The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the few teams who entered Odell Beckham Jr.’s sweepstakes, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, but emerged as losers when the star-wide receiver decided to sign a deal with the Los Angeles Rams.

Odell signed a $ 4.25 million one-year deal with Los Angeles that also allows Beckham to be part of the Money he left in Cleveland. Even so, the Rams got Beckham on a very fair deal that was affordable for a team like the Chiefs.

So what kind of offer has the reigning AFC champions made to Odell, a 29-year-old receiver who hasn’t registered more than 1,100 yards since 2016 or more than seven touchdowns since the same year?

There were six teams that offered Beckham a contract: Rams, Patriots, Seahawks, Packers, Saints, and Chiefs. Of these six teams, Kansas City and Green Bay Odell gave “minimum offers” independent reporter Dov Kleiman.

Meanwhile, New England, New Orleans, and Seattle all gave offers a little above the minimum.

In the end, Los Angeles had the money, team, and locker room that Odell was looking for during his brief free agent stint. The Chiefs – who have a stagnant offense that, according to Spotrac, has waived 19 league sales and a little more than $ 4 million in cap space – stayed in the dust.

Mathieu and Beckham shared the field at LSU during the 2011 season. They were drafted into the NFL a year apart, but they have maintained their friendship over the years.
