The addition of former Tigers wideout Odell Beckham Jr. proved crucial for the Los Angeles Rams in their Super Bowl run last season.

He was acquired after he was waived midway through the season by the Cleveland Browns, and though he only had 27 catches for 305 yards with Los Angeles, he also finished with five touchdowns after recording none in six games with Cleveland.

Beckham’s season came to a disappointing end with a torn ACL in the Super Bowl win over the Cincinnati Bengals and Joe Burrow, but he was apparently dealing with a knee injury even prior to that.

In a tweet posted on Saturday, Beckham said that he played the back half of the 2021 season “without an ACL.”

Though he doesn’t say it specifically, this has led some to believe Beckham had torn his ACL during his time with the Browns. Whether the Rams were aware of the injury and allowed him to play through it remains unclear.

Regardless, this is certainly surprising news if true, and it makes Beckham’s production even more impressive.

He signed a one-year deal with Los Angeles, and he is currently a free agent. He has said he would be interested in returning to the team, but he remains on the table as we come down the offseason’s home stretch.
