Odell Beckham Jr. planning creative move with Rams salary

Odell Beckham Jr. is only on a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Rams, but he is doing his best to make the most of it.

The star receiver announced in a tweet Monday that he will be receiving his salary from the Rams in Bitcoin. The move is part of a partnership between Beckham and mobile payment service Cash App. He will also be giving away a total of $1 million in Bitcoin to fans pursuant to the partnership.

Beckham is making $750,000 in base salary from the Rams this season with an additional $500,000 signing bonus. His contract with the team also contains another $3 million in incentives.

We previously learned that Beckham’s contract played a part in his ending up with the Rams instead of another top NFC team. With this latest move, it looks like the three-time Pro Bowler will be trying to maximize every penny of that contract.
