After being tagged as washed up and a problem during his time with the Cleveland Browns, he finally became a major contributor to a Super Bowl-winning team.
He scored a touchdown early in the game against the Cincinnati Bengals and could have been the game’s MVP if he kept on playing.
Unfortunately, he suffered a gruesome injury by his lonesome that turned out to be an ACL tear.
If not for that injury, he could have taken the ball into the end zone for his second touchdown.
Instead, he’s facing the possibility of missing the majority of next season.
That possibility may have induced grief upon him, as shown in his tweet.

“Heartbreaker. Can’t even lie to y’all,” is all Beckham could say after seeing the video of his injury.
It is indeed heartbreaking because he was already at home in Los Angeles.
His huge performances during the playoffs also made him worthy of a huge contract extension.
Instead, he will undergo another rehabilitation process to get back into game shape.
Other Reactions On Beckham’s Injury
Key figures in the Rams organization had their instant reactions to the gruesome injury in the video.
Head coach Sean McVay uttered “Oh no” while quarterback Matthew Stafford speculated, “I think he tore it.”
McVay followed with “Is that his knee?” while walking towards Beckham with a terrified look on his face.
Meanwhile, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow gave a quick assessment of what happened, saying, “He had a shallow cross. He stepped weird.”
Regardless of the injury, Beckham now has a Vince Lombardi Trophy to silence his detractors.
Whether they are from the Rams or from the other teams, all NFL players wish for his speedy recovery.
