LeBron James and pal Odell Beckham are about to get a whole lot closer.
On Thursday, the 29-year-old receiver signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Rams and it did not take long for the Lakers superstar to celebrate.
“Welcome to LA my brother @obj! It’s GO TIME!!” James tweeted.
It was more than enough for social media users to remember when James tweeted out ‘Free Odell’ when he was going through a lot with the Cleveland Browns. Twitter users were sure James had something to do with recruiting Odell to Los Angeles.
Beckham, who was waived on Monday after two-and-a-half seasons in Cleveland, cleared waivers Tuesday and became a free agent. The Patriots, Saints and Packers were all rumored to be in the mix.
Nobody had the Rams even mentioned as a possible landing spot until the news dropped.
Beckham has 17 receptions for 232 yards and zero touchdowns this season. He will soon be catching passes from quarterback Matthew Stafford, who is also in his first year as a Ram.
