Odell Beckham Jr. was not coming back anyway before his injury
As with Miller and to some degree Michel, Odell Beckham Jr. was a short-term rental for the 2021 Rams. He came over to Los Angeles after a bitter divorce with the Cleveland Browns mid-season. While he was not the player he once was with the New York Giants, Beckham did show signs of greatness in Rams uniform. He played fantastically prior to tearing his ACL right before halftime.
And that is the biggest reason why he is not likely to be back. Keep in mind the biggest reason Beckham was a Ram in the first place. He was replacing an injured star receiver in Robert Woods. Though Beckham’s peak is higher than Woods’, the latter’s return from injury will be far sooner than Beckham’s. He will have to rehab this offseason, hoping he has enough time to play Week 1.
No doubt this injury will dampen his market, so this could conceivably help his slim likelihood of returning to the Rams. However, his role will be greatly diminished if the comes back to Los Angeles on a new contract. Look for Beckham to find the best mix for himself when it comes to playing in a big media market, playing for a big brand or playing for a winning football organization.
Much of the 2021 Rams will be back, but do not count on Beckham, Michel and Miller returning.
