While watching Odell Beckham play on Monday night, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson declared on Twitter that he was not the problem on the Cleveland Browns.
Earlier this year, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and the Cleveland Browns agreed to a mutual parting of ways. That stemmed from Beckham’s father criticizing quarterback Baker Mayfield in a social media post, showing him not targeting the wide receiver. After clearing waivers, Beckham signed on with the Los Angeles Rams.
On Monday night, Beckham was having a huge game against the top-seed in the NFC in the Arizona Cardinals.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver — and fellow LSU legend — Justin Jefferson took to Twitter to declare that Beckham “was not the problem.”
Justin Jefferson says Odell Beckham Jr. ‘was not the problem’
Yeah, Beckham is doing just fine in Los Angeles.
Based on what viewers of the Week 14 edition of Monday Night Football, Beckham has turned into a pivotal figure in Los Angeles’ offense. That was evident in the first quarter when quarterback Matthew Stafford hit Beckham in the end zone for a two-yard touchdown, giving the Rams a 7-3 lead over the Cardinals.
Signing Beckham was seen as a luxury for the Rams at first. But later, news broke that Robert Woods tore his ACL in practice, which immediately propelled Beckham up to the No. 2 wideout spot on the depth chart.
Prior to his release, Beckham played in six games for the Browns, where he caught 17-of-34 targets for 232 yards and zero touchdowns. Beckham recorded nine receptions for 127 yards and two touchdowns with the Rams entering Week 14.
If his performance against the Cardinals proved anything, it is that Beckham is thriving with the Rams.
