NFL: OBJ opts for Rams over Packers

Odell Beckham Jr has joined the Rams

Odell Beckham Jr chose the Los Angeles Rams - reportedly picking them over the Green Bay Packers - as his next destination after signing a one-year deal in the wake of his mid-season release by the Cleveland Browns.

The 29-year-old wideout is expected to play some part in the Rams' primetime Monday night match-up with the 49ers, for which Los Angeles areĀ 5/9 to win, while San Francisco can be backed at 8/5.

Beckham becomes the latest high-profile addition to the Rams' roster following their off-season deal for quarterback Matthew Stafford and swoop for former Denver Broncos edge-rusher Von Miller before this month's trade deadline.

The disgruntled receiver forced his way out of Cleveland last week after the Browns were unable to strike a deal to move him on before the 2nd November cut off. He cleared waivers on Tuesday, allowing him to become a free agent and join any team of his choosing.

Miller and fellow Nike athlete Lebron James, who tweeted the hashtag "#FreeOBJ" amid last week's turmoil, were among the first to welcome the former New York Giants star to the City of Angels.

Beckham takes Rams option

NFL Network's Kim Jones reported on Thursday that Beckham had pared his options down to the Packers and the Rams, eventually committing to the latter.

Her NFL Network college Ian Rapoport stated the one-year agreement is worth up to $4.25 million with a $750,000 salary for the rest of the season, $500,000 signing bonus and another $3 million available in team-based incentives based on how the Rams finish.

"Let's chase this ring family!!!!" Miller posted on Instagram alongside a photo of him speaking to Beckham, who could end up earning more with the Rams than he would have done with the Browns if Los Angeles go all the way, on a video call.
