A long offseason of recovery and potential uncertainty awaits Odell Beckham Jr., who suffered a torn ACL during Super Bowl LVI — his last game with the Los Angeles Rams after hitting free agency.
Now working his way back to 100% health while trying to secure a long-term home, Beckham still has plenty of interest coming from Los Angeles, who acquired him midway through the 2021 season after being waived by the Cleveland Browns.
“He’s someone that we definitely want back,” Rams general manager Les Snead said on Tuesday (h/t Greg Beacham, AP). “A little bit more complex situation based on the injury. We envision it being similar but different circumstances to last year. When Odell is ready to play, we’d appreciate him being part of [the team].”

In eight regular-season games with Los Angeles, Beckham recorded 27 receptions for 305 yards and five touchdowns but stepped up big-time in the postseason with 21 receptions for 288 yards and another two scores — including the opening touchdown in Super Bowl LVI against the Cincinnati Bengals before going down with that torn ACL.
It appears as though the Rams are trying to keep some semblance of familiarity within the wide-receiving group around superstar Cooper Kupp. They acquired former Chicago Bears standout Allen Robinson before trading away Robert Woods to the Tennessee Titans.
