A Ram is a male sheep. A goat is an totally diverse species.
With trade rumors swirling all-around Beckham yet again many thanks to a “bold prediction” from NFL insider Jay Glazer that the Pro Bowl vast receiver would be dealt by the Giants this offseason, Beckham despatched 1 of his trademark cryptic Tweets late Wednesday night.
It involved a goat emoji, which frequently is used by athletes and in athletics as shorthand for Biggest Of All-Time.
Except, in this case, could the goat emoji be a close substitution for the unavailable ram emoji?
That was the hot subject of speculation Thursday morning on WFAN between co-hosts Boomer Esiason and Greg Giannotti and callers.
Beckham spends most of his offseason in and all-around Los Angeles (property of the Rams) and would make no top secret of preferring West Coastline dwelling to East Coastline dwelling.
Reading through between the strains, it could be the which means of “it’s just diverse more than here” in Beckham’s Tweet. Or not.
But, even if Beckham is longing for a place on the Rams, it does not signify the experience is mutual. The Rams bought to the Super Bowl without the need of Beckham, and have a strong receiver corps led by Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp.
“Everything is crazy,” Woods explained when asked by NJ Advance Media about past offseason’s rumors of acquiring Beckham. “He is a wonderful participant. You see a great deal of stuff that goes on off the discipline.
“Our major point is ‘we not me.’ We preach guys to obtain in with total motivation to the team and total selflessness. We inquire our receivers to block and do it all. It was a wonderful addition to incorporate Brandin Cooks to this combine.”
There is no confusion below: The Rams reportedly named the Giants about buying and selling for Beckham past season and backed off when the inquiring cost attained two to start with-spherical draft picks. With Beckham unsigned outside of 2018 at that place, the Giants were entertaining all features without the need of truly searching Beckham.
The Rams finally traded for Cooks alternatively of Beckham and place together the No. 2 scoring offense in the NFL. Where would they have been with Beckham in the combine, much too?
“We’d however be in the Super Bowl,” Gurley explained.
A single 12 months later, Beckham is signed to a five-12 months deal value $90 million with $65 million assured. Those people salary figures are data for a NFL vast receiver.
Giants general manager Dave Gettleman tried using to slash off trade speculation just before it commenced on Jan. 2, when he explained, “We did not indicator him to trade him.”
A new firm stance no doubt, but there is no holding Beckham’s mega celebrity out of the information.
