Odell Beckham Jr. said goodbye to Cleveland and is now set to say hello to Los Angeles… as the star wide receiver is reportedly close to signing with the Rams.
Just days after the Browns relinquished the gap – Beckham is finalizing a deal to play with Matt Stafford and Sean McVay, ESPN Adam schefter reported Thursday.
Of course, the reception hall in LA is already loaded … Cooper Kupp and Robert woods are perhaps the best duo in the league – and their backups, including Van Jefferson, is not left out either.
But, LA hasn’t been afraid to sign and / or trade for veteran depth anytime over the past few seasons, regardless of their current roster – so the switch to Odell ink makes sense.
OBJ hasn’t been a foolproof superstar in years – he’s battled injuries and, at times, a bad QB game in Cleveland – but seems like a good bet McVay, an offensive genius, can bring him to Hollywood.
As for the number OBJ will wear when he finally makes the squad … for the first time in his career, it could be something different from # 13.
Rams replacement quarterback John Wolford currently has the numbers – so, new town, new team, new number for Odell?!?
