Odell Beckham Jr. holds a practice session for NFL teams on Friday after missing the season with a cruciate ligament tear
Odell Beckham Jr. is still looking for a team after missing all of last year with a cruciate ligament rupture and strained negotiations, but he could soon change that.
The former Los Angeles Rams wide receiver, who can sign with any team at any time, will hold a practice for NFL teams Friday in Arizona, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. The New York Giants will be among the teams in attendance, per ESPN’s Jordan Ranaan.
It’s been 13 months since Beckham went down with a knee injury in the second quarter of Super Bowl LVI, though he later claimed he tore his ACL long before that. Beckham was keen to sign a contract with a team for 2022 when he was recovering, but a deal never materialized.
At first the Rams wanted him back. But wait, Beckham said them never offered him a deal in the offseason. Then Beckham teased his interest in the Buffalo Bills. The Rams bounced back with an offer, but then he visited the Dallas Cowboys while simultaneously flirting with the New York Giants. That interest didn’t seem to last long. And then Beckham said he saw no point in playing the regular season other than he didn’t sign for the playoffs either.
The common thread running through all these failed negotiations and dalliances was obviously Beckham, who wanted a lot more than he was ever offered. Add in a bizarre plane crash and you have a much talked about season that never was.
Now Beckham goes into this offseason with a clean slate and hopes that teams will appreciate him more as he moves further from his cruciate ligament rupture. Up until this injury, Beckham’s Rams tenure was viewed as a huge success story, with the former Pro Bowler rushing for 288 receiving yards and two touchdowns in 3.5 playoff games.
