Rams coach Sean McVay and his players have made no secret of their desire for star free-agent receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to return.
But the Rams’ pursuit of Beckham apparently hasn’t been as smooth as one of the routes taken by the three-time Pro Bowl player, who is recovering from knee surgery and isn’t expected to be ready to play until late in the season.
In a series of tweets between Beckham and other users on Wednesday, Beckham hinted that negotiations with the Rams don’t appear to be progressing very well.
“LA knows where I wanted to be… but they didn’t offer it to me…. Anything!” he wrote. “So I know what people want from me, I know my worth and the offer doesn’t reflect that. So it’s hard to say I can come back even though I thought I finally had this one Found home!”
In another tweet, he said the Rams’ offer was “the lowest of the lows.”
“But YES LA treated me normal and special in one breath, we’ll see how that turned out! For both sides,” he wrote. “I went out to win knowing the risk of playing without an ACL… and then I got the lowest offers after going into next season. Impossible.”
Beckham signed with the Rams midway through the 2021 season and helped them reach Super Bowl LVI. He caught an early touchdown pass in the Super Bowl win over the Cincinnati Bengals but suffered a knee injury that required surgery, his second major surgery in three years.
Beckham is expected to be highly sought after by playoff contenders.
McVay said he was made aware of the tweets but didn’t sound like the Rams had given up on Beckham’s signing.
“I love Odell, we have a constant dialogue,” McVay said. “I think he also knows that this is certainly not the last that would come from us.
“I don’t know exactly what it is. He knows how we feel about him. We have a little time. But dear Odell. Nothing but good things come from me.”
