A decision hasn't been made just yet, but it sounds like the Patriots' locker room would welcome Odell Beckham Jr. with open arms.

During this Thursday's press conference, Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne admit that players on the team are talking about Beckham in the locker room. He told reporters, "Of course everyone's talking about Odell."

The Patriots have been mentioned as a potential suitor for Beckham. He would certainly provide a boost to their receiving corps, which is currently being led by Nelson Agholor, Kendrick Bourne and Jakobi Meyers.

Bourne isn't the only wideout on the Patriots who briefly discussed the Beckham sweepstakes this week.

On Wednesday afternoon, Agholor called Beckham "an amazing player." That being said, he avoided making any cryptic or controversial comments.

“I think he’s an amazing player. I think he’s an absolutely special talent, and I wish him the best,” Agholor said, via the Boston Herald. “I love the receivers we have here, and it’s not my position to worry about that. But I wish him well, and I know that at the end of the day, whoever takes him, he’s going to do his job.”

Beckham would add an explosive element to the Patriots' offense. That's something that unit lacks at this time.

As for when a decision might be announced, Beckham could wait until after this weekend to sign with a team.
