The first time Odell Beckham Jr. tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee he needed 11 months to return. He is hoping for a quicker return this time since his second ACL tear came in Super Bowl LVI.

Beckham’s rehab from Feb. 22 knee surgery is progressing well, Tyler Dragon of USA Today reports, but the three-time Pro Bowler is not expected to be ready for the start of the 2022 season. Beckham, 29, could start the season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, which would sideline him at least the first six weeks, but that is yet to be determined.

Beckham remains a free agent as getting healthy is his priority right now. But multiple teams still are interested, including the Rams, according to Dragon.

The Rams want Beckham back, but General Manager Les Snead has admitted that Beckham’s rehab timeline will factor into the team’s structure and timing of a possible deal.

Beckham signed with the Rams in November and caught 27 passes for 305 yards with five touchdowns in the regular season for Los Angeles and added 23 receptions for 339 yards with three scores in the postseason.

The Rams added Allen Robinson in free agency and traded Robert Woods to the Titans, but Beckham remains a target.

  1. Seems unlikely OBJ will be ready for the season so he should be in no rush to sign. His best bet at a long term deal might be to wait til the season starts and sign a 1 year deal with a contender down the stretch to hopefully give him 6 or 8 regular season games plus the playoffs to show whether hes lost anything from the inury(or just age)

  2. Hopefully the deal with the Rams gets worked out soon. Getting the Aaron Donald deal done first might be the hold up.

  3. The medical treatment of ACL injuries seems to keep improving, he showed he can still play this year, and teammates love him (Baker Mayfield excepted). I want him on my team.

  4. Any team that is currently slated to receive compensatory picks will wait until after the draft to extend a formal offer.

  5. Seeing him get injured again in the Super Bowl was so disappointing. I get why he has his detractors, it’s not undeserved, but he’s a legit baller. Would be great to see him get his health together, find a solid situation and go on a good run.

    Stafford needs to be surrounded by as many stars as possible.
    Once again, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Remember a few days after the Super Bowl when it was rumored that Sean McVay might retire? You guaranteed that within a week Raheem Morris would be the new head coach. Pepperidge Farms remembers.

  7. A smart team will offer him a short term big sounding deal (feed the ego) with most of the money in “active for game” bonuses. OBJ gets to feed his ego, the team gets an injury friendly deal. He is then zero cost for the first half of the season.

  8. Unless he accepts a pay cut I can’t see any contending team including the Rams sniffing his direction until the start of the season and a timeline is determined. He is a #2 at best for any contender so not someone who is going to be a “must have” unless the team has nothing else going on in their receiver room. Seeing how Beckham has functioned the last few years he’s probably not going to go to any team that isn’t going to carry him to a title anyway.
