Colin Cowherd has an interesting comparison with Odell Beckham Jr
We are third into the 2022 NFL season and Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. remains a free agent. As OBJ ponders where to sign, FOX’s Colin Cowherd has an interesting comparison for him.
In Thursday’s edition of The herd, Cowherd compared OBJ to the Airbnb home rental app. He said OBJ is the kind of player you don’t want to have long term, but he’s someone you’d rather have briefly.
“At this point, OBJ is basically the Airbnb of receivers: you don’t want to own it, nothing long term. a wide receiver.”
Cowherd went on to suggest that OBJ isn’t as valuable to the Rams — short or long term — as people think. He concluded that while the Rams might have a bit of a PR problem by not offering the kind of contract OBJ wanted, they would be fine.
Last year, Odell Beckham Jr. joined the Rams mid-season after being released by the Browns and quickly returned to the form that made him a star in New York.
In seven regular season games for the Rams, OBJ had 27 receptions for 305 yards and five touchdowns. But he was far more prolific in the playoffs, posting 21 receptions for 288 yards and two touchdowns — including a Super Bowl LVI touchdown.
Did Cowherd make a relevant comparison between OBJ and Airbnb?
