It was reported earlier on Thursday that free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had already agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Rams. This type of news travels fast and none other than Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, who himself is a big football fan, just had to react to this recent OBJ development.
LeBron took to Twitter as the Lakers star welcomed LA’s newest star in Odell Beckham Jr.:
It didn’t take too long for Beckham to find a new home after he was waived by the Cleveland Brows. After clearing the waivers, several teams were linked to a possible swoop for the three-time Pro-Bowler. Several high-profile squads were reportedly closing in on OBJ, which included the likes of the Kansas City Chiefs, the Green Bay Packers, and the Seattle Seahawks, to name a few.
Beckham does love the bright lights, though, and Los Angeles was an obvious choice for him. For his part, it is clear that LeBron is more than happy to welcome his buddy to his city. Hollywood just got another star in Odell Beckham Jr. Let’s just hope this highly-anticipated move translates to noteworthy performances on the field, and of course, more wins for the Rams.
