Los Angeles Rams fans can only imagine how much Jared Goff would benefit from the addition of Odell Beckham Jr. on offense if the trade were to happen.
Most likely, the potential trade talks surrounding Odell Beckham Jr. to the Los Angeles Rams will continue to be around leading up to April’s NFL Draft, as the New York Giants have been trying to use the situation to their advantage by claiming they prefer two first-round picks in return. For the Rams, it would be one thing to trade away the No. 23 pick since they would be able to address their needs at linebacker or the offensive line in the later rounds, but giving away two future first rounders seems like a bit of a stretch, even if Beckham would take their Super Bowl odds to a whole new level.
Not to mention, Los Angeles would have to open up their checkbooks for Beckham as well since he’s already made it clear that he wants to be the league’s highest paid receiver, so there are a lot of factors to take into consideration. Beckham or not, the good news for the Rams is the offense will still be in amazing shape heading into the 2018 season, but if the move were to happen, just imagine the kind of numbers Jared Goff could potentially put up under center.
Heading into last season, there were some questions surrounding Goff’s ability to lead Los Angeles on offense after a horrendous rookie campaign, although it wasn’t entirely his fault since he didn’t have the best offensive line or receivers to work with. But after Sean McVay came on board, and made it a mission to build a better offense around the former California star, Goff quickly saw his game elevate to a whole new level, and even earned a trip to the Pro Bowl.
Even with Sammy Watkins no longer in the picture, the Rams have every reason in the world to be thrilled over what Goff’s third NFL season will consist of, especially if he can work his way into the MVP conversation. If Los Angeles was impressed over the 28 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions Goff threw in 15 games last season, just imagine the kind of numbers he would put up if Beckham were to come over in a trade. Long shot or not, the one thing the Rams have proven this offseason is any potential move seems awesome, and if they can convince the Giants to somehow lower the asking price for Beckham, who knows what could happen from now until draft time.
