Odell Beckham hoping to stay with Rams after this season

Odell Beckham Jr. has played for three teams in eight seasons. That’s unusual for a receiver of his talent.

Beckham, though, finally feels at home.

“This place, it feels good in my heart,” Beckham said, per Nick Shook of NFL Media. “It feels like a home.”

Beckham joined the Rams on Nov. 11, three days after the Browns cut him. After only 11 games, including three in the postseason, Beckham has seen enough to know Los Angeles, where he has a home, is where he wants to stay.

But he is scheduled to hit free agency in March.

Beckham, 29, said he would be willing to give the Rams a “hometown discount.”

“Yeah, of course,” he said.

Beckham isn’t the team’s top option, and if Robert Woods hadn’t injured his knee days after Beckham arrived, Beckham wouldn’t even be the second option. He has played a bigger role in the postseason than the regular season, catching 19 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown to help the Rams get within one victory of a Super Bowl title.

Winning, as they say, cures everything.

  1. Because he’s on a winning team. If his team were losing bad and out of the play offs, he’d be all drama.

  3. I don’t see it happening. They have cap issues and he’s going to want WR1 money. Teams have probably seen enough of him which means it’s not going to happen. It’s hard to take anything this guy says seriously. He says that now but after about a month next year it’ll be back to being diva OBJ. He’s probably comparable to JuJu Shuster. Remember when he thought he was going to land a big contract last year only to find out his opinion of himself is much higher than what NFL teams think of him. And after watching AB meltdown in Tampa Bay even fewer teams are interested in bringing either of these two guys into their locker room.

  4. When they say it isn’t about the money, it’s about the money. He’ll stay in LA on a tiebreaker or with a better contract. Otherwise he’s gone.

    Tom Brady is the only player I’ve ever seen to give a hometown discount.
