Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s standing with the New York Giants has seemingly progressed to shaky ground with the organization. It has created chatter around the team that he could potentially be on the move via a trade.
Along those lines, the Los Angeles Rams have emerged as a possible landing spot for Pro Bowl wideout this offseason. According to Gary Meyers of the New York Daily News, Beckham Jr. has expressed to a couple of Rams players that he has interest in playing for Los Angeles:
These rumored comments by the 25-year-old only further complicate his situation with the Giants that has become more cloudy by the day. The team has begun to grow tired of the constant behavioral issues that have arisen over the last few seasons. The latest in this regard involves a viral video him possibly being involved in illegal drug use.
This has led to management voicing uncertainty about his future in New York as his is currently on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal. It has created some sort of apprehension from the front office to commit to a lucrative long-term contract with him.
It has opened the door for teams like the Rams to put forth a pursuit of Beckham Jr. this offseason. He is still one of the most talented wide receivers in the league that could have a tremendous impact wherever he lands if he were traded. This has become a situation to certainly keep an eye on over the next few weeks as Los Angeles lingers as a potential landing spot.
