Jerry Jones says Odell Beckham Jr.'s flight removal will not impact Cowboys' interest: 'We think he’d fit in really good with us'

FRISCO, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys continue to monitor Odell Beckham Jr.

They’ve monitored the veteran receiver’s ACL rehabilitation progress, they’ve monitored his return-to-play timeline, and now they find themselves monitoring a flight he boarded — and from which he was removed before takeoff.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones confirmed that the team collected information on a Sunday morning incident in which Beckham was scheduled to fly from Miami to Los Angeles. Instead, Miami-Dade police escorted him off the flight before it took off.

Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones said the incident “did not” change the Cowboys’ interest in Beckham.
