Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. joined the Los Angeles Rams midway into the 2022 season.
However, it’s the best scenario he could imagine after winning Super Bowl LVI with the team.
Getting to the big game also gave him all the incentives stipulated in his contract.
He earned a total of $3 million after becoming a key contributor during the Rams’ playoff run.
That amount is four times bigger than the base salary he received when he signed after getting released by the Cleveland Browns.
Unfortunately, he will miss significant time during the 2022 season due to the torn ACL he suffered during the Super Bowl.
But while he will be sidelined for a while, it seems like the wideout has made up his mind on where to play next.

NFL writer G.T. Bobby Thompson tweeted, “#Rams WR Odell Beckham Jr plans to avoid free agency and re-sign with the team.”
Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson first reported the story.
Beckham could command a massive deal if he decides to go elsewhere, given his performance during the last postseason.
However, he feels that staying with the Rams will be the best decision on his part.
The Rams Will Run It Back
It’s uncertain how long Beckham will be out of action next season.
But he would like to remain with the team that made him a champion.
Besides, the Rams have a legitimate shot of winning another Super Bowl if they get everyone back.
Aside from Beckham, Von Miller, Sony Michel, Joseph Noteboom, and Austin Corbett are some of their other notable free agents.
Likewise, they would have to address Andrew Whitworth‘s spot if he decides to retire.
Signing all their players will make the Rams one of the favorites to win Super Bowl LVII.
