The Los Angeles Rams signing Odell Beckham Jr. as a free agent was a textbook power move. The Rams, who were already loaded at the wide receiver position and had a great offense, improved it even more by adding a former Pro Bowler.

General manager Les Snead explained that players with Beckham’s skillset thrive under head coach Sean McVay. Per Stu Jackson of

“Anyone who can run the entire route tree has thrived in what Sean’s evolved to, and he’s one of those players,” Snead said.

Snead also explained that, since Los Angeles lost three wide receivers before signing Beckham, he provides crucial depth at the position along with Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson.

McVay explained how Beckham’s multi-dimensional game and intelligence make him so effective.

“There’s not any limitations to his game,” McVay said. “He’s got the ability to play all over the formation, he can win isolations, he can win short, intermediate, down the field. His career resume kind of speaks for itself. And so that’s an intriguing thing to be able to partner up with anybody that has that natural skill set. Just talking a little bit of ball with them, you can tell he’s got a great football IQ, even just watching them over the last couple years, he can see the game makes sense to him.”

McVay acknowledged that he will still have to find a solidified role for Beckham. He also suggested that OBJ may not play in the Rams’ next game, a Monday Night Football matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

Whenever Beckham does debut with the Rams, they’ll have even more firepower as they hunt for the Super Bowl.
