The Los Angeles Rams are making a move to bolster their wide receiver corps, as the team signed receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Thursday.


The Cleveland Browns waived Beckham on Monday, and he went unclaimed on Tuesday. The Browns excused Beckham from practice last week following an inflammatory social media post from the wide receiver’s father, where Odell Beckham Sr. posted an 11-minute video on Instagram of Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield missing his son on throws this season. Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James also posted a tweet with the hashtag “#FreeOdell.”

Beckham Jr. adds another receiving threat to a Rams offense that already features wide receivers Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson. The Rams recently released DeSean Jackson while losing rookies Tutu Atwell and Jacob Harris to season-ending injuries.
