According to Adam Schefter, Rams WR Odell Beckham had a sincere interest in joining the Green Bay Packers, but the team steadily refused to offer more than the minimum salary, plus incentives.
Schefter added Beckham’s camp asked the Packers on multiple occasions to increase their offer but they declined. So he chose the Rams.
“He wasn’t going to take the same, or less money, to go to Green Bay [over Los Angeles],” a source explained to Schefter.
Beckham signed his deal with Los Angeles 48 hours after the team engaged his camp.
In his debut, Beckham only was on the field for 15 plays. That will be changing this week. Beckham and the Rams face off against the Packers in Week 12.
“They are gonna play him and play him and play him, very extensively,” Glazer said on FOX’s NFL pregame show.
In 2021, Beckham has appeared in six games for the Browns and one for the Rams. He’s caught 19 of 37 targets for 250 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
