Rams coaches, players, and fans would love to have him back

For the record, I love Odell Beckham Jr. I love what he brings to the team. I love the way he stepped up fearlessly in critical moments in games. And I absolutely appreciate his ruthless competitive spirit.

So, apparently, does LA Rams head coach Sean Mcvay. Mcvay recently got married at the Beverly Hills hotel. Invites were restricted to last season’s captains and a couple of now-retired former Rams. Not being either one of these, Odell Beckham Jr was undeterred, crashing his head coach’s wedding. Mcvay loved it.

In case your video player is on the fritz, here is how Sean McVay described it:

"‘I love Odell and so only in Odell’s fashion could he be the wedding crasher at our wedding. So, O showed up, crashed the wedding and I loved it that he was still there. Even my mom, she said, ‘Aw, he’s so nice. And gosh, he is handsome in person…I said, You crash my wedding, you re-sign with the Rams then, man. That’s a given right there.’ – Rams HC McVay talking about OBJ crashing his wedding"

Loved it. Loves Odell. Does this shed any light on whether the two-time winning Super Bowl wide receiver will stay in Los Angeles with the Rams?

Is OBJ ready to suit up just yet?

Reports about the wedding reception pointed to OBJ tearing it up on the dance floor, and nobody described a guy on crutches, with a limp, or even a slow gait.  In fact, there was no mention of the torn ACL he suffered in Super Bowl LVI. How close is he to getting medical clearance to play football?

Whether he remains with the LA Rams or not, I wish Odell all the best. Our sport is better with him in it. Is he cocky? Yes. Is he flash? Of course.

He’s a wide receiver in the National Football league. Kinda goes with the territory. But he also seems like a great guy and teammate, someone genuine and warm and considerate. He can be as flashy as he wants when he’s a monster on the field. And, when actually thrown the ball (hello Cleveland), OBJ is still one of the best. He’s even got the hardware to prove it.

Rings and watches.
