Rams still pursuing Odell Beckham despite Allen Robinson signing?
On paper, the Los Angeles Rams signing Allen Robinson would seem to spell the end of Odell Beckham Jr.’s time with the franchise. In practice, that may not necessarily be true.
Reports indicated Thursday that the Rams remain hopeful of bringing Beckham back even after signing Robinson. Any deal with Beckham is expected to take time, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, due in part to Beckham’s ACL injury.
I am also told this move does NOT mean the Rams don't also want to re-sign Beckham. That deal is tricky and may take some time to work out considering injury and eventual return timeline. https://t.co/ZRhJwrZOf0

The Rams have never been shy about collecting weapons. When they originally signed Beckham, they already had Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods holding down the wide receiver position. The fact that Woods got hurt almost immediately made them look smarter for being so aggressive.
Beckham was not the only star the Rams wanted to retain. That did not work out, so perhaps that will add some extra urgency in trying to keep Beckham.
