Odell Beckham Jr. signs with Los Angeles
Odell Beckham Jr. is headed to the west coast. The former LSU standout has chosen to sign with the Los Angeles Rams.
There was confusion surrounding Beckham’s signing Thursday afternoon. ESPN’s Adam Schefter was first to report Beckham was signing with the Los Angeles Rams. After Schefter’s tweet, Josina Anderson and Kim Jones each tweeted that Beckham was still deciding between the Rams and Green Bay Packers. Jourdan Rodrigue, who covers the Rams for The Athletic, noted that the Rams published an article about agreeing to terms with Beckham then took it down minutes later.
