Even though Odell Beckham Jr. sounds like a long shot to acquire, just imagine how great the offense of the Los Angeles Rams would be.
While the Los Angeles Rams continue to wait and see which team Ndamukong Suh decides to play for during the 2018 season, it appears that some fans are turning their attention over the possibility of Odell Beckham Jr. coming on board, even if it would seem like an absolute long shot. Over the last couple of years, the former LSU star hasn’t been shy over his desire to be the league’s highest paid receiver, and Beckham has even made a few threats over refusing to step foot on the field if it doesn’t happen.
With this in mind, it’s easy to understand why the Giants would consider the possibility of a trade if they don’t want to spend all of that money on Beckham at the moment since he’s coming off a 2017 campaign in which he was limited to playing in just four games due to a broken ankle. Moving on from a talented wideout like Beckham certainly wouldn’t be easy since it’s tough to ignore the fact that he caught 288 passes to go along with 35 touchdowns during the first 43 games of his NFL career from 2014-16, but unfortunately this is quite common in the NFL.
Take a look at the Miami Dolphins for instance, and the talent that Jarvis Landry brought to the table before the team felt it would be best to move on from the wideout by trading him to the Cleveland Browns. So if New York decides to take a similar approach with Beckham, it would be wise for Los Angeles to at least consider the possibility, and see what it would take to bring him on board to Sean McVay‘s already high-powered offense.
For a team that was expected to go through year or two of rebuilding, what McVay was able to accomplish in his first season leading the Rams to a NFC West title along with making NFL history by becoming the first team to go from worst to first in scoring was truly amazing. And if McVay had the opportunity to run an offense with Beckham part of the mix, just imagine what could be in store for 2018, as Jared Goff would certainly love having the speedy wideout as a reliable target.
But at the end of the day, this is simply just a dream scenario for Los Angeles since Beckham’s actions have made it clear that he would come at a hefty price. Then again, the Rams have already been busy pulling off all sorts of surprises this offseason in trades, so maybe there is hope over the possibility of Beckham joining the team, even if it is an absolute long shot.
