It's no secret the Kansas City Chiefs need to add wide receivers to their roster. With that said, Odell Beckham Jr. could be an interesting option for the reigning AFC West champions.

On this Thursday's episode of Get Up, former NFL general manager Mike Tannenbaum made an argument for the Chiefs signing Beckham this offseason.

"Well, there's enormous pressure on Patrick Mahomes, and that's what goes with making $45 million a year. But context is everything. It's only March 24, so they can replace Tyreek Hill. It's not with one player. If I was them today, I would go fly and meet with Odell Beckham Jr. I'd sign him to a one-year deal," Tannenbaum said. "I would say come invest with us. Let's take care of your rehab right now. You may be on the PUP list, you may not even play some games, but we'll put you in the best position possible to maximize your value in March of 2023."

The idea of Beckham catching passes from Patrick Mahomes sounds exciting, but Chiefs fans aren't entirely sold on this potential pairing.

Chiefs fans understand that Beckham is very talented, but he'll probably miss time to start the 2022 season because of his ACL injury.

Beckham played very well for the Los Angeles Rams, hauling in 27 passes for 305 yards and five touchdowns.

Do you think the Chiefs should pursue Beckham?
