When Odell Beckham Jr. signed with the Los Angeles Rams, many likely thought it was the best contract he could’ve gotten. It appears there was another team that wanted his services that had an even better offer.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler recently revealed the strongest offer Beckham received came from the Seattle Seahawks. The Rams would step up their offer with heavy incentives to seal the deal with OBJ to come out West with them instead of him landing with a division rival.
“Some background on Odell Beckham free agency last week: Seattle actually made the strongest offer over the first few days,” Fowler tweeted on Saturday morning. “Rams stepped in w/ heavy incentives because they wanted the player, but they also had to ensure no other NFC West team got him. Arizona also inquired.”
That was the best case scenario for the Rams as Robert Woods went down with a season-ending ACL injury just one day after the Odell deal was announced.
Odell made his debut on Monday Night Football against the 49ers and finished the contest with two receptions for 18 yards and one tackle after an early Matt Stafford interception.
The Rams lost the game and hope to get back on the winning side of things as they take on the Packers on November 28th.
