Beckham, 30, last took the field during the Los Angeles Rams' win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI. He opened the game with a touchdown but went down with a torn ACL at the end of the first half.
Thirteen months removed from ACL surgery, Beckham is ready to make a comeback. It's no surprise that interests the Patriots given the state of their wide receiver room. With Jakobi Meyers and Nelson Agholor set to hit the free-agent market on March 15, the depth chart consists of DeVante Parker, Tyquan Thornton, and Kendrick Bourne
The Patriots have been linked to Beckham for several years and came close to signing him ahead of the 2021 season. Beckham revealed that Bill Belichick called him to try to get him to come to Foxboro.
Beckham tallied 44 catches for 537 yards and five touchdowns during the 2021 season with the Rams and Cleveland Browns.
