Sean McVay, Los Angeles Rams' head coach, told reporters that Odell Beckham Jr., a newly acquired wideout, could make his debut against the San Francisco 49ers Monday at Levi's Stadium.
McVay stated Friday, "We'll be seeing." "... "...
Beckham was signed by the Rams on Thursday. He is a three-time Pro Bowler and has five 1,000-yard seasons. Beckham, a former New York Giant and Cleveland Brown player, is now in his eighth NFL season.
Beckham caught 17 passes for 232 yards in six Browns games in 2021, before he and his team decided to part ways. Odell Beckham Sr. posted a video to Instagram that showed how Baker Mayfield did not target his son.
Former LSU star cleared waivers Tuesday and became a free agent, before signing with L.A. to complete the rest of the season.
Beckham joins a Rams team that already boasts a powerful passing attack, including quarterback Matthew Stafford, wideouts Cooper Kupp (and Robert Woods), and tight end Tyler Higbee.
He may not be able to reach the same level of success in 2020 (fractured left ankle), but he can still play a significant role as the Rams attempt to win the Super Bowl's second title.
Beckham will be completing the three-receiver set with Kupp, Woods and Woods to create a dynamic trio that may prove difficult to stop.
The 7-2 Rams are focusing on the 8-1 Arizona Cardinals to capture the NFC West (and NFCFC) lead. Monday's game against the 49ers is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.
Beckham may not be available for the contest. His next opportunity to play for the Rams is on Nov. 28, at the Green Bay Packers.
