Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been interested in acquiring the WR for the team since last season. Jones highly sought after the 2022 Super Bowl champion, who is still in pursuit of the WR. But the talks have led to no conclusive grounds for both the team and the player.

On the other hand, other people feel that the Kansas City Chiefs might be the best place for OBJ’s resurgence story. The Chiefs recently won the Super Bowl, and OBJ’s inclusion could further bolster the offensive capabilities of the Chiefs for another Super Bowl season.
