The Seattle Seahawks have a strong interest in adding wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. a source told USA Today’s Mike Jones.

Quarterback Russel Wilson reportedly has urged Seattle’s front office to bring in Beckham, who can be claimed off waivers as early as Tuesday following his official release from the Cleveland Browns. Beckham went on waivers at 4pm.  If someone claims him within 24 hours, they are on the hook for the remainder of his $8 million contract this season. Pretty unlikely, therefor after 24 hours, he’s a free agent & can choose where he’d like to go.
