The New England Patriots pitch against Odell Beckham Jr. has been revealed.

According to Dov Kleiman, an independent NFL reporter, Patriots offered Beckham a contract that was slightly above the minimum. This offer correlated with the offers of the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints. It was slightly better than the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs’ veteran minimum offers (which is roughly $ 1.075 million for an eighth year player).

Eventually Beckham signed a deal with the Los Angeles Rams.

“In addition to #Rams he signed that Patriots, Sea hawks, packer, Saints and chiefs all made contract offers for the then free agent WR Odell Beckham, ”says Kleiman. “All similar offers, GB and KC, were minimum offers. SEA, NE and NO were slightly above the minimum. In the end, LAR prevailed. “

The Beckham sweepstakes involved a number of teams – including the Pittsburgh Steelers, who made a late run for the recipient towards the end – but the Rams’ contract offer ultimately won the game.

Beckhams Contract with the Rams is a one-year contract which includes a base salary of $ 750,000 and a signature bonus of $ 500,000. There are, however, $ 3 million in incentives that can increase the full value of the deal to $ 4.25 million.

At the time of his signing, Beckham was projected as the # 3 wide receiver for the Rams. That has of course changed with Robert Woods ACL injury. However, his contract – and his role in the Rams’ offensive – show where Beckham’s priorities lie.

With the Patriots, Beckham would have projected the team’s top receiver straight away. However, it would also have happened with a rookie quarterback in Mac Jones with less contract incentives.

The appeal of playing for more money with the possibility of winning a Super Bowl as a secondary option seems to have been a bigger sale than winning a playoff contender as a top option.

When the Patriots beat the Cleveland Browns in a 45-7 drubbing that further cemented New England as playoff contenders, head coach Bill Belichick had the perfect description of the team’s victory.

It was a really “great day” for her, said Belichick.

“Fortunately we did our part and I thought the team played really well today,” said Belichick on Sunday November 14th after the game. “There were so many great games and players and the preparation we had this week, you can really use anyone and talk about almost anyone. Long touchdown drives. You know, sales, competitive moves in foosball. Just big games after big games by so many different people. “

While playing against a team battling them for a wildcard spot in the AFC playoffs, the Patriots outperformed the Browns in every facet of the game.

New England outperformed Cleveland 452 to 217 in the total yardage division, averaging 7.3 yards per game to the Browns’ 3.7 average, and rushed for 184 yards compared to Cleveland’s 99 rushing yards.

Most importantly, not only did the Patriots win the head-to-head tiebreaker against the Browns because of their victory, they also advanced to 6-4. In other words, they’re essentially two games ahead of Cleveland in the standings and have rooted themselves in 6th place in the playoff race.

Definitely a “great day”.
