Odell Beckham Jr. could be playing in the same formations as Darrell Henderson, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp; this comes after ODJ’s surprising move to the Rams. The rumored lineup strategy comes ahead of Beckham Jr.’s much anticipated performance for The Los Angeles Rams.
Ian Rapoport reported on Beckham’s impressive one-year deal, “The Rams gave WR Odell Beckham Jr a 1-year deal worth up to $4.25M, source said. Details: — $500K signing bonus — $750K for the rest of the season — Another $3M available in team-based incentives for how they finish the regular season and the postseason.”
According to NFL Network’s Peter Schrager, The Rams intend to run 10 personnel from their usual 11 following the inclusion of three-time Pro Bowl wideout Beckham. Schrager made the revelation during the latest edition of Good Morning Football.
“I knew McVay has always lusted after Odell Beckham,” Schrager said. He continued, “This goes back to when Odell was on the (New York) Giants and he was rumored of possibly being traded from the Giants and the Browns offered too much.”
This implantation will see ODJ hopefully see the most opportunity to create an impact.
“The Giants weren’t going to turn that down but Sean has always had his eye on Odell. And it was actually several other players who called him but McVay got on the phone with Odell Beckham two days ago and basically laid out the plans.
“‘We’re gonna go four-wide, we’re gonna be in 10 personnel, we’re gonna get looks, we’re gonna bring you in here, we’re gonna go win a Super Bowl. Like, let’s go do this! What are we doing? Do you want to go anywhere else and maybe get more touches?’”
It remains to be seen whether The Rams proceed with the rumored formation for their newest recruit. The NFL team is known for running 11 personnel as well as operating out of empty sets in order to score at will.
