Von Miller expressed concern about what signing Odell Beckham Jr would do to the Bills’ salary cap

Instead of continuing his NFL career, the receiver chose to focus on his ACL surgery.

Since he had offseason ACL surgery, the veteran receiver is still a free agent.

In free agency, the Bills signed linebacker Von Miller to a six-year, $120 million contract after he won a Super Bowl with the Rams last season.

Now that he’s set to try for the Super Bowl with one of the AFC’s top contenders, the Buffalo Bills, he’s hoping his pal, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., will come play with him there.

Beckham Jr. tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during the Rams’ Super Bowl victory and has spent the whole summer recovering from surgery.

Miller is rooting for his old Rams teammate, Beckham Jr., to join him in Buffalo as he continues his recovery from injury.

“Odell is one of my good mates… we go back six, seven years,” Miller said of Odell on Thursday’s episode of The Pat McAfee Show.

The Bills are willing to welcome him with open arms. Having him here “would be the cherry on top and would throw us over the top,” Miller said.

After being cut by the Browns in the midst of the season, Beckham Jr. played in eight games for the Rams. Beckham Jr. averaged almost 11 yards per catch in his eight games with the Los Angeles Rams, catching 27 passes for 305 yards and five touchdowns.

The soon-to-be 30-year-old has the potential to be a game-changer for the Bills if he can demonstrate his health. Beckham Jr. will remain in rehab for the time being while he anticipates his next opportunity this season.
