Just because the Cowboys won doesn’t necessarily mean that Beckham is going to definitely sign with them. So have a little hope, Giants fans.

CBS Sports insider Josina Anderson reported that the confirmed order of the visits in December. The Giants would be first, followed by the Buffalo Bills, then the Cowboys. Anderson also notes that there were “conversations continue” with the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens.
The Cowboys receiving game showed out against the Giants. Lamb caught 6-of-11 targets for 106 yards. Michael Gallup hauled in five passes for 63 yards on eight targets.
While the Cowboys may have won the battle, they still have to try and convince Beckham to sign with them.
