“I really want him back.”

“Oh, of course. I really want Odell back on our team,” McVay said during an appearance on "The Rich Eisen Show" (hat-tip NFL.com) this week. “He’s a guy that, in a short amount of time, we were able to develop a really special relationship. I thought he brought a great spark to our team. I thought he played really well. He’s a great teammate.”

Beckham ended his single Rams season with both a Super Bowl ring and an ACL tear sustained during the title game.

Where Does Rams’ Sean McVay Rank Among NFL Coaches?

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay’s place among his NFL peers has been set, according to a recent ranking from CBS Sports.

The defending champions keep making moves in the receivers room, with the trade of Robert Woods, the signing of Allen Robinson and a plan to raise and extend Cooper Kupp.

But there is apparently still room for OBJ - who has made it clear that staying in Los Angeles is his preferred choice - even though his rehab will keep him off the field for the early portion of the 2022 NFL season.
