But nearly a day after he became a free agent, the former Cleveland Browns wide receiver remains unsigned.

As for where Beckham might eventually wind up, there have been multiple teams that have already been linked to the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. With that in mind, let's take a list of Beckham's potential suitors and how he might fit with each.

Green Bay Packers

If Beckham is looking to play for a contender while also receiving his fair share of targets, it would be tough to find a better fit than Green Bay. While the Packers possess arguably the top wide receiver in the NFL in Davante Adams, their depth at the position is otherwise lacking.

In going to Green Bay, Beckham would be joining a 7-2 team and the reigning NFL MVP in quarterback Aaron Rodgers. According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Packers have offered the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver a minimum contract, but the two sides have yet to come to terms on a deal.

New Orleans Saints

Who says you can't go home? Now a free agent for the first time in his career, Beckham -- a New Orleans native -- now has the opportunity to play for his hometown team.

What's more is that the Saints have a glaring need at wide receiver, with Michael Thomas out of the season with an ankle injury. The only potential hangup for the former LSU standout might be New Orleans' quarterback situation, with Trevor Siemian currently starting in place of an injured Jameis Winston.

Seattle Seahawks

In D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, the Seahawks already lay claim to one of the best wide receiver duos in the NFL. But Seattle has never been shy to add talent to its offense in an attempt to keep pace in the ultra-competitive NFC West.

It's also not hard to imagine Beckham fitting well alongside quarterback Russell Wilson, who is set to return to the Seahawks' lineup this weekend after missing the past three games with a finger injury. At this point, the only question might be whether Seattle's 3-5 record is good enough to meet the 29-year-old receiver's reported desire to play for a contender.

Kansas City Chiefs

During Beckham's two-plus seasons in Cleveland, quarterback Baker Mayfield appeared unable -- or unwilling -- to take advantage of the wide receiver's ability to "freelance" on routes. The same likely couldn't be said of Patrick Mahomes, who is perhaps best known for his ability to extend plays and go off-script.

At this point in the 2021 season, it's hard to tell whether Beckham or the Chiefs need each other more. While the two-time second-team All-Pro is looking to revive his career, Kansas City is looking to bounce back from a sluggish start and restore its status as one of the most potent offenses in the NFL.

New England Patriots

Over the course of his time in New England, Bill Belichick has built a reputation for taking chances on top-level talent in "buy low" situations. Even considering his production -- or lack thereof -- it would be tough to argue that signing Beckham as a free agent wouldn't qualify as just that.

While the Patriots invested heavily in their receiving corps last offseason, none of the talents they acquired possess the same dynamic ability as Beckham. It's also worth noting that while New England faces Cleveland this weekend, Beckham likely wouldn't be eligible to play at this point in the week.
