There's no shortage of drama surrounding one of the NFL's most talented receivers.

According to Gary Meyers of the New York Daily News, Odell Beckham Jr. has told at least two Rams players he "wants in" on a trade to Los Angeles.

This comes after the New York Daily News reported that the Rams were interested in a deal for the Giants star receiver on Monday.

At the NFL owner's meetings this week, Giants GM Dave Gettleman wouldn't address any reports concerning Beckham's future in New York, but he did say he hadn't spoken to Odell or his agent about the reports.

Meanwhile, Adam Schefter is reporting that while the team claims it isn't actively looking to trade OBJ, the G-Men appear to be willing to entertain offers.

Adding fuel to the fire, Rams head coach Sean McVay wouldn't rule out the possibility of a trade for Beckham either.

"I think if there is one thing that you can appreciate about what we've done this offseason and the way we look at our organization is, there's no trade we wouldn't explore if we feel it can upgrade us as a team."

McVay is a big reason why going to L.A. would be an enticing option for any young offensive player. The 32-year-old won coach of the year after leading the Rams to the NFC West title and the team's first playoff appearance since 2004. After years as an assistant, last season marked his first in the league as a head coach.

That's a lot of speculation in just a few days. It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out with the NFL Draft a month away.
