However, the most recent drama between Odell Beckham Jr. and the Cleveland Browns played out with OBJ punching his ticket to the Super Bowl.
Odell Beckham Jr. has played a massive role for the Los Angeles Rams, especially during the playoffs. After feeling underutilized, the star wide receiver is now an NFC champion right after leaving northeast Ohio.
The Rams win was significant between Odell Beckham Sr.’s Twitter fingers busting shots at Baker Mayfield and OBJ expressing his relief at a new environment.

Now former NFL great Terrell Owens has OBJ’s back, congratulating him for the win and scolding the Browns organization and Mayfield specifically for a lousy separation with the former LSU star.
“Congratulations to the @Bengals and @RamsNFL but EXTREMELY HAPPY for @obj!!! @browns @bakermayfield totally screwed that situation up!! In the words of @KendrickPerkins … #CarryTheHellOn”
The OBJ Way
OBJ started the 2021 season with the Cleveland Browns, who went 8-9 and missed the playoffs. The Browns midway ultimately released him through the season.
Then speculation began about the potential chemistry that he and Rams QB Matthew Stafford would have. Because the OBJ-Mayfield tandem never fully activated, he and quarterback Matthew Stafford had a great connection.
OBJ caught 27 passes for 305 yards and five touchdowns in eight regular-season games with L.A. In comparison, he logged 232 yards with zero touchdowns in the six games he started in Cleveland.

After the game, he discussed what made his association with the Rams successful thus far and fitting into the culture.
“Being integrated into the plan. Taking me in, pushing me for excellence, the weight room — everything about this place is right, and it’s done right,” OBJ said according to reports.
“And it’s just been an incredible opportunity. And I feel like I’m just trying to make the most of it. And here we are playing in the Super Bowl, one game away from our dreams.”
OBJ threw shade at Cleveland, insinuating that the process was wrong in his opinion for not pushing him the right way.

Ultimately, Beckham’s decision on what team to go to came down to the Rams and Packers. According to reports, the fact that they were two Super Bowl contenders in the NFC was attractive, but he chose the Rams even though he was only getting $500K guaranteed immediately.
The rest of his contract was packed with incentives based on OBJ’s team performance.
Terrell Owens feels that OBJ has had the last laugh. Now imagine if he wins the whole thing.
