It's no secret that Odell Beckham's tenure with the Cleveland Browns left a sour taste in a lot of fans' mouths. The veteran wide receiver never lived up to his hype in Cleveland, prompting the Browns to buy him out back in November before joining the Los Angeles Rams on a one-year deal.
The move worked out for Beckham, who now gets to play in the NFC Championship Game with his good friend Von Miller. The 32-year-old outside linebacker revealed that the duo has tried to team up in the past, but the reason why they didn't will surely cause Browns fans to hate Beckham even more.
Miller told Sports Illustrated on Friday that Beckham and he discussed teaming up during this past offseason, but the wideout specifically said, "Don't come to Cleveland." The Browns only won a single playoff game since Beckham arrived in 2019, so it isn't a shock that he'd steer his friend away from the organization.
Miller also started the season with a different team — the Denver Broncos — but was traded to the Rams for a 2022 second and third-round pick on Nov. 1. He hasn't played in a Conference Championship game since the Broncos won Super Bowl 50 six years ago, so it's clear that his own move worked out for him as well.
Both Miller and Beckham will be unrestricted free agents at the end of the season, so this playoff run might be their only realistic chance to win a Super Bowl together.
For that to happen, the Rams need to get past the San Francisco 49ers in this Sunday's NFC Championship Game. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing Los Angeles as the 3.5-point home favorite.
