Jalen Ramsey was first to report the news similar to how he reported Von Miller would be traded.
The Rams just cut Desean Jackson after he was upset that he wasn’t getting enough balls thrown his way, and now they are picking up Odell Beckham Jr.
The receivers’ room is stacked in LA, with Cooper Kupp leading the lead in receiving. They also have vet Robert Woods and up and comer Van Jefferson.
How will OBJ fit into all this? No one knows.
Initially, it looked like OBJ was going to wait until next week to make a decision, but that has all changed. The Rams weren’t even on the list of contenders.
Beckham, who cleared waivers Tuesday after being released by the Cleveland Browns on Monday, was still sorting through several offers Wednesday night, with as many as eight teams making their plays for him this week, sources told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. The Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots are among the teams pursuing him, sources have told ESPN.
Beckham wants to spend the rest of this season with a playoff contender and in a winning environment, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter earlier in the week.
The Browns excused Beckham from practice last week while the sides negotiated his exit. He asked to be traded and never developed an on-field connection with Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, and Beckham essentially forced his release last week when his father shared an 11-minute video on social media — hours before the trade deadline — of plays in which Mayfield didn’t pass him the ball.
The three-time Pro Bowl selection has 17 catches for 232 yards and zero touchdowns in six games this season.
BSO can report part of his decision-making was being in the LA market. It is good for his endorsements and his girlfriend Lolo Wood he is an aspiring fashion model.
