If Odell Beckham Jr. didn't tear his ACL in the Super Bowl, he was well on his way to have an insane performance en route to the Los Angeles Rams' title.

Beckham, the former New York Giant, was signed by the Rams for the remainder of the 2021 season after the Cleveland Browns released him, and boy was he a huge pickup.

The Rams seemingly replaced him in the offseason with Allen Robinson, but Beckham is still more than welcome in southern California.

In fact, the Rams left the free agent a full locker with his nameplate at their training facility in Thousand Oaks, according to The Athletic.

The Rams scooped Beckham off the waiver wire after there were frustrations between Beckham (well, his father) and the Browns, and he fit right in.

In eight regular-season games with L.A., Beckham caught 27 balls — five of them touchdowns — for 305 yards, but he turned it up in the playoffs.

In his first three playoff games, he totaled 19 receptions for 236 yards (113 of them in the NFC Championship) and two touchdowns.

He also caught the first touchdown of Super Bowl LVI but tore his ACL in the second quarter of the game. It was the same ACL he tore in the 2020 season.

Beckham's playing status for 2022 is certainly up in the air, but he's proven to come back as a legit force from such an injury as recently as a year ago.
