Los Angeles Rams GM addresses Odell Beckham Jr, Aaron Donald free agency

Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead says the team would absolutely love to have Odell Beckham Jr. back for the next season. After Beckham forced his way out of Cleveland, he decided to sign with the Rams and the rest is history.

Beckham revided his career in Los Angeles as he was productive during the regular season and playoffs. Unfortunately, Beckham suffered a torn ACL during the second quarter of the Super Bowl victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

"We would definitely appreciate him being a part of that diversity of [pass-catchers] we were talking about, and coming in obviously later in the season and kind of finishing things off with him," Snead said, per ESPN.

"So similar to last year, although different circumstances."

The Rams hope to get back Beckham, Aaron Donald back

Donald, who was taken by the Rams in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft, is a three-time Defensive Player of the Year and the Rams certainly don't want to lose him.

"We definitely have chatted with Aaron, his representation," Snead said. "And we're trying to come up with a win-win solution to reward Aaron but still definitely be able to continue trying to compete as a team at the highest level.

So we're in progress there." The Rams were hoping to sign Von Miller and Donald to new deals. Miller, who was acquired mid-season, formed a dominant pass rush duo with Donald. The presence of Miller and Donald played a big part in the Rams' run to the Super Bowl title.

Unfortunately for the Rams, Miller decided against returning to the Rams as he signed a multi-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. Snead was asked if the Miller departure complicates the situation with Donald. "That would be an interesting question for Aaron," he said.

"I know Aaron has articulated to us that he would like to be back and he would definitely like to continue to try to do special things, not only as an individual player but as a team. So that's been articulated. But losing Von in particular, that would be a question that Aaron would be best [to answer]."

The Rams went all in on last season and it paid off as they managed to win the Super Bowl. The Rams have secured quarterback Matthew Stafford on a new multi-year deal and it remains to be seen if the same will happen with Beckham and Donald.
