Odell Beckham Jr Reveals He Almost Signed With Patriots and Saints Before Arriving at LA Rams

Odell Beckham Jr. is where he's never been before: the Super Bowl. He nearly wasn't. Several interested teams pursued Beckham following his release from the Cleveland Browns during the 2021 regular season, including the Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints, and New England Patriots. Beckham was asked Monday about just how close he came to signing with a couple of those clubs, and the answer was the same: Very close.

What Odell Beckham said on this

"I was close. Very close," 

Odell Beckham added

"It just didn't feel like the right time. Right place. Wrong time."

Beckham's journey from the slow start to the key role

Beckham got off to a slow start but ended up playing a key role for the Rams in their run to Super Bowl LVI. It's a destination he likely wouldn't have reached with New Orleans, which missed the playoffs, and New England, which was blown out of Super Wild Card Weekend by a superior Buffalo Bills squad.

What Odell Beckham said of Los Angeles

 "Aside from Jalen Ramsey, Von Miller. ... It just felt right in my heart and it felt right in my gut. It felt like other things I was trying to make work and this was the one that was calling me."
