Matthew Stafford Reacts to Rams Signing Odell Beckham Jr.

Odell Beckham is joining an already crowded receiving core for the Los Angeles Rams.

There’s one man who will be responsible for getting Odell Beckham Jr. involved into one of the NFL’s most explosive offenses.

Rams QB Matthew Stafford spoke about how the newly acquired wideout changes the dynamic of the current wide receiver room for the Rams.

“What he’s done in the past, what he’s been able to do in his career is well-documented. He’s a very talented player, a Pro Bowl receiver and it’s on me to give him the ball when he has the opportunities, our guys to scheme him up and get chances for him. I’m just excited that he’s part of our team,” Stafford said. “As far as what defenses do, I haven’t played a whole lot of defense in my life, but I imagine the more number of receivers we can get out on the field and run down the field, the scarier it’s going to be.”

Stafford understands the talent that Beckham possesses, even after his stint with the Browns didn’t pan out.

“I have a lot of respect for who he is as a player. Been watching him do his thing for a long time. Got a chance to play with him in a Pro Bowl. Watched the way he worked, the way we went about his business. Have a lot of respect for him,” Stafford said. “So, it’s an opportunity for us as a team. It’s an opportunity for him to come in here and prove himself to us. The receiver room is pretty special. I know he’ll fit right in and just continue to get better and hopefully to help us as a team.”

This is either going to go extremely well or OBJ will crash and burn.

If he can’t get the ball in Los Angeles, there’s really no team that will turn him back to his old self…
