Rams Keep a Locker Ready For Odell Beckham Jr.

The Los Angeles Rams still have hope left for a possible return of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to their roster at some point this season. 

To possibly entice the wideout, out of respect the Rams have kept a full locker with a name plate open for Beckham, according to The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue. He remains unsigned to any roster at this time as he continues to rehab his ACL tear he sustained last postseason in the Super Bowl. Los Angeles could have offered him a contract during the offseason but chose not to as they wait for the pass-catcher to return healthy first. 

Due to cap restraints the Rams would not be able to offer Beckham any type of lucrative deal at this time, rather more of an incentive based contract like last season as the veteran receiver may value contending for deeper playoff runs over a potential salary boost. 

Many could argue that the Ram's acquisition of Beckham midseason last year was instrumental in their deep playoff push to their eventual Super Bowl LVI victory against the Cincinnati Bengals in 2022. Beckham was possibly making a case to be the game's MVP as he scored a touchdown early before going down with the gruesome injury.

Beckham has reportedly been approached by multiple teams throughout the summer, including Von Miller, his former Rams teammate, who signed with the Buffalo Bills this offseason. Miller took to social media this summer to lure the 29-year-old receiver. 

The former LSU product will continue to keep his options open as more developments could arise for him throughout the 2022-23 NFL season.
