The Los Angeles Rams have a young and talented team with over $40 million in cap space. The front office is showing every intention to be Super Bowl contenders next season. This signals an active free agency and offseason in Los Angeles.

One of the best ways to bolster the roster would be bringing in new talent who also knows the coaching staff, the rest of the roster, and the organization. Bringing in players who previously played for Sean McVay could help bring the Rams back to the Super Bowl.

Here are four former Rams who would be ideal additions in the offseason.

WR Odell Beckham Jr

Perhaps adding another wide receiver isn't at the top of the list of priorities for the Rams. There are plenty of playmaking wideouts who will once again give Matthew Stafford plenty of weapons in the passing game. But no team with Super Bowl hopes can turn down an opportunity to bring in as talented a receiver as Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham and the Rams had a mutually beneficial stint in 2021 when the All-Pro receiver had five touchdowns in eight regular season games in Los Angeles. He then went on to add two more in the offseason as the Rams won the Super Bowl.

The 31-year-old LSU product spent the last season with the Baltimore Ravens and was generally productive, finishing with 35 receptions, 565 yards, and three touchdowns. Yet, the reporting suggests that a return to Baltimore is unlikely for Beckham.

This opens the door for bringing him back as a WR3/4 to Los Angeles. There is already a pre-existing relationship and chemistry between Stafford and Beckham, who already know the offensive scheme. His veteran experience and playmaking ability could prove valuable to this young Rams offense.

This all depends on the financial demands both sides would have for each other. Beckham played on a one-year, $15 million deal with the Ravens in 2023. If he has a similar expectation on the open market this offseason, it will be hard for the Rams or another contender to bring him in. If he is willing to give his former team a discount, however, he could be an important cog in the high-powered Rams offense.
