How would he fit with the Vikings?

The Minnesota Vikings just got rid of one diva receiver, so attaining another one via trade might not be what they are looking for at the moment.

Odell Beckham Jr.’s outstanding career so far has come with plenty of controversies. This is something that will not fit in well within the Vikings’ locker room.

If the coaching staff decides to make this sort of splash, then it has the potential to do an untold amount of good to the offense. Stefon Diggs might be very good, but he is not on the same level as Beckham when both are at the top of their game.

Pairing Beckham with Adam Thielen and Tajae Sharp is a potent threesome for quarterback Kirk Cousins to utilize. Add to that the tight end tandem of Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith Jr., running back Dalvin Cook and the potential arrival of Washington Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams, then it could be one of the most destructive offenses in the NFL.

A lot needs to happen to make this dream a reality. This is a roster that has been on the cusp of greatness countless times over the years before ultimately falling at the final hurdle. Having someone like Beckham to turn the game on its head and create mismatches elsewhere will do their chances of making a Super Bowl run the world of good.

Vikings’ fans would be salivating at the prospect of having a weapon like Beckham, as would their quarterback. Cousins lost his most significant downfield threat this offseason and even though Sharp can provide production, much more will be needed.
