You know it’s an exclusive guest list when helping your coach win his first Super Bowl title does not secure you an invitation. But for Odell Beckham Jr. was a formal invitation to Sean McVay’s wedding just a technical detail.
On Monday, the Los Angeles Rams head coach joined the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast and shared a little insight into what happened at his wedding celebration this weekend. Namely that he had an unexpected participant in the form of a star wide receiver.
“So probably the most stressful thing about this wedding was figuring out, okay, how do you get the guest list right where you do not have any kind of interruptions, or you know, someone gets unnecessarily hurt in their feelings because you are doing well. compared to guys, “McVay said. “So I just invited the captains from last year’s team, and then there were a couple of other guys who are retired players that you still have good relationships with.”
OBJ fell into none of the categories, but a smiling McVay explained that this did not deter him.
OBJ really crashed Sean McVay’s wedding 😂

“I love Odell, and so only in Odell’s way could he be the wedding crusher at our wedding,” McVay said. “So O showed up, crashed the wedding, and I loved it.”
The coach added that he told the free agent receiver: “You crashed my wedding, you wrote again with Rams back then, man.”
As for the status of OBJ’s recovery from the torn ACL he suffered in the Super Bowl? All signs point in a positive direction as WR was tearing up the dance floor.
“One of our team doctors was there … he was doing Odell’s surgery and Odell looked slippery on the dance floor and he said, ‘Odell, take it easy man. Let’s slow down,'” McVay said.
If the Rams were to re-sign Beckham Jr., it would not be the first big get for the team with ties to McVay’s wedding.
When asked to finish Aaron Donald’s contract on Monday – the defensive tackle landed a $ 40 million increase over the last three years of his existing contract, which will make him the highest paid non-quarterback in the NFL – McVay noted : “We had a feeling it was going in the right direction when he was at my wedding on Saturday night.”
Nothing like a wedding to bring people together.
