Odell Beckham Jr. on being a Raven: ‘It’s been everything for me’

The Baltimore Ravens signed wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to a one-year deal worth up to $18 million before the 2023 NFL draft. He was asked to play a veteran role on the team, go out on the field, and make plays as a critical weapon for quarterback Lamar Jackson.

“It’s been everything for me. Sitting out a whole year, coming here, seeing these guys, seeing the way they prepare, seeing the way that they fought – it’s been so much to my life. Apart from my son and family, football is something that I’ve dedicated my entire life to, so, it sucks to come up short. Not everything goes the way that you want in life; you’re going to have adversity, [and] you’re going to have moments of letdown, but you’ve just got to keep your head [high] and continue to fight.”

While Beckham’s final 2023 stat line certainly doesn’t stand out, he made an impact in so many other ways for Baltimore. He also enjoyed his time with the team this year, saying it’s been “everything” for him. He also reflected on the Ravens’ AFC Championship loss, mentioning that you have to continue to fight.
