The Real Reason Odell Beckham Jr. Signed With the Rams


Colin Cowherd: “I know, I know, OBJ to the Rams doesn’t make sense. Let’s make sense of it. He has a house in Los Angeles, the Rams already had an over-the-top veteran piece in Desean Jackson – he left, and it’s a need in their eyes. He’s very close with LeBron James and his camp, we know that. OBJ has interests beyond just football, he’s brittle and he knows it. He doesn’t want to play with a rookie quarterback in New England, or an average quarterback in New Orleans, doesn’t want to be a clear number two in Green Bay... Wisconsin is not really his vibe. Don’t undersell the LeBron James connection. LeBron has a massive entertainment company, is very successful in Los Angeles, OBJ has interests beyond football, clearly, and that connection matters. LeBron stumped for him, LeBron went on social media when OBJ wanted to get out of Cleveland, that’s a real connection. I’m sure LeBron and OBJ have had conversations about what to do beyond football. Maybe there is an idea or five about a show. I get it, just because it wasn’t on the radar. LA is super aggressive. I know, I know, the taxes in LA, nobody wants to live here!... Except great athletes!” (Full Video Above)
