The Los Angeles Rams ultimately landed wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., but it sounds like part of the reason they did was down to who else had interest.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Seattle Seahawks actually made the strongest offer to Beckham in the early stages of his free agency. When the Arizona Cardinals also showed interest, the Rams decided to step up their pursuit, partly to prevent Beckham from landing with an NFC West rival.

Maybe that’s why Pete Carroll seemed so confident about a Beckham pursuit at first.

Ultimately, while it wasn’t a deciding factor, Beckham certainly considered contractual matters when hunting for a new team. That may have been the undoing of one other interested team.
