Odell Beckham Jr., a free-agent wide receiver, made an announcement on his Instagram page on Sunday revealing that he had signed with the Baltimore Ravens. According to a source who spoke to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the deal that Beckham Jr. signed is a one-year contract worth up to $18 million, including $15 million guaranteed. The deal also includes incentives.
It is intriguing that Beckham Jr. chose to sign with the Ravens, particularly given the ongoing situation with their quarterback, Lamar Jackson. It’s possible that the Ravens are hoping that by signing Beckham Jr., they can extend an olive branch to Jackson and begin to repair any damage that has been done to their relationship. However, given what has been said thus far, it seems unlikely that this will be enough to completely heal any rifts that may exist.
There are a few possible explanations for Beckham Jr.’s decision to sign with the Ravens. It could be that he has spoken to Jackson at some point and has been reassured about the situation. Alternatively, it could simply be that Baltimore was the only team that was offering the kind of money that Beckham Jr. was looking for.
Regardless of the reasoning behind Beckham Jr.’s decision, the Ravens offense should expect to see a significant boost in their wide receiver production as a result of this signing. Beckham Jr. is an incredibly talented player who has consistently put up impressive numbers throughout his career, and he should be a valuable addition to the Ravens’ offensive lineup.
