Odell Beckham Jr. Pens Classy Farewell to Ravens Amid Free Agency Bid

The Baltimore Ravens all but signaled the end of Odell Beckham Jr.’s tenure with the club when they released the veteran wide receiver with a post-June 1 designation last Wednesday. 

But Beckham confirmed he won’t be returning to the Ravens next season, penning a goodbye message to teammates and fans on Instagram. 

"Swea on everything I appreciate the Flock more than yall could EVER imagine. Did everything I could wit the opportunities I had. Wish I got to do it big for yall 💍. Thank you for the Vibez! To the City of Baltimore I fxck wit yall forever FRRRR. And most importantly to my brothers over there this shxt a lifetime sentence, I love yall! BiggestTruzzz," Beckham wrote.

Beckham, who signed a one-year contract with Baltimore last April, expressed regret in his farewell that he couldn’t deliver a championship to Ravens fans. 

The New Orleans native appeared in 14 games for the Ravens in 2023, tallying 35 receptions for 565 yards and three touchdowns. 

Most importantly, Beckham, who missed just two games with the Ravens in '23 due to an ankle injury, largely proved to teams that he was healthy after missing the entire '22 season rehabbing a torn ACL he suffered during Super Bowl LVI when he was a member of the Los Angeles Rams

As many as 12 teams expressed interest in Beckham when he was a free agent last offseason, although there has been little reported interest in the three-time Pro Bowl selection thus far in free agency.
