1. The NY Jets can sign Odell Beckham Jr.

This is easily the most probable scenario on this list. Aaron Rodgers has made it pretty clear that he wants Odell Beckham Jr. in New York. Beckham hasn't exactly been shy about his interest in the Jets, either.

The Athletic's Connor Hughes reported on Wednesday that there is mutual interest between the two sides. At this stage, Hughes suggests that the only holdup is "finding a number that works" for both sides.

Hughes later responded to a tweet that said a Rodgers/Beckham duo was coming soon for the Jets, stating, "I would be surprised if it wasn't." The smoke surrounding Beckham and the Jets has reached its highest levels of the offseason.

Much like with Hopkins, there are, of course, red flags with Beckham. The former All-Pro wide receiver hasn't played since tearing his ACL for the second time in Super Bowl LVI over a year ago. By the time he steps on the field in September, it will have been nearly 20 months since his last appearance.

He also hasn't recorded over 1,000 yards in a season since his last year with the Browns in 2019. It's hard to say exactly what the Jets can expect from Beckham, even if healthy, in 2023.

Still, the upside is obvious. This is a former three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver who, at his peak, was one of the most dynamic offensive weapons in the NFL. That talent is still there — it's just a matter of if his body can hold up.

The Jets clearly want Beckham. Beckham certainly seems to want the Jets. The Elijah Moore trade makes this move feel almost inevitable.
