Rams RB Todd Gurley Excited About the Prospect of Bringing WR Odell Beckham Jr. to Los Angeles

Odell Beckham Jr., Giants star receiver, has been linked to the Rams since news broke this week that the Giants were shopping — or at least testing the market — for a playmaker seeking a mega-extension as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.

Rams running back Todd Gurley knows Beckham and would be excited, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

“Oh yeah, that’s my guy,” Gurley said at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood, where he took part in an event hosted by Roc Nation, his representation firm.

Like coach Sean McVay and general manager Les Snead, Gurley appeared wary of saying too much about a player on another team.

But when told that McVay spoke this week about how Beckham, hypothetically, might fit into a high-powered offense that features Gurley and quarterback Jared Goff, Gurley agreed with McVay’s assessment that there are always enough snaps to keep everyone happy.

“There’s always enough snaps,” Gurley, speaking hypothetically, said with a broad grin. “There’s always enough snaps.

“If we had him, man, it would be awesome. I’d be happy, Goff will be happy, coach McVay will be happy, [owner Stan] Kroenke, the whole team would be.”

Asked whether Beckham has expressed interest to him about coming to L.A., Gurley smiled.

“Hmm, I don’t want to say all that,” he said. “That’s my boy.”
