Ian Rapoport has reported that the Los Angeles Rams are the leaders in the teams that would be likely to sign receiver Odell Beckham Jr. There is no doubt that the talented pass catcher had a resurgence in his production when he was brought to the Rams after a slump with the Cleveland Browns. Last season over eight games with Los Angeles, Beckham had 27 catches for 305 yards and five touchdowns. In the Super Bowl, OBJ scored the first touchdown in the game and with coverage favoring Cooper Kupp, Beckham seemed primed for more opportunities until he went down.

Due to the injury, Beckham will miss part of next season. However, the Rams who are in good shape with receivers, returning the Offensive Player of the Year, and having added Allen Robinson, could still land OBJ, and if he comes back for the second part of the year and has the same effect he did for next post season, it would he a huge grab.
