Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay got married this weekend and he had a surprise guest at the wedding.

McVay revealed on SiriusXM’s “I Am Athlete” podcast that free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who played for the Rams last season, has called off his marriage. McVay said he “loved it” and used it as an excuse to try to sign Beckham for the Rams.

“I love Odell… only in Odell’s way could he be the marriage breaker at our wedding. O showed up, arranged the wedding, and I loved it,” McVay said, via Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

McVay said he jokingly told Beckham that if the wide receiver crashes his marriage, then “you re-sign with the Rams.”

McVay and Beckham seem to have a strong bond, and the coach clearly wants the receiver back despite the ACL tear Beckham suffered in the Super Bowl. Beckham suggested he wanted to return for the Rams, but wanted a fair contract to do so.

Beckham has taken his time in free agency as he seeks to regain his health. He’s no doubt heard McVay talk about returning to the Rams on several occasions, but he’s also been subjected to other recruiting arguments.
