If Odell Beckham Jr. is successful, he would like to prepare for his ninth season in the NFL.
Instead, he is expected to miss most of the 2022 campaign due to his ACL injury.
He can’t do anything but go through the recovery process instead of attending boot camp.
These are the games he will miss the most, especially now that he is a Super Bowl champion.
Say what you want about him, but he helped the Los Angeles Rams cause in Super Bowl LVI.
Had he not been injured, he could have been the game’s MVP, an accolade that went to Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp.
However, Beckham claims the injury is inevitable based on his recent tweet.
Krazy thought…really played the entire back half of the season without an ACL and won a super bowl! God don’t miss, I swear

Beckham said: “Krazy thought…really played the whole back half of the season without an ACL and won a super bowl! God does not fail, I swear.
If so, was he playing with a bad knee leading into the playoffs?
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport revealed that Beckham’s recent surgery was to correct the previous operation he underwent while still with the Cleveland Browns.
Additionally, he said injuring his ACL again gave relief to people around him because he could fix his knee.
With proper surgery, he can continue playing at a high tempo for more seasons.
Where will Beckham play?
For now, he remains a free agent as it is uncertain if he can play in 2022.
However, the Rams have indicated their interest in re-signing him.
Beckham will likely be interested in returning to Los Angeles but nothing is official until he signs a contract.
Before the Rams make their offer, they will monitor his situation after the surgery.
If he does well, general manager Les Snead won’t hesitate to offer him a long-term deal.
