The Rams keep waiting and waiting and waiting to re-sign Odell Beckham Jr. There is still a chance that they will wait too long.
“OBJ was able to say hello to several of his former teammates while in the area, including Sterling Shepard,” she wrote. “For those asking, yes, free agent opportunities in the future will include exploring multiple teams, including his latest. I think he’ll be happy wherever he’s loved.”
Beckham was selected by the Giants in the first round. However, in the end he wanted to leave. Coincidentally, it was an interview with Anderson while she was with ESPN that seemed to set the stage for his deal with the Browns.
The last line of her second tweet really speaks for itself. Last year, it was the Rams who were forced to press the entire court to get Beckham, and it won him over. If/when another team makes a similar push this year, they might get it.
The Giants obviously need help in the receiving room due to Shepard’s season-ending injury last week and the general struggle for better options (like Kenny Golladay as well as Kadarius Tony) to contribute.
With Beckham openly calling for all pitches to be turf following Shepard’s non-contact ACL tear, and in light of general concerns about the quality of the turf at Metlife Stadium, a team that plays its home games on grass could in advantage.
Beckham continues to recover from a non-contact anterior cruciate ligament fracture sustained on artificial turf at SoFi Stadium during the Super Bowl. When he is healthy, he can be a huge contributor to an opponent. The Giants unexpectedly found themselves rivals at the start of the season with a 3-1 record.
UPDATE 10:30 PM ET: Fox Sports’ Ralph Vacchiano reports that Beckham visited the stadium but did not meet with coaches or executives. So that not considered an official visit.
