Odell Beckham Jr. Is A Super Bowl Champion, TikTok Legend — And Wedding Crasher?

Lost in the shuffle of the Super Bowl champion Rams’ busy offseason as they look to repeat was head coach Sean McVay getting married to his longtime companion Veronika Khomyn.

While the wedding went off without a glitch, during a recent interview on the “I Am Athlete” podcast, McVay detailed a certain eccentric wideout crashing his nuptials. That would be none other than Odell Beckham Jr., the talented pass-catcher who joined the Rams this past midseason and helped lead them to the Super Bowl, the same one who is currently a free agent recovering from a serious knee injury. 

“I mean, I love Odell. So only in Odell’s fashion could he be the wedding crasher at our wedding. He showed up and crashed the wedding. I said, ‘You crashed my wedding, you re-sign with the Rams then, man.’ That’s a given right there.”

 

McVay would love nothing more than to have OBJ back in Tinseltown playing for his Rams, who are looking to be the first repeat Super Bowl champions since the 2003-2004 New England Patriots. Although he’ll be out awhile recovering from surgery on his torn ACL, you can never have too much talent in the arsenal.

The Los Angeles Rams have been basking in the aftermath of winning the Super Bowl a few months ago. Since then the team has re-signed defensive stalwart Aaron Donald, added wide receiver Allen Robinson via free agency, and they got the quarterback of their defense in future Hall of Famer Bobby Wagner, who joins the division rival after ten successful seasons in Seattle.

Beckham Shined With Rams: McVay Adamant He Wants Him Back

The Rams’ offense, while good before Beckham’s arrival, became even better once he arrived. In eight games Beckham recorded 27 receptions for 305 yards and five touchdowns. 

In the postseason he tallied 21 receptions for 288 yards and two touchdowns. In fact, Beckham was on his way to probably winning Super Bowl MVP before he sustained his second ACL injury. Since then it’s been sort of a standstill between him and the Rams brass as they await what he plans to do for next season.

While he won’t be ready to play for a bulk of next season, he’s still trying to find the best fit for when he does return. McVay believes that fit is with the Rams, and he’s let it be known how much he wants him back.

 

In mid-May during an appearance on the “Rich Eisen Show,” McVay had this to say:

“I really want Odell back on our team. He’s a guy that, in a short amount of time, we were able to develop a really special relationship. I thought he brought a great spark to our team. I thought he played really well. He’s a great teammate.

“Without a doubt, want to get Odell back here. That’s the goal and continuing to work toward a solution of him re-signing with the Rams.”

 

 

Healthy OBJ Would Give Rams Best Receiver Quartet In NFL

There’s no shortage of talented pass-catchers for quarterback Matt Stafford to throw to. Super Bowl MVP Cooper Kupp is fresh off a season where he led the league in receptions (145), yards (1,947) and touchdowns (16). Cupp became the fourth triple crown winner since 1970, joining Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (1990), Sterling Sharpe (1992), and Steve Smith (2005).

Van Jefferson is a talented field-stretcher who’s continuing to develop and become a playmaker. Last season VJ tallied 50 catches for 802 yards and six touchdowns.

In free agency the Rams landed the aforementioned Robinson, a physical, move-the-chains target who’s capable of getting deep. Robinson, who’s had three 1000-yard seasons and 40 career touchdowns in eight seasons, joins a real offense after playing his entire career in offensively devoid Chicago and Jacksonville. 

It’s obvious that the Rams are still in the honeymoon stage, but the NFL is a numbers game, and Beckham Jr. knows it. By the time he receives a clean bill of health, the Rams’ receivers room might be a bit crowded.
