The Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers are reportedly among the teams interested in New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported Wednesday that Beckham is available for "the right price," with those three clubs expected to be firmly in the mix:

The "right price" has not been disclosed, but it won't be cheap. After all, the three-time Pro Bowler has been one of the NFL's top wideouts since he entered the league in 2014.

Beckham has four 1,000-yard seasons, with the lone exception being 2017, when an ankle injury limited him to four games. He still has 44 career touchdown receptions in just 59 regular-season games.

He bounced back this past season by hauling in 77 catches for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in just 12 games (quad injury). He also threw two passes for 106 yards and two scores.

One of the biggest knocks on Beckham has been his durability, as he has played in 16 regular-season games just once. Still, teams interested in Beckham will have to make New York an offer it can't refuse, as it was just last August that the Giants signed him to a record five-year, $95 million extension.

Not long after the ink dried, though, Beckham's future with the organization came into question when he told ESPN's Josina Anderson it was "a tough question" when asked if he was truly happy in New York (starting at the 5:50 mark):

General manager Dave Gettleman has done his best to quiet the speculation this offseason:

He reiterated that stance at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, per Judy Battista of NFL.com, saying, "We didn't sign Odell to trade him."

Alas, that has not kept rumors from swirling:

The new league year begins March 13.
