After missing a year of football due to a torn ACL suffered in the Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams, superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has an opportunity to start fresh after signing with the Baltimore Ravens to be Lamar Jackson’s top target in the passing game.
Usually, it can be very difficult for a player of Beckham’s caliber to bounce back after a season-ending knee injury, especially when it has happened more than once.
Although Beckham is arguably on the downside of his career, he has a chance to resurrect his career in Baltimore, and he’s using Denver Nuggets star Jamal Murray as motivation on how to bounce back and win at the highest level via NBA on ESPN.

After missing the better part of two seasons due to knee issues, Murray bounced back with a vengeance during the 2022-23 NBA season as he started to resemble the dominant player of old, which obviously helped the Nuggets tremendously.
On Monday night, Murray was able to help the Nuggets win their first title in the franchise’s history, as they got the best of the Miami Heat in Denver at Ball Arena to come out on top in the NBA Finals.
Although Nikola Jokic gets the bulk of the credit for the Nuggets’ success this season, and justifiably so, Murray’s impact on this team was huge during the 2022-23 campaign, and Denver doesn’t go on to win it all without him.
As for Beckham, he’ll be part of arguably the best offense on paper heading into the 2023 NFL season and may be the missing piece to the championship puzzle for Baltimore as long as he can stay healthy.
