by Ricardo Gutierrez - Odell Beckham Jr. hopes to narrow down his list of teams and sign with a club by the end of the month, sources told ESPN.

Sources: Odell Beckham Jr. hopes to sign by end of November 10:28 PM ET Adam SchefterESPN Senior Writer Close ESPN NFL Insider Joined ESPN in 2009 Former president of the Pro Football Writers of America and the author of four books Odell Beckham Jr . would like to whittle down his current list of potential teams -- which include the Dallas Cowboys , Buffalo Bills , Kansas City Chiefs , New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers -- as soon as possible and have a decision by the end of this month, league sources told ESPN. Each of those teams are expected at least be contenders to advance in the postseason, an area where Beckham helped the Los Angeles Rams win last season's Super Bowl. The Rams and Green Bay Packers might also have been featured prominently in Beckham's list, but as both teams continue to fall further they fall out of playoff contention, the less likely it is that Beckham will opt to sign with one of those franchises. Editor's Picks Jones: OBJ 'could look pretty good' with Cowboys 4d Todd Archer GM: Giants would be open to talking with OBJ 11d Jordan Raanan 1 Related Beckham wants to play for a contender, and league sources are predicting that his eventual compensation package could be similar on a prorated basis to some of the free-agent deals signed last offseason by fellow wide receivers such as Chris Godwin and Mike Williams , each of whom make an average of $20 million per year. NFL evaluators believe Beckham's talents are at least on level with players like Godwin and Williams, not to mention his marketability, which only could help his leverage. If Beckham were to play the final quarter of the season at similar prorated pay to Godwin or Williams, he could make about $5 million for the remainder of this season. Teams also believe Beckham is looking for a multi-year deal, which could potentially give teams additional flexibility in structuring a deal that would work for both the free-agent receiver and his new team. Beckham also is nearly ready to play, as Dr. Neal ElAttrache -- the doctor who performed the surgery on his knee -- is ready to clear him for all activities.
