Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has agreed to sign a one-year deal worth up to $18 million with the Baltimore Ravens.

The deal includes a $13.835 million signing bonus, a $1.165 million base salary, and $3 million in incentives.

The Ravens reportedly offered Beckham the contract last week and he was impressed with the figures.

The addition of Beckham is expected to improve Baltimore's win total from 9.6 to 10.0, according to SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti has been in frequent communication with Beckham, "pitching him on the idea of coming to Baltimore, the support he would have with the team, and the necessity of helping to square things with Lamar Jackson as well."

Jackson announced last month that he had officially requested a trade from the organization, but the team has remained in contact with him.

The move to sign Beckham shows the Ravens are serious about retaining their franchise quarterback and contending as well.

Beckham took the 2022 season off after tearing his ACL in Super Bowl LVI. He caught 27 passes for 305 yards and five touchdowns in eight games played for the Los Angeles Rams in 2021 on the way to their Super Bowl title.

Beckham burst onto the scene as a rookie in 2014, catching 91 passes for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in his first NFL season.

After five seasons with the New York Giants, OBJ was traded to the Cleveland Browns, where he played for two and a half seasons.

Despite the New York Jets being the favorite to land Beckham, he decided to pass on the official visit scheduled for this week.

Beckham told Josina Anderson that he was "feeling more love from the Ravens," even though he was set to visit with the Jets.

This move gives Baltimore a top-notch receiver to pair with Jackson and provides Beckham with an opportunity to prove himself as one of the league's elite receivers once again.
