Beckham’s agreement with Bitcoin and CashApp is similar to the one Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers announced earlier this month. Meanwhile, Saquon Barkley, Beckham’s former teammate with the New York Giants, has been receiving endorsement payments in Bitcoin.
In his first game with the Rams last Monday night, Beckham caught two passes for 18 yards in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Los Angeles had a bye this week and will be back in action in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers.
