A scene from L.A.: Adding divisive, unproductive Odell Beckham Jr. is a bad idea for the Rams

While meeting with media after the takeover on Thursday, Stafford fired what seemed to be a warning shot.

“Everyone on our team plays their part,” he said. “He does a great job of figuring out what that role is going to be and going out there and proving it both on the practice field and in the game and I know he’ll do that.”

Kupp concurred, saying that the culture has become so strong that a stubborn can’t fall under the weight of the former superstar.

“I think the point at play here is that when you’re not about to play for the guys next to you, when you’re not about to play for the guys next to you, I feel like you’re left out like a bad thumb. I don’t think anyone wants to be like that,” Kupp said. “If you’re not about it, there won’t be a place for you. It won’t be comfortable to be here, so being able to do that, I think, calls people up to that standard. And why we ‘what People have come, and other places that just haven’t worked, come and be a great teammate, be an incredible football player for us.

John Johnson III, former Ram safety now with Brown, is not so sure.

“He had a good point, like a complete offence,” Johnson told reporters on Thursday. “I don’t know, I feel like, being in L.A., I know for a fact that crime runs through Cooper Kupp, even in the run game, the pass game, the screen game, It runs through Cooper Kupp. So obviously, Odell is a big name and he wants to pay attention to that too. It’ll be interesting.”
