Dak Prescott says he contacted Odell Beckham Jr: “He knows how much I want him here”

Dak Prescott is the latest member of the Dallas Cowboys to release interest in the Texans’ signing of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. The QB revealed on Tuesday that he has been in contact with Beckham, who has been heavily linked to the Cowboys recently.

“He knows how much I want him here,” Prescott said, according to Jon Machota of The Athletic. “I definitely sent some messages. There’s been a little bit of back and forth. Just making sure he understands that we want him here.”

Owner Jerry Jones confirmed Sunday that Beckham will visit the Cowboys after Thanksgiving. The wideout reportedly also has an upcoming meeting with the New York Giants.

Jones declined to discuss on Tuesday whether there have been negotiations with the free agent, but said he believes a potential addition like Beckham would be helpful to a 7-3 team like the Cowboys.

“If you can improve this team now and it’s within reason, you should do it. And we have a chance,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, per Machota.

Beckham, who suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in February’s Super Bowl, should be ready for an on-field return in early December.

The Cowboys head into Week 12 behind the Philadelphia Eagles (9-1) in the fight for the NFC East.
