“LA Knows Where I Wanted To Be, But They Didn’t Offer Me Anything” | Odell Beckham Jr. Says Rams Insulted His Worth With “Lowest Of Low Offers”

In February, the Los Angeles Rams won the franchise’s second Lombardi Trophy with a 23-20 Super Bowl win over the Cincinnati Bengals. A key component of that magical run was wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who was acquired after the halfway mark of the season following his surprising release from the Cleveland Browns.

Beckham’s arrival in Tinseltown added a much-needed deep threat to the offense and took pressure off of fellow star receiver Cooper Kupp. It looked inevitable that Beckham would re-sign with the Rams following the season, but a torn ACL suffered in the Super Bowl has slowed that process.

Why Hasn’t OBJ Re-Signed? 

Recently Beckham mentioned that money or the lack thereof has also played a role in his not being re-signing with the Rams, who are in desperate need of his services when it comes to stretching the field and diversifying the offense. The former New York Giants star recently took to Twitter to tell his side of the story about his contract situation with the Rams.

“LA knows where I wanted to be… but they didn’t offer me… ANYthing! So idk what people want me to do, I def kno my worth and what the offer was isn’t reflective of that. So it’s tough to say that I can come on back even tho I finally found that home!“

Seems like Beckham wants to be in Los Angeles, but at the same he wants to feel appreciated and, based on his tweet, the offer wasn’t good enough.

Beckham even tweeted about how he says the Rams conducted business with him. “The lowest of low offers.”

Rams Coach Sean McVay Says Rams Aren’t Done Making Offers To OBJ

During his short time with the Rams, Beckham and McVay became really close. And unlike the Browns, McVay dialed up plenty of plays just for the dynamic wideout. But if you let McVay tell it, the Rams aren’t done trying to bring OBJ back. 

After getting wind of Beckham’s tweets, McVay chimed in with his thoughts during the team’s media session on Wednesday.

“I love Odell. We have constant dialogue.”

“Odell also knows that certainly I don’t think that’s the last offer that would come from us. I’m not familiar with what it is. He knows how we feel about him. We’ve got a little bit of time. But I love, Odell nothing but good things coming from me.”

Beckham Was On His Way To Winning SB MVP Before Injury

Prior to injuring his ACL in the Super Bowl, Beckham was the best player on the field, and the Bengals had no answer for him. In the 2021-22 playoffs, OBJ tallied 21 receptions for 288 yards and two touchdowns. His skill set fits perfectly with the aforementioned Kupp, and without him this season defenses are playing the Rams completely differently.

Beckham says he is letting his heart lead him, and when the time is right he’ll join a team. There’s a good chance he rejoins the Rams. He loves the vibes and L.A. It’s all about how he looks coming off the injury. We all know that’s a huge reason why he isn’t signed yet, as much as OBJ wants to make it seem as if the ball is totally in his court. Two major injuries in four seasons are enough to make any team cautious.
