10 in the waiver list, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, which means that nine other teams have a chance to claim Beckham ahead of Seattle. Beckham’s financial situation is a little more confusing, as it looks that if a team claims him, they will be relieved of his contract obligations.
Beckham’s five-year, $90 million contract has two seasons left.
Beckham’s pay for 2021 is $14.5 million, and his five-year, $90 million contract, which goes through 2023, still has two seasons left on it. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the team claiming Beckham’s revised salary makes him “extremely claimable.”
