The free agent hailed Beckham’s decision and explained that he would’ve done the same as well. “Well, I think that Rams would definitely be one of the teams that I’d have considered if I was in his position. I like the Green bay play personally a little better. I mean, you get to go there for three-four months, lock-in, focus and don’t have to worry about anything outside of the game,” he said.

The Wide Receiver then highlighted why LA Rams is a good place to be in. “He goes out to LA. They have a really good team sitting in second place right now in NFC race. And they have a receiver in Cooper Kupp who is playing at an All-Pro level this year. Matthew Stafford, who can make all the throws in football and they have a really good defence.”

Odell Beckham Jr flops in his first game for the Rams; partnership with Stafford criticised

Stafford appeared to be out of rhythm in the offence for the second week in a row, as several of his throws were off-target. He finished with 243 yards throwing, a touchdown, and two interceptions on just 26 of 41 attempts. It didn’t help that several of his key receivers had a case of the drops at different times throughout the evening.

Stafford also appeared to have a misunderstanding with Beckham, who was making his Rams debut after signing on Friday. Stafford appeared to expect Beckham to continue moving deep up the centre of the field on a broken play, but he was delayed for a time. Due to this, Stafford’s throw was thrown off, and Ward was able to put himself under the ball to make the pick.
