Stroman speaks about Odell Beckham Jr.

Stroman took to Twitter to congratulate NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. who recently signed on with the Los Angeles Rams. The wide receiver had been coming under some flak recently. Beckham Jr. was going through a bit of a dry patch when it came to touchdowns, but that has since cleared up.

Several other users on Twitter also added their two cents. Adding that the criticism the NFL player received was not down a lack of his ability but rather a stark drop in his contribution when it came to touchdowns. The gridiron was aching for the wide receiver to perform.
