The Super Bowl 56 champion, who had been a free agent and spent time rehabbing his torn ACL from that February 13, 2022 game against the Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium, hopes to be signed by someone by the end of the month according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Kansas City: The Chiefs have been mentioned as a possibility for awhile. The thoughts of OBJ playing in an offense constructed by Andy Reid and with Patrick Mahomes firing the football around has enticed football fans, especially those in “Chiefs Kingdom.” The Chiefs ranking first in passing yardage could be another strong selling point …read more
