Rams GM weighs in on possible Odell Beckham return
Odell Beckham Jr. seemed to make a very good impression on the Los Angeles Rams after joining the team midseason. The wide receiver’s knee injury, however, has complicated his potential return for 2022.
Rams GM Les Snead said Wednesday that the team would theoretically like to have Beckham back next season. However, Snead did add that Beckham’s recovery from his torn ACL could have an impact on whether it happens or not.
Rams GM Les Snead says “yes, we would definitely like” to re-sign WR Odell Beckham. Adds knee injury and recovery does factor into how they would then structure their timeline for his potential return and roster/position plan in the meantime as he does recover.

Beckham tore his ACL in the Super Bowl and underwent successful surgery to repair it. He had made no secret before the game that he would love to stay with the Rams.
Beckham caught five touchdowns in eight regular season games after joining midseason following his release by Cleveland. The veteran receiver added two more touchdown grabs in the playoffs, including one in the Super Bowl before suffering his injury.
