Meanwhile, Rams chief working officer Kevin Demoff just lately vowed he’ll stay “aggressive” in “trying to build the best team that we can build,” and which will imply bringing Beckham again to the membership in some unspecified time in the future this summer season or fall.
“If we didn’t have a salary cap, we could’ve signed Odell months ago and would’ve loved to,” Demoff advised The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue on Monday. “Is it a multi-year deal, is it a one-year deal? All kinds of variables that come into Odell.
“The one variable that hasn’t modified is how a lot we love him and wish him to be there. I feel he is expressed, over social, his need to be right here. Am I optimistic we will get a deal executed over time? Yes.”

During the playoffs, OBJ contributed 21 receptions for 288 yards and two scores earlier than his damage.

“With Odell, I think, given the rehab (and) the timeline of coming back probably mid-to-later in the year, I just think that the sense of urgency both from his side and probably from our side — and maybe other teams — is not right there, for him,” Demoff continued.
Rodrigue stories that one supply mentioned the Rams “could see a late-November return to play for Beckham” assuming he does not expertise any setback throughout his rehab.
