Odell Beckham Jr. and Lamar Jackson might never play on the same Baltimore Ravens team together.
The wide receiver signed a one-year deal with the team over the weekend that could be worth up to $18 million. He hopes that he and the 2019 NFL MVP will meet on the field in 2023.
Beckham said at his first news conference on Thursday at the team's practice facility, "The goal is to come here and have that chance with him."
Beckham once waved to the camera and said Jackson's name. Beckham chose to join the Ravens even though Jackson hasn't signed the non-exclusive franchise tag contract yet.
Beckham and the Ravens started talking last fall, when Baltimore was trying to save a season with little offensive punch and Beckham was trying to come back from tearing his ACL.
Talks kept going during the summer, and the team met with Beckham in person at the owners meetings in Arizona last month.
Beckham said that Bisciotti, Harbaugh, and DeCosta gave him no guarantees that Jackson would be the team's quarterback next year, even though everyone hopes that will be the case.
Beckham said, "If you look at the other things I did, you'll see that everything was uncertain." "Once again, I would assume that everything would work out."
