Very affletic play! I could see why talking heads get giddy at his upside.
Second torn ACL for Beckham, who already looked noticeably slower than he used to. This one could finish off his career. Likely inadvertent good news for Kupp, solidifying his go-to position that much more.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Odell Beckham tore his ACL in the Super Bowl against the Bengals. OBJ writhed in pain after a non-contact injury just before halftime in the Rams' Super Bowl win. The free-agent-to-be had caught two of his three targets for 52 yards and a first quarter touchdown, creating separation at will and out-muscling Bengals defenders. The injury -- his second torn ACL in two years -- is a devastating blow for Beckham, whose resurgence as a pass-catching force in the LA offense was a bright spot of the 2021 NFL season. He'll likely settle for a short-term deal with a good offensive team where he might serve as the WR2 or WR3. Kansas City has rumored interest in Beckham.
Rams are letting Troy Reeder go as a free agent. Let’s hope he lands somewhere else.
The Rams signed Allen Robinson, who is a very solid possession receiver, or at least was until last season but that can be attributed in part to the mess that was the Bears under The Rodent.
Robert Woods is coming back from a blown out knee and like Robinson isn't a speed burner. So I'm hoping this means Cooper Kupp will be used more on the outside than before. He's a great piece who can be moved anywhere and effortlessly get open. Robinson shouldn't hurt Kupp's value.
I’m glad the Rams are keeping their foot on the gas. But, I guess they’re not ready to rely on Skowronek as a top 3 receiver.
Ben wasn't quite ready for prime time as a rookie. Hopefully he sticks as the fourth receiver and shows enough in '22 to justify becoming the third receiver in '23. And there's no way of knowing when Woods will be close to one hundred percent coming off a serious knee injury.
Hopefully Ben Skowronek can take advantage. It would be great to see the best team in the league giving lots of playing time to two White receivers, reminiscent of the Patriots of not so long ago (who even had three White receivers on the field at times):
Coach Sean McVay announced Van Jefferson will undergo knee surgery this week and is uncertain for Week 1 against the Bills. The Rams host Buffalo to open the 2022 season in 38 days, and Jefferson will be up against the clock to be ready after a specialist advised a clean-up procedure. We assume it's some sort of scope for Jefferson, which is typically a 4-6 weeks recovery. On Monday, McVay again mentioned free agent Odell Beckham's name, though he wouldn't be an option to help the Rams while Jefferson is out, as OBJ likely won't play before November due to ACL rehab. Ben Skowronek, Tutu Atwell, Jacob Harris, and others will be in the mix for third wideout duties behind Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson.
Good news for Skowronek. So sad to hear about Van's knee. Next will be the 150lb midget Tutu.
The Under-Appreciation of Ben Skowronek is Out of Control
