A free agent for the first time in his career after going unclaimed on waivers, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. surveyed his options and found his next landing spot, as he has signed with the Los Angeles Rams, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The 29-year-old’s next stop comes after totaling 17 catches on 34 targets for 232 yards in six games with the Browns this season.
Acquired from the Giants for an absolute haul not even three years ago, the relationship between Beckham Jr. and the Browns was clearly deteriorating, and OBJ’s Cleveland exit was accelerated both internally and externally following an Oct. 31 head-to-head with the Broncos that saw him targeted just once. That was the lowest target total of OBJ’s 88-game career, excluding injury-shortened appearances like the one that ended his 2020 campaign with a torn ACL.
The 12th overall pick from the 2014 NFL Draft, Beckham Jr. has totaled 504 catches, 7,062 yards, and 51 touchdowns in an eight-year career split between the Giants and Browns.
Los Angeles has now made two major upgrades in the last two weeks, with Beckham joining seven-time All-Pro linebacker Von Miller, who was acquired via trade from the Denver Broncos on Nov. 1. The Rams are currently 7-2 following last Sunday’s loss to the Tennessee Titans.
