Odell Beckham Jr.
WR - FA
Free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is expected to avoid free agency and re-sign with the Rams.
Beckham, an integral piece in the Super-Bowl champion team, is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the league year. In a report Monday morning, NFL insider Aaron Wilson said that the veteran wide receiver is expected to avoid free agency and re-sign with the team. If they get a deal done, Beckham will be a major boost for the Rams offense and Matthew Stafford when he is able to return from his ACL tear he suffered in the Super Bowl.
Odell Beckham Jr. is a 'priority' for the Rams, and they will make a big push to get him back in free agency.
The team took a chance on OBJ in the middle of the season, and it paid off to the maximum extent. He was a key contributor to the Super Bowl winning team, and they are going to do everything they can to bring him back, despite him not being able to play until November at the earliest.
According to Ian Rapoport, Odell Beckham Jr. is believed to have suffered a torn ACL during the Superbowl on Sunday.
During the second quarter of Sunday's Superbowl, Beckham suffered a non-contact knee injury during a routine route. He immediately was unable to place any weight on his knee and was helped to the sideline. The veteran WR faces a long road to recovery before he heads to free agency during the upcoming offseason.
Despite getting injured in the first half, Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a nice impact for the team, catching two of three targets for 52 yards and a touchdown before exciting the game.
There were many skeptics about OBJ when he got released from the Browns and joined the Rams earlier this season, but ultimately he proves that he is still a great asset and an impact player. He was having an electric game up until he had to exit with a knee injury, and those efforts proved to be enough to help the Rams bring home the title. Entering free agency, LA will probably be on the top of the veteran wide receivers list, but dynasty managers should keep an eye on his injury status.
