NFC West news: Rams signing WR Odell Beckham Jr.

Nov 11, 2021 at 1:23 PM--

Odell Beckham Jr. is headed to the NFC West. It won't be with the San Francisco 49ers, though. The three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver has agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Rams, who happen to play the Niners on Monday night at Levi's Stadium.

The Cleveland Browns released him on Monday. Beckham entered the waiver wire because the transaction occurred after the trade deadline.

"After careful consideration, internal discussions and conversations with Odell and his representation, we've determined that it is in the best interest of all parties involved that Odell no longer play for the Cleveland Browns," Browns general manager Andrew Berry said via a statement. "We appreciate all his efforts and contributions while in Cleveland, but we've just reached a point where it is best that we move forward as a team without Odell."

The New York Giants drafted Beckham (5-11, 198) out of LSU with the No. 12 overall pick in 2014. He has registered 17 receptions for 232 yards through six games with Cleveland this season. Beckham's last season of over 1,000 yards receiving came in his first year with the Browns. He recorded 1,035 receiving yards and four touchdowns during that 2019 campaign.

San Francisco was interested in acquiring Beckham during the 2019 offseason, but the team couldn't agree with the Giants on compensation. New York ended up sending the receiver to the Browns on March 12, 2019. The move became official the next day.

"We definitely looked into the Odell thing," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said in April of 2019. "John had been working on that for a few months, trying to see if something could happen. I just didn't think we had the stuff that [the Giants] wanted. It didn't work out."

Now, Shanahan will have to game plan against the star receiver.

Beckham, 29, has caught 504 passes for 7,062 yards with 51 touchdowns in 88 game appearances (84 starts) through his eight NFL seasons with the Giants and Browns. He has eclipsed 1,000 yards receiving five times over his career.

The San Francisco 49ers are just one win away from returning to the Super Bowl. They'll have to go through the Los Angeles Rams to get there. On Saturday night, the Niners won their third consecutive road game, a stunning 13-10 victory against the Green Bay Packers at a frigid Lambeau Field. They had to wait a day to learn who their next opponent would be. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosted the Rams at Raymond James Stadium in the other NFC Divisional Playoff game but fell to the visiting NFC West champions by a score of 30-27. That sets up a third 49ers-Rams matchup this season, with San Francisco winning the previous two. The 49ers won 31-10 in Week 10, and then again in Week 18—a thrilling 27-24 overtime victory that clinched the Bay Area team's playoff

The San Francisco 49ers got some good news on Sunday about the status of their All-Pro tackle, Trent Williams. Williams was seen using crutches after Saturday night's game against the Green Bay Packers, putting his status for next weekend's NFC Championship Game into question. "We're going to have to get some X-rays and stuff on him," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the 49ers' 13-10 victory. "I mean, I saw him hobbling around the whole second half, so I'm not sure yet." Williams got his right ankle wrapped after looking to be in pain in the third quarter. He stayed in the game but was later seen limping off the field. Williams played 53 of

In Week 18, Gould converted both of his field goals—from 42 and 24 yards—and all three point after attempts for a total of nine points in the overtime win at SoFi Stadium. He also punted twice with an average of 45 yards, including one downed inside the 20-yard line. Gould was forced to take over the punting duties after Mitch Wishnowsky left Sunday's game with a concussion. This is Gould's 10th-career Special Teams Player of the Week award.
