The Rams are optimistic that they will sign Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham's COO Kevin Demoff has just spoken out.
Demoff said to Jourdan Rodrigue, TheAthletic.com, Monday that if there wasn't a salary cap we could have signed Odell months earlier and would love to," Is it a multiyear deal? Is it a one year deal? There are many variables that can affect Odell.
"The only thing that hasn’t changed is our love for him and desire to see him there. He's made it clear on social media that he wants to be there. Do I believe we can reach a deal in the shortest time? Yes."
Although the Rams do not have a timeline for when they may close a deal, Demoff stated that both sides are in an "open dialog."
Beckham is still working to repair the ACL that he injured in his left knee while playing in Super Bowl LVI. He required surgery February 22. Beckham is hopeful of a faster recovery than the second time he tore the ACL. It took him 11 months to recover from the Oct. 25, 2020 injury.
Demoff stated that Odell is feeling a bit sluggish due to the fact that he has been undergoing rehab and will be returning mid-to late in the year.
The Rams made some moves at the position but Beckham is still wanted by the team. Coach Sean McVay stated last week that the Rams would love Beckham to resign.
Beckham signed with Rams last November. He caught 27 passes for 295 yards and five touchdowns in Los Angeles' regular season. In the postseason, he added 23 receptions for 339 yard with three scores.
Demoff stated that he would be happy to have him back. "We would welcome him home tomorrow, even though he crashed Sean’s wedding. It was great to see him there. . . . It's a good sign if you show up at the wedding of the head coach and he is still open to signing you.
Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson are available options for the Rams, as well as Van Jefferson, Van Jefferson, and Tutu atwell.
