Odell Beckham Jr. #3 of the Los Angeles Rams warms up prior to facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Divisional Playoff game at Raymond James Stadium on January 23, 2022 in Tampa, Florida.

Jarvis Landry is the latest player added by the New Orleans Saints, but he may not be the last.

If his social media activity is any indication, there could be another LSU player joining soon.

Landry, along with Tyrann Mathieu, is set to suit up for the Saints this coming NFL season.

The Saints signed the five-time Pro Bowler to a one-year deal worth $3 million last week.

This came a week after New Orleans signed Mathieu to a $3.4 million deal.

The two new pickups plus the entire 2022 draft class account for just over $14.7 million, keeping the Saints under the cap by $9.6 million.

As far as Landry and Mathieu are concerned, the two are ironically from LSU. Yhey may not be the only products of the college to be in a New Orleans uniform if Odell Beckham Jr. considers and accepts the invitation of Landry.

The 2017 NFL receptions leader is trying for the Super Bowl champion to follow him and Mathieu.

If it materializes, it would be a huge reunion for the former Fighting Tigers.

Landy and Beckham played together when both were teammates with the Cleveland Browns.

However, Beckham failed to make a good impression and he eventually got traded to the Los Angeles Rams.

With the Browns, the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year racked up 1,586 yards and seven touchdowns, which equates to roughly the same production that he had in his second year in New York.

Rather, it was with the New York Giants where Beckham enjoyed three good seasons.

At the time, the 29-year-old wide receiver had double-digit touchdowns. He was unable to replicate this feat with the Browns.

Beckham was somehow able to redeem himself with the Rams.

While he is currently out with an ACL injury, he remains a potent addition to any team.

Even though Landry is trying to convince him, it remains to be seen if the Saints will pursue any deal to add the three-time Pro Bowler.

New Orleans already has Landry, Chris Olave and Michael Thomas, so there appears to be little reason to add "OBJ" to the mix.
