Major Odell Beckham Jr. Rumor Swirling This Monday

5 Ways that Odell Beckham Jr. Improves the Cleveland Browns

A significant rumor involving free-agent veteran wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and the San Francisco 49ers is picking up steam this week. 

Beckham, 29, has yet to make his free-agency decision and likely won't do so until he's 100-percent healthy. Two teams are reportedly in the running to win the OBJ sweepstakes: the Bills and Rams. 

However, the Rams were taken to the woodshed by the 49ers of San Francisco at SoFi Stadium on Sunday afternoon. It's possible Beckham now realizes the 49ers are probably the best team in the NFC West. 

Combine that with the fact that the Niners went all-in to acquire Christian McCaffrey from the Panthers, have Super Bowl aspirations and reside on the West Coast and you have a clear argument as to why Beckham-to-the-49ers rumor makes sense. 

Oh, and throw in the fact ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Monday he wouldn't be surprised if the 49ers get involved considering they were last year. 

"The 49ers were in on OBJ last year so why wouldn't they be this season," Schefter told Pat McAfee

Interestingly enough, the 49ers also just released veteran wide receiver Willie Snead. He was the team's No. 3 option at wideout vs. the Rams on Sunday. 

Fans are starting to get excited about the 49ers possibly getting involved in the Odell Beckham Jr. sweepstakes. 

"Obj a niner. Idk how many times I’ve tweeted this but maybe this time is fr. Please @obj @JohnLynch49ers @49ers," one fan wrote.

"May I also add , Dear #49ers , if we are all in , please sign @obj. Please and Thank You !!" another fan wrote.

If the 49ers are all-in on the 2022 season, signing Odell Beckham Jr. may be in play.
